Everybody has a story of sorrow to tell. The Psalms of Lament are a cry for help. It is like a 911 call. We find ourselves in a bad situation and we need a Divine intervention right away. We do not have any other recourse and we cry. Maybe we will not have the right words, and our attitudes will not be the best, but our hearts will be wide open to God.
In this book Dr. Lucas Pina, a Brazilian immigrant who lives and serve in US since 1990, reflects in some of the most well known Psalms of Laments that we have in the Bible. The intention is not only to reflect in their meaning, but also to examine the causes, helping the readers to identify with the psalmists and pray those beautiful psalms.
