Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 67:1-7. Psalm 67 is a Psalm to the Chief Musician. The Psalmist calls out to God to be merciful to us, bless us, and cause His face to shine on us. So His ways will be known on the earth and His saving grace to all nations.
He encourages us over and over again to sing and praise God. He acknowledges that God is a righteous judge who governs all the nations of the world. He says when we praise God the earth will prosper and God will bless us. What are some ways we can praise God?
I love singing Christian songs of praise to God. Studying His Word and learning His ways are a way of honoring and praising Him as well. Praying and staying in communication with God is a way of showing respect and praise to Him. Sharing the Gospel with others is a way of serving God. How do you honor, praise, and serve God?
Daily Bible Reading:

Things to think about:
- How has God been merciful to you?

About the book:
The Book of Psalms:Part 3 Chapters 61-90 by Deborah H. Bateman is 28th book in the Daily Bible Reading Series. The book of Psalms contains 150 chapters. Deborah divided The Book of Psalms into five books to make it easier to read and study. Each book contains approximately thirty chapters from the book of Psalms.
Psalm 119 will not be included in The Book of Psalms since Deborah has already published a book about it called: Psalm 119: Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet.
The book of Psalms is one of Deborah’s favorite books of the Bible. It is a great book to read if you’re ever feeling down or need to renew your relationship with Christ. King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from his enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
The Book of Psalms: Part 3 Chapters 61-90 contains fifty Daily Bible Reading Lessons. Each lesson contains a brief commentary by the author, the Daily Bible Reading Scriptures, a few questions for contemplation or discussion, and a prayer of the day. It is a great Bible study for individuals or group studies.
