Lamenting Prayers

Today's reading: Psalm 88:1-18

Life is tough, and no matter how hard we work to avoid it, difficulty and troubles will find their way into our life. When that happens, it's downright painful, and that's pretty much the picture we see in Psalm 88. The psalmist is in distress. He's dejected, his "soul is full of troubles," he's lost his strength, his "eye grows dim through sorrow," he feels helpless and rejected. Yet, even in this despondent condition, he continues to recognize God and cry out to Him for help.

How does talking with God about feeling hurt, discouraged, afraid or depressed impact your thinking and attitude? What did Psalm 88 show you about communicating with God in and through troubled times? Tami
