While reading through the wonderful praises to God in the Psalms, I thought I would like to write a psalm too. But how does one go about writing a psalm? Yes, I looked it up on the internet and was surprised to find all kinds of information on how to write a psalm. There was even a form available. The format is a good one to use for prayer too: recognize God’s goodness, express gratitude, praise God, list blessings and end by affirming his goodness. Of course, not all psalms are praise psalms, some are laments. But there was info on how to write those too. Obviously I wasn’t the first to come up with the thought. There can’t be too many psalms praising our holy God!
