Welcome to our Series – Prayers of the Old Testament
The Psalms are often called the prayer book of the Bible, and they provide beautiful models for a variety of moods and aspects of prayer. Many Christians don’t realize that dozens of prayers that are equally rich can be found elsewhere in the Bible. Some of the briefest prayers are evocative and inspiring, such as Samuel’s prayer as a boy: “Speak, for your servant is listening” (1Samuel 3:10). Some are exuberant and joyful, such as Moses’ and Miriam’s prayers of exultation after God parted the Red Sea (Exodus 15:1-21). Jeremiah’s prayers resonate with honest passion and pain, expressing his need for God in powerful and vivid language. (Prayers of the Old Testament by Lynne M. Baab)
