Psalms in Prairers

The verse of Psalm 84:5 is re-
cited in the synagogue and followed
by Psalm 145 three times a day.
The rabbis apparently attach great
significance to the.. 145th Psalm
because it proclaims a deep faith
in the personal interest that God
has for every living creature. This
psalm, thus, is a necessary 13313di-
tiois for prayers because if a person
did not believe this, he certainly
could not believe that the Almighty
would even listen -to his prayers.
The verse from Psalm 84:5 is
attached to this psalm because it
proclaims "Happy Are They That
DEP 11 In _ Thy
s House: They Will
Always Piahelbee." The psalm
thus expresses the .Artne of feermg
at home with God. and worshiping
in His holy environment.
The fact that the latter half of
the verse is expressed In the future
indicates a great.hope Ion the part
of the worshiper that there will
always be this contact between
man and God expressed in prayer.
