Praying Through the Bible #88

TEXT: Lamentations 3

Over the past few weeks, we have looked at the subject of prayer from passages in the book of Jeremiah. Jeremiah, a prophet of God, predicted that God's judgment would come down on the nation of Judah because of their continued sins. Jeremiah was faithful in his task of warning the people of Judah, but they didn't listen, and God's judgment came. After Jerusalem fell, Jeremiah composed a new series of messages, and that is what we are learning from today -- the book of Lamentations. Whereas Jeremiah is a book of "warning," Lamentations is a book of "mourning." Lamentations shows us Jeremiah's words after the punishment that God had promised finally came. 

If you are a child of God, it is likely that you will find yourself in the same situation as the children of Israel at least once or twice in your life, for the Bible says, 'whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, even as a son in whom his father delighteth.' The question we want to address tonight is how we should pray when we are being chastised by God. We will be spending the next few weeks in Lamentations chapter 3 because this passage of mourning gives us 12 specific insights into how we should respond when we are being chastised by God.
