Course Description
Book of Psalms Bible Study Lessons. In this Psalms study you will learn the SOAP method. If you want the structure of daily lesson plans, use the suggested workbook or the recommended commentaries for Psalms. 

Learn to seek peace in times of difficulty and express your emotions to God

Examine the Book of Psalms and you will learn how these writers found strength in hard times. They celebrated in good times. They connected with God through prayer. The Psalm writers did not always use language of encouragement. Sometimes they expressed their bitterness and raw hurts. And so we can too. Sometimes it’s okay, to be vulnerable, so God can restore our peace. Learn how in your study of Psalms

SOAP Bible Study Method

SOAP is a method of Bible reading which follows this format. Many will use a journal, colorful pens, and creative worship. Others will keep it simple with a sheet of paper and write one paragraph for each of these four parts:
  • Scripture – Read a Psalm and write down a verse or two that captures your attention.
  • Observation – What are your personal observations from this Scripture?
  • Application – How does it apply to your everyday life? What can you do to apply this in your life today?
  • Prayer – Write a personal prayer based on your observation and application.
