Prayers of the Old Testament

Fascinating information on the "Jewish Traditions of Prayer" in Giving Ourselves to Prayer. Here are two of the "Questions for Further Thought or Discussion" which I found insightful.
"Select a prayer from the Pentateuch*, Psalms, and the Prophets**. Compare and contrast their content and style."

"Describe how each style can be used effectively in discipling believers in the Christian expression of prayer."
*The Pentateuch is the first five books of the Old Testament.
**The Prophets are the books from Isaiah through the end of Old Testament.

I've posted a couple more quotes from this chapter at my other blog Grow2Sow

PROCLAIM the good news; HEAL the sick and oppressed; BRING JUSTICE
