NavPress A Sacred Sorrow: Reaching Out to God in the Lost Language of Lament

It's easy to praise God when things in your life are going well, but what about the other times? What happens when mountaintop experiences cascade into seasons of struggling in the valley?

God desires that we pour out our hearts to Him, whether in joy or pain. But many of us don't feel right expressing our anger, frustration, and sadness in prayer. According to author, musician, and Bible teacher Michael Card, our personal worship experience is not complete unless we understand the lost language of lament.

In A Sacred Sorrow, Card takes you through the Scriptures to show what your worship and prayer life has been missing. From Job to David to Christ, men and women of the Bible understood the importance of pouring one's heart out to the Father. Examine their stories and expand your definition of worship. Let your pain, questions, and sorrow resound with praise to a God who is moved by your tears. Winner of the 2006 Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) award in Christian Life.

This book has increased my understanding of the character of God in a way that has brought me to an unquenchable desire to know Him more and more. I have stayed in this book for a number of months to saturate my mind with these ideas. 5 star Bible study guide.
