Today we continue into our fourth week of our “Falling Into the Psalms” series, as we look at Psalms 22 and 13, two songs of lament.  A lament is a cry from the soul.  It can be a prayer of help coming out of a time of pain, a cry of urgent need or of distress, a cry of separation, or a cry of protest or anger.  Where do we go with our feelings of anxiety, pain, or abandonment when our world has been shaken?  We turn to God, and we follow in the footsteps of those who have gone before us, because ultimately, lament leads through pain into healing.

Based on Psalm 13 and Psalm 22.
