Across the generations, many Christians have made a habit of praying monthly through all 150 psalms—the biblical songs that undergird much of our corporate worship and individual devotion. Over thousands of years of memorization, recitation, and singing, the people of God have found in the Psalms a God-centered view of reality that speaks to all our joys, trials, times of suffering, and experiences of faith and doubt.
In Psalms in 30 Days, author and teacher Trevin Wax has adapted a centuries-old approach to reading the Psalms by providing a “Morning,” “Midday” and “Evening” pattern, following the Scriptural precedent for praying three times a day. This journey through the Psalms features other songs from the Bible, confessions of faith, and written prayers from faithful Christians who have gone before us. Here is a guide to praying through the Psalms each month by lifting our eyes, three times a day, to see and experience the goodness and faithfulness of God in the midst of all things.

Psalms in 30 Days features the highly readable, highly reliable text of the Christian Standard Bible® (CSB). The CSB stays as literal as possible to the Bible’s original meaning without sacrificing clarity, making it easier to engage with Scripture’s life-transforming message and to share it with others.
