When tragedy strikes, where do you turn?
As his world crumbled around him, the prophet Jeremiah poured out his pain to God. In his poetic expression of pain, the book of Lamentations, we discover a God who knows our suffering and welcomes the honest cries of our hearts.
In this three-week study, learn from Jeremiah’s example of lament and bring your own pain, loss, and doubt before the God who sees you.
In week one, witness Jeremiah’s mourning as he watches the destruction of Jerusalem, his beloved city. Will he blame God for this suffering? Or will Jeremiah identify the nation’s sin and God’s righteous judgement upon it?
In week two, watch as Jeremiah recounts his personal suffering yet remembers the faithfulness and compassion of God. Like Jeremiah, we can find comfort in God’s presence and trust Him through trials.
In your third and final week, experience Jeremiah’s hope for redemption. As Jeremiah pleads for God’s mercy toward His people, we remember our own yearning for future restoration.
The book of Lamentations reminds us that turning to prayer in tragedy demonstrates our faith. Will you turn to God with your pain?
