DAY 242: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
Today, we journey through a psalm of prayer and psalms of praise.
Ask the Lord to grant you wisdom in understanding Psalms 102-104. Read Psalms 102-104. Let’s journey!
As we journey through the fourth book of Psalms, remember that nearly every psalm can be classified as a psalm of Lament or a psalm of praise. A lament is cry to the Lord, asking Him to do something, most often when we are in pain, confused, or angry. A psalm of praise is a prayer of joy and celebration, thanking the Lord for His work.
Psalms 102-104: Psalm 102 is a prayer from an unknown person who is suffering. Psalms 103 (written by David) and 104 (author unknown) are both psalms of praise, celebrating the Lord and all that He has done. (Psalm 102:1-104:35)
Read chapters 93-95, and ask yourself these questions: Are these psalms of lament or praise? How do you know? What does this psalm teach you about the Lord God? Take a moment and offer up to the Lord God at least one praise and one lament from your own life.
