Worship and Wisdom from the Word


The year of 2022 Grasping the Word will focus on a Psalm of the month and a Proverb of the month.  We learn to worship according to "His excellent greatness" with the Psalmists and to "walk in wisdom"  through the Proverbs.

When we bring God's word directly into our praying, we are bringing God's power into our praying. 

- Joni Eareckson Tada

A key component in Spiritual growth is a relationship with God through prayer and the Word of God.  GRASP 2022 highlights one Psalm a month each can read, hear, meditate upon, memorize and study.  In addition, there will be one verse of the books of wisdom each month.  By all of us focusing on the same verses we grow individually and also in unity as the body of Christ.
