How to Prepare Your Heart Through Lent with the Psalms of Ascent

The treasure trove of 15 psalms known as the Psalms of Ascent are found near the end of the book of Psalms. As a collection, they are not only beautiful poetry but they were used by the Jews as part of their religious festivals celebrations. This picture is a recent view of the Southern Steps. In Jesus’ day, they would have led up to a gate to allow worshippers to enter the temple in Jerusalem. The Psalms of Ascent would have been sung or chanted while people climbed these steps.

If you are looking for a reading plan for Lent this year, this article outlines the option of reading the Psalms of Ascent.

All is well,
