Devotional: Lament

Heritage Presbyterian Church

Scriptures – several of the Psalms, Book of Lamentations

Theme: To lament is to cry or wail. The Book of Psalms contains many laments in which the writer is upset and crying out to God in pain, anger, or despair. During the lament, the writer cries out to God – but the writer also calls on God to be faithful, to see the pain and to relieve it somehow. To cry out to God is NOT a bad thing…it might even make you feel better.
