Hanging psalms on clearly defined journeys is a very effective. Here Psalm 150 is placed in the Royal Albert Hall, London.
In your mind start sitting on the roof. Then hang on the discs in the auditorium roof space; fly down to the Musical Director (conductor) on the stage, and so on. This ‘journey’ will help you find the next verse.
Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens![a]
2 Praise him for his mighty deeds;
praise him according to his excellent greatness!
3 Praise him with trumpet sound;
praise him with lute and harp!
4 Praise him with tambourine and dance;
praise him with strings and pipe!
5 Praise him with sounding cymbals;
praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!
|OUTSIDE on the ROOF = This is God’s SANCTUARY |
Praise the Lord

Go through a trapdoor in the roof
