Endless Grace helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms--through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns--as a guide to personal devotion and meditation.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains seventy-five prayers drawn from Psalms 76-150, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Whitaker Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. While each prayer corresponds to a particular psalm and touches on its themes and ideas, it is not a new translation of the Psalms or an attempt to modernize or contextualize their content or language. Rather, the prayers are responses to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and remember the Lord's daily mercies.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and beautiful hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.

"Wouldn't it have been sublime to have had Jesus teach us to pray the Psalms? In Endless Grace we have the next best thing: two devoted followers of Jesus, Ryan Whitaker Smith and Dan Wilt, guiding us. Some days prayer flows with ease. But on many days I need help praying with the Scriptures. This need makes Endless Grace a sheer gift! A soul that is made well and given peace awaits those who sit with Ryan and Dan, their poetry, and the Psalms."

Bishop Todd Hunter, author of Deep Peace: Finding Calm in a World of Conflict and Anxiety

"Ryan Whitaker Smith and Dan Wilt have done it again. Endless Grace reads like the journal of a great poet. Each page is an invitation to dive in the depths of God's grace--each word, a beckoning call to the weary to come and swim in the unending mercy of God. This is a worshipful work of art."

Tara Beth Leach, author of Emboldened and Radiant Church
