7 Psalms To Pray During Lent

by Catholic Media, Lent, Liturgical Seasons

The Psalms are a wonderful way to pray at any time of year because they truly echo the emotions of the heart and draw us closer to God.

Since the seventh century, it has become a common spiritual practice to pray the seven penitential psalms during Lent. These psalms in particular express sorrow for our sin and remind us of God’s mercy.

After reciting each psalm, pray: Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end, Amen.
