About the Book

Each morning, Monday through Saturday, beginning in January of 2023, author Dr. Jerry E. Sipe, read the Bible, highlighting meaningful verses and absorbed the connected Bible study guide. Many times during the reading, God gave him a subject for the day. As soon as Sipe finished his talk with God, he continued his worship by writing a poem.

In Modern Psalms for Worship and Reflection, Sipe offers a collection of these poems, calling them Psalms because, like David of old, writing them increased his intimacy with the Lord. The selections deal with the topics, thoughts, and feelings that came to Sipe during those times of worship. Topics range from the joy and peace enjoyed in the fellowship of the Lord, to why the Lord lets bad things happen to good people.

Sipe offers these Psalms for worship and reflection, helping others feel the closeness to the trinity that he enjoyed.
