Week 15: Psalms 56-95

Prepare these questions for Sunday, June 16.

1.  Some of these Psalms list actual tunes to be used when singing them (69, 75, and 80 for instance).  How would a known tune help the people to remember these words?

2.  Many Psalms have repeating words, phrases, or concepts since they were intended to be songs.  Why might that be useful? How could knowing the music or hearing these words sung to new music possibly change a Psalm's meaning or beauty?

3.  Psalm 56 tells of King David's fears and pleas for mercy when he was captured by an enemy army.  Compare his fears and feelings to your own struggles.  How can you use David's reaction to deal with your personal times of pain and uncertainty?

4.  Read Psalm 67. What does the Psalmist say about God in these verses?  What does he ask for from God?  How might your heart and attitude be different if you used this Psalm as a daily prayer?
