Description

A moving spoken word lament

This spoken word lament honestly unpacks the rawness of grief and suffering, and doesn't hold back describing the relentless battle to keep going and the exhaustion of drained emotions. How long, Lord, will this continue?

But for the Christian, suffering is not the final word. Even in the face of seemingly eternal darkness, we can cling to the God who holds our fragile hearts, who strengthens our stumbling faith and whose words remind us of who he is and who he has made us to be.

We have a God who died so we could live in hope now and look forward to an eternally perfect future. How long, Lord, before you restore us?

Possible Discussion Questions

  • What truths about God do you need reminding of right now? How do they apply specifically to your circumstances?
  • Do you feel able to pray an honest, raw prayer like this to God? Is there anything holding you back?
