By: Rick Love With so much violence in our world, Christians must learn to bring their pain and the pain of others into God presence. Prayers of lament, which make up a third of the psalms, will help us to "weep with those who weep."
Some come to worship filled with joy over some goodness that gives them gratitude, which makes praise and thanksgiving easy to offer. But others come weeping, crying for help, or dismaying over some experience that’s tough to face. Others are negotiating with God over something over which they feel out of control. This psalm has something for us all and we’re invited to dance a jig of gratitude no matter where we are in life.
