NextLevel Online: More Than Prayers: Seeing Jesus in the Psalms
Session 5: Psalms of Lament (Psalm 22)
Laments are prayers that express anger, frustration, grief and disappointment with God. They are some of the most common prayers in the Book of Psalms. Of the laments, Psalm 22 is one of the most intense, expressing the psalmist’s feelings of abandonment by God during one of the most trying times of his life. The psalm takes on greater significance because it was prayed by Jesus from the cross.
