Sermons about Lament
There are four beliefs that come with the mourners who will receive comfort: 1. The first mourn over their own sin, 2. The mourn over the sins of others, 3. God loves others more than we do, and 4. They mourn over the physical separation between themselves and Jesus. Join us as we explore the second beatitude, "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted."

FUEL HSM's 10-4 Prayer Series, focusing on hearing and talking with God. Focus tonight on lament and thanksgiving
The book of Habakkuk gives us permission to cry out to God. Red-in-the-face, fire-in-the-belly, outrageous cries to God. Like a majority of the psalms, Habakkuk uses lament to tell God he's not pleased with life as it is. The prophet asks the lingering question: "How long will God be silent?" God is no stranger to pain. Nor does He want us to stuff our complaints. In fact, the response of the faithful is to cry out to God and expect His presence in our pain.
