Psalm 13 – Prayers of Lament
This week will explore the heart of lament through Psalm 13, and the confidence we can have in approaching God openly with our hearts. Lament is different than self-pity or depression. It is inviting people into our own brokenness. A lament grieves that the world is unbalanced. It grieves the gap between reality and God’s promise. It believes in a God who is there, who can act in time and space. It doesn’t drift into cynicism or unbelief, but engages God passionately with what’s wrong.
