A much-needed resource for home liturgies and individual prayer --Contemporary Spirituality
From the Back Cover
Every commentary on the Book of Psalms has had to face the issue that many of these prayers commemorate and celebrate: wrath and vengeance. What is needed is not ingenious exegitial rationalization of ancient texts, but the kind of transformation into a work of piety and art that Nan Merrill provides.See all Product description

To give you a taste for the psalms you can find in this book, here is the beginning of the psalm 107:
"We give thanks to You,
who are the Source of Love;
whose Light shines forth
throughout the universe!
Come, awaken our hearts
that we might do your work,
For, without you, we can do nothing;
'tis your Love that loves through us."
Ultimately, your success with prayers of any kind will come not from mechanically repeating something that someone else has written, but by looking into your heart and by speaking from your heart and in that respect, you may end up altering the wording even of the psalms you find in this book to fit the prayers that live in your heart.
Just as the psalm says:
"O, that you may learn to see
with your heart,
to hear and think with your heart, as well!"
And perhaps the most important point:
"O peoples of the Light,
Awaken to the knowledge that lives within you!"
And to conclude this in the Spirit of Oneness
(and the true spirit of the Bible, the very essence of it
and those who proclaim to be the followers of jesus Christ,
and those who call themselves spiritual,
regardless of their religion or lack of it):
"And know yourself! Let your aim be
to recognize who you are.
Aspire to live as sons and daughters
of Divine Love,
to enshrine the earth with divinity,
To honor all relationships as sacred,
and to live in peace and in balance of all things.
Acknowledge the sacredness of every path,
albeit different from your own;
In this way you honor the Great Mystery,
and the wonder of all life!"
