Whom have I in heaven but you?
besides you...I call with all my heart;
answer me, O LORD...
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When can I go and meet with God?
These few excerpts from the book of Psalms touch upon the essential fact that it is a Book about relationship having a real and meaningful connection with God. Far from dry and dreary religion, worship and prayer in the psalms is spirited and sincere. The psalms proclaim that all are invited to encounter God and to dialogue with him. That invitation comes down to us:and also led to this Book being written.
