Prayers of Lament – Christine Valters Paintner 

October 6, 2017

“The Hebrew Scriptures are filled with prayers of crying out to God. Prayers of Lament give form and voice to our grief, a space to wail and name what is not right in the world in the context of prayer. The prayer of lament is first and foremost truth-telling, it begins by challenging the way things are. Lament names that something is not right in the world.”
