God’s Word Goes Forth: Come to the Lord in Prayer
The LORD’s unfailing love and mercy still continue, Fresh as the morning, as sure as the sunrise. The LORD is all I have, and so in him I put my hope. -Lamentations 3:22-24
Lamentations is a collection of poems or “laments” that are presented as eyewitness accounts to the Babylonian invasion of Jerusalem. A writer called “the prophet” presents the poem in this passage. The prophet’s lament is both personal and universal. His own experience speaks to everyone who suffers. The prophet, by enumerating his own severe trials, and showing his trust in God, encourages his people to trust in the God and his never-failing mercy.
