A Prayer to Grieve with Others

Updated Apr 26, 2024

Many of us don’t love the Book of Job. Job experienced so much tragedy. It is terrifying to think about how God allowed Satan to terrorize this man. To add insult to injury, Job’s friends attempt to comfort him but make things worse. But the straw that breaks the camel's back, God is seemingly silent the entire time Job’s drama unfolds. I want us to camp out today in the middle of Job’s grief and lament. I don’t want us to do what Job’s friends did and miss the importance of this part. Let’s examine our propensity to shy away from the hard stuff and our inability to tolerate the grief of others, shall we?
