Community Psalm of Lament

Community Psalm of Lament

Omniscient God,
You are the one who sees and knows all—
Yet——this brings little comfort in the moment.
We are in a period of not knowing…
The not knowing is driving us nuts.
The not know if we or a loved one will get sick.
The not knowing what schools will look like.
The not knowing if our jobs will remain.
The not knowing when or if our lives will return to “normal.”

Why God?
The not knowing why. 
Why is this happening?
Why does this continue to happen to us?
Why do we continue to suffer?
Why, God, Why?

Omnipotent God,
Rescue us!
Save us!
Use what we do know to crush our worries and doubts.
Use what we do know to heal the brokenness.
Use what we do know to mend divides.
Use us, O God.
This we pray.
Amen.
