Lament: How to respond in time of tragedy

Psalm 42

November 11, 2018 • Bert Alcorn

As a church, we responded to the tragedies of this past week with lament. A lament is an implicit act of faith in which the community of faith turns to God as its only source of hope and comfort. The biblical psalms feature several remarkable expressions of lament. In these laments, the worshiping community expresses grief and frustration at the brokenness of the world. Biblical laments are a witness to God’s desire for honesty in worship. No experience in life is too difficult to be brought before God. Throughout Scripture, we see a common pattern of lament. Laments: 1. Are Address to God 2. Involve an affliction, complaint, and recognition that all is not right in the world 3. Contain a request for God to do something about the injustice 4 End with confidence and praise
