Lament is a heartfelt expression of sorrow for the pain and suffering that we both experience and witness in the world around us. It is a broken-hearted cry out to God that the world is not as it should be. Lament is not simply a complaint, but an invitation to bring our broken hearts to God, to meet Jesus IN the grief, instead of trying to escape or whitewash over it.

You’ll want a bowl, a pen, and a few scraps of paper...
I Open #2 | Posture Prayer
