'The Light of the Psalms' is a unique devotional resource, thematically grouping inspiration from all 150 Psalms, focusing them on the three divine Persons of the Trinity. Each week follows a theme of prayer and uses a set of psalms that apply to that theme. Each day you will read a psalm, a short devotion and then pray for the ministry in focus that week.
God Our Refuge: 50 Psalms Celebrating God the Father-Jehovah, focuses on the first person of the Trinity. The Psalms include the Songs of Zion, the Restoration and Revival, Enthronement, Wisdom and Royal Psalms. These call us to repentance, surrender and rest in God, our Father in Heaven. God Our Redeemer: 50 Psalms celebrating God the Son-Jesus Christ focuses on the second person of the Trinity. They are used to pray through the truths surrounding Christ's redemptive work and headship over the Church. These Psalms include prayers for the sick, the Golden Chain of Trust (Pss. 3-10), prayers of lament and five psalms of thanksgiving.
God Our Rejoicing: 50 Psalms celebrating God the Holy Spirit-The Paraclete focuses on the third person of the Trinity. These psalms call us to worship, work and witness in the power of the Spirit. Divided into seven collections they include the psalms for pilgrims (the Songs of Ascent), for times of trouble, pure praise (Psalms. 145-150) and Psalms of revelation.
The Psalms are a rich spiritual resource that will inspire you to delve deeper in your quiet time.
Mike Ross is Senior Pastor of Christ Covenant Church in Charlotte, North Carolina.
... a faithful servant of God, and a trustworthy expositor of Holy Scripture. Choice selections from the work of others enrich his studies. He consistently imparts the Word to the depths of the heart (see Psalm 119:10-11): that is, his preaching informs the mind, stirs the emotions, and moves the will. I believe that reading this book will have this threefold effect on you; and that you will have cause to grow in praise and love for the Holy Trinity celebrated here.

These studies in the psalms have been a great help to my soul, and I pray that they will also be a blessing to you. Although the devotionals are short enough to fit into even the busiest schedule, they are rich in their biblical, theological, and practical content. Each chapter explains the context and structure of a biblical psalm. Often there are historical illustrations or contemporary connections that help explain what the psalm means. Along the way, Pastor Ross also shows how each psalm relates to Christ and the Christian life. Many of his devotionals have a personal quality that reflects the spiritual experience of their author. So as you read this booklet, you will come under the warm spiritual care of an experienced pastor.
