Psalms - Instructions for Happiness

The Psalms are given as instruction. Originally, many of the Psalms were written as words of personal praise and prayer. However, when canonized, they become God’s instruction to us concerning prayer and praise. Just what are the Psalms instructing? Instruction in happiness is a focal point. Happiness as the well being & joy that results from life, endurance, and fruitfulness in the Lord (Ps. 1). The Psalms are instruction in happiness.
