Depression and Despair: Praying When You've Given Up

God gave us not only instruction on how to pray, but even gave us an entire book of prayer in the Psalms. In this sermon, we explore how the Psalms "give us language" when we are depressed, desperate, and miserable. The psalmist says he is speechless, sleepless, and questions God's faithfulness. Yet that doesn't stop him from crying out, even if his cry sounds faithless and even misguided.
