Through the laws of Kabbalah, each of the 150 psalms were given what the ancients called a "Wonder of God." So, to obtain a grace from the Lord, it was not enough to sing the psalm indicated, it was also necessary to perform a "plus" that allowed to be in adequacy with the Lord ...
The oldest Psalms have 3 000 years! King David, singing and dancing for God, is considered their father. Prayer of the believing Jew, as was the case of Jesus himself, the Psalms express all the human feelings of man before God, they are a prayer of praise and supplication. And since then, there is not a single moment when, somewhere in the world, a Psalm is raised to God. And thus, for centuries and centuries, these incessant praises and miraculous supplications have been realized.
"O LORD, I call on you, come hurry to me! Give ear to my voice, when I call on you. May my prayer be before your face like incense "(Ps 141: 1-2). Since those early times, men have sought to enter into communication with God. The Psalms are therefore part of these means.
In time, codifications and methods of recitation were instituted. For example at present, the Universal Catholic Church uses in the liturgy 147 psalms on the 150 of the biblical book. Thus, at each office, the psalms are the body of the prayer of the Church, the raw material of the Liturgy of the Hours.
But leave that aside to look at how early Christians used these psalms with wonderful powers. This way, much less conventional than the Liturgy of the Hours, is strongly inspired by the Jewish tradition which itself is much more inclined to rites and rituals. Through the laws of Kabbalah, each of the 150 psalms were given what the elders called a "Wonder of God." Thus, to obtain a grace from the Lord, it was not enough to sing the psalm indicated, it was also necessary to perform a "plus" that allowed to be in adequacy with the Lord.
Psalm 066: against the risks of displacement.
You have finally arrived safely! Your trip was carried out without any particular inconvenience: no accident, no loss, no theft, no fear, no nausea. When you arrive, it's time to thank the heavenly forces for their special attention to you ...

To the choirmaster. Song. Psalm.
Shout to God shouts of joy, All of you, inhabitants of the earth!
Sing the glory of his name,
Celebrate his glory with your praise!
Say to God: May your works be terrible!
Because of the greatness of your strength, your enemies flatter you.
All the earth prostrates itself before you and sings in your honor;
She sings your name. -Pause.
Come and contemplate the works of God!
He is formidable when he acts on the sons of man.
He changed the sea into a dry land,
We crossed the river on foot:
So we rejoiced in him.
He dominates eternally by his power,
His eyes watch the nations:
Let the rebels not rise up! -Pause.
Peoples, bless our God,
Sound his praise!
He has preserved life to our soul,
And he did not allow our feet to falter.
Because you have tested us, O God!
You put us in the crucible like silver.
You brought us into the net,
You have put on our loins a heavy burden,
You brought men up on our heads;
We went through fire and water.
But you pulled us out to give us abundance.
I will go to your house with burnt offerings,
I will fulfill my wishes to you:
For them my lips opened,
And my mouth pronounced them in my distress.
I will offer you fat sheep as a burnt offering,
With the fat of rams;
I will sacrifice sheep with goats. -Pause.
Come, listen, all of you who fear God, and I will tell
What he did to my soul.
I shouted at him from my mouth,
And the praise has been on my tongue.
If I had conceived iniquity in my heart,
The Lord would not have answered me.
But God answered me,
He was attentive to the voice of my prayer.
Blessed be God, Who has not rejected my prayer,
And who has not withdrawn his kindness from me!
