Mercy for Today: A Daily Prayer from Psalm 51, by Jonathan Parnell, is a great dive into Psalm 51!
Parnell’s focus in on the mercy of God, and seeking God in daily prayer.
He talks about Psalm 51 being written by King David, when the prophet Nathan confronted David about his adultery and murder.
Parnell digs deep into Scripture, while reflecting on his own personal experiences and applications of the psalm.
I like the unique publishing format of this book and I learned a lot from it. I highly recommend this book to anyone struggling to see God’s mercy in their lives, it will change you!
