The book in your hand will tell you something you like and something you don't like. It will tell you that there are no short cuts and five-minute magical routines that will automatically usher you into spiritual formation land. But it will also tell you this: there is only one way to grow in our relationship with God and that is to pray, and the one sure method of learning to pray is to pray with the Psalms. In the middle of your Bible is a collection of prayers; God gave them to you to learn how to pray. --Scot McKnight, Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious Studies, North Park University
Talking Back to God is at once an eloquent defense of the Psalms, an inspirational narrative of a great man of God, a practical guide to personal prayer, and a soaring celebration of God's faithfulness in times of crisis and trial. --Darryl Tippens, author of Pilgrim Heart: The Way of Jesus in Everyday Life

Generally the basic prayers we are taught, and how we're taught to pray, I would equate with being the B-league in baseball. I would equate praying the Psalms with being on the All-Star team in baseball. I'm not at all saying that if you don't pray the Psalms, that your prayers are meaningless. That's absolutely not the case at all. God hears us right where we are, and with whatever capacity we have. What I am saying, is if you want to experience a deeper and closer encounter with God, then this is where you need to be.
Praying the Psalms gives us a voice when we often don't know what to pray, but know that there's something in our heart to pray. Over the past few days, I have been able to more fully express my fears, concerns, inadequacies, and more to God; and truly have them laid at His feet. I've come to understand more fully that the trappings of life that we all desire don't come close to being in the presence of and having a deep encounter with the Most High. I've been able to fully experience what's known as the "sweet spot" where everything is just laid bare at the feet of a loving God.
Do yourself a huge favor, and get this valuable resource/tool for your walk with God. You will never be the same, and you will not regret it.
