Reading a Psalm can be encouraging and helpful to your spirit. Praying a Psalm can help even more. Jesus prayed from the book of Psalms and we should follow His example.
There are a total of 62 Psalms expounded on in this book. The author writes out the verses of each Psalm for you so you don’t need your Bible to study these particular passages. Each Psalm is followed by a short devotional. These devotions relate to the subjects presented in the verses.
After the devotional the author takes a few verses from the passage and explains their meaning. This explanation helps you see how the verses relate to your everyday life. Using the helpful information given, you are then able to pray those verses over your own difficult situations.
This book is an excellent resource for travelers or someone who only has a few moments for devotions.

This book I would put more in the study helps more than devotional category. Use as a parallel bible or commentary. Everyone has their own preference of Bible versions. The author however, doesn't use my preference KJV, so therefore, I'd use it along side of my own version putting it in the parallel context. As far as theology not everyone agrees 100% with everyone. You pick and choose what you want; Throw out what you don't want.

Ben Pattersons Gods Prayer Book is a wonderful journey through several Psalms. The rough cut edges give this book a rustic, ancient feel. Not only are entire Psalms printed in this book, the author offers several suggestions for prayer from these passages. There is also a decent starter list of what Psalms can be used for prayer over certain needs. This is a terrific book.
