Week 3 Homework
The Psalms are a collection of poems, songs and prayers from Israel. The goal of the Psalms is to teach about prayer and to provide a prayer book for the people of Israel as they await the coming Messiah. The Psalms fall into two major categories: lament and praise. The Psalms of lament are prayers of pain and confusion that cry out to God for help. The Psalms of praise are prayers of joy and celebration that thank God for His help. Psalm 139 is a Psalm of praise that thinks God for His all knowing power, His nearness and His guidance.
