Prayers of Lament
I had a man come up to me straight after I had shared this sermon with our Crossway community a couple of weeks ago, and looking into my eyes he said with a smile:
I have been a Christian for 30 years, and I have NEVER heard anyone preach on prayers of lament. I just wanted to say thanks.
I was taken aback by his statement, that a part of our relationship with God that is so integral, that is, communication when we are suffering, hurt, isolated, when we are at our worst, had (and has) been rendered mute within churches for so long. Perhaps prayers of lament will be a new idea for you too.
