When stress abounds, soothe your anxious heart with peace and praise.

From constant waves of negative news to meeting family, career, and community needs, women today often feel more anxious than ever. Amidst the clamor of the world and the internal longings for peace, our overwhelming need is for more of God's extraordinary presence, peace, and power in our lives.

Join Becky Harling for a 6-week study that looks to Psalm 94:19: "When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy!" The Extraordinary Power of Praise will help you put into practice the two-step process for soothing an anxious heart: finding joy to replace anxiety and learning to pour out our hearts to God in praise. Each day includes a study of a Psalm, thought provoking questions, and short morning and evening prayers. You'll also find suggested praise songs and prayer journaling prompts to help you engage more deeply with God. As you meditate on the Psalms throughout this 6-week study, you'll experience the genuine joy of God's presence, develop a positive outlook in the midst of the world's stress, and find victory over fear and anxiety.

The Extraordinary Power of Praise is suited for both individual and group use. For more of Becky's engaging, empathetic Bible teaching, go deeper into this study with the companion video series, available on Vimeo for download at

You can also find more peace through the Psalms with Becky's latest daily devotional Psalms for the Anxious Heart.

"The world we live in has thrown us a curveball, and most of us feel apprehensive. In this powerful study, Becky Harling points us to the Psalms. Weaving profound biblical truth with poignant illustrations, this study emphasizes the necessity of clinging to Scripture, being intentional in our praise, reflecting on His truth, delighting in His presence, and rediscovering our joy. You can use this resource for personal study, but even better, gather your friends—in person or on a screen—where you can experience transformation together."
—CAROL KENT, speaker and author, He Holds My Hand: Experiencing God's Presence and Protection

"Author Becky Harling has given us a precious gift in her latest Bible study, The Extraordinary Power of Praise. This study takes the reader to the feet of Jesus and equips them to receive His promise of peace in these extraordinary times. I've already taped quotes to my own bathroom mirror to remind me of God's provision. This is a book I'll share again and again."
—EDIE MELSON, award-winning author and director of the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference

"Holding this study book in my hand invites me into a sacred place with eager anticipation and poised pen. The beauty and layout of the book draws me in, but it's the honesty and authenticity of the author that spurs me on to dig deeper for those truths I desperately need. Each Morning Prayer prepares me to plumb the depths of God's love and discover necessary biblical truths. Becky writes from the heart and helps us discover the power of praise because she has lived this. We all need these tools of praise to help us break through the insidious barriers of anxiety."
—HEIDI MCLAUGHLIN, international speaker and author of Fresh Joy: Finding Joy in the Midst of Loss, Hardship and Suffering

"Becky's perspective on anxiety and worry is one we can all relate to. She beautifully leads us to God's Word and praise to renew our minds and settle our hearts on the truths about God that we can often forget during times of stress or anxiety. Through the practices of praise, memorizing God's Word, and dwelling on the truths we read about before our head hits the pillow, she helps the reader by giving them a plan to implement these practices in their everyday lives. I believe her encouragement and teaching will help us all let the peace of Christ rule in our hearts more fully as we focus our hearts toward Him."
—REBECCA DOTSON GEORGE, speaker, writer, and host of the Do The Thing Movement podcast

"The Extraordinary Power of Praise is . . . extraordinary! Becky combines solid Bible teaching with personal anecdotes to help readers understand and apply the power and principles of praise to their lives. The easy-to-follow format includes personal growth questions, space for readers to write prayers to God, a suggested Scripture memory verse, and the title of a worship song that complements the day's study. In a world filled with fear, this resource aligns readers' thoughts with God's truth and leads to life transformation. I highly recommend it for both personal and small group study."
—GRACE FOX, author of Moving from Fear to Freedom: A Woman's Guide to Peace in Every Situation

"As someone who struggles with anxiety and often feels helpless about it, Becky's newest book is pure gold! More than a Bible study, Becky's book is like an understanding-filled anxiety rehab program that kicks in the first few pages. Not only did I feel more peace while reading it, but I also felt hopeful that an anxiety-free future can be a reality. With these tools, I know it's possible. This book is a must-read for anyone who needs a little more peace and freedom in their lives!"
—ANNE WATSON, Business Strategy Coach

"I have a tremendous amount of love and adoration for Becky. I remember asking her how she so quickly wrote Psalms for the Anxious Heart in the middle of a pandemic! I recall her saying that the devotional was an overflow of how she lives her life. An outpouring resulting from being in God's Word and putting it into practice. That devotional really ministered to my heart and the many I gifted it to. The Extraordinary Power of Praise is no different. I have read through the Psalms many times over the years, yet struggled with how to fully engage the Psalms with vulnerability before a holy God. Can I really be honest with God? The answer is yes. As Becky reminds us, "The degree to which we are authentic with God is the degree we will experience intimacy with God." If you desire greater intimacy with God, a heart transformed, a mind renewed, strengthened, and refreshed, The Extraordinary Power of Praise is your perfect companion."
—LISA BISHOP, director of Women's Ministry, Park Community Church, Chicago

"Oh, friend! If you have ever spent one sleepless night in worry, if anxiety has ever run away with your joy, if you have ever been overcome by concern over the unanswered questions of life, you must absorb the truth and the hope that is lavishly given in Becky Harling's new book, The Extraordinary Power of Praise. This is the book that we all need to read as we process the events in our world today. Becky has accurately, practically, and hopefully communicated the eternal treasure that is brimming over in the book of Psalms. Becky has truly hit the mother lode of untapped power from this vital book in Scripture. I will be reading this book over and over again as I continue to tap into the power that is mine as I worship the Lord!"
—CAROL MCLEOD, blogger, podcaster, Bible teacher, writer, bestselling author of Significant and Vibrant

"As Christians, we know we're supposed to "cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you" (1 Peter 5:7), but unfortunately, that's often easier said than done—especially when we're right in the midst of our trials. I love how Becky calls us back to God's Word to find real peace, rest, and reassurance no matter what we're facing today. If you struggle with worry or anxiety, this Bible study is for you!"
—BRITTANY ANN, author of Fall in Love with God's Word: Practical Strategies for Busy Women and founder of

—KRISTIN LEMUS, founder of Brave Moms, speaker, and podcast host

"When I opened Becky Harling's book The Extraordinary Power of Praise, I was literally drowning in my own personal fear and sorrow. From the very first page, God began to lift my heart and change my attitude. I began listening to precious YouTube praise music. I started printing out verses from the Psalms and putting them around house, and journaling my prayers. I woke with praise on my lips and went to sleep praising God.  When fear started to creep in, I wept before the Lord and shared all with Him and ended with praise. I have made a Thankful List, and so much more. All of these precious experiences were encouraged and directed by Harling in her powerful book, The Extraordinary Power of Praise. I am so grateful. Thousands of others need this book as well."
—JENNIE AFMAN DIMKOFF, author and international speaker, Global Board Member, ODB Ministries
