Product Description

By investigating the lives of Job, David, Jeremiah, and Jesus, Michael Card reveals how lament can be a cathartic completion of our worship and love of God.

It's easy to praise God when things in your life are going well, but what about the other times? What happens when mountaintop experiences cascade into seasons of struggling in the valley?

God desires for us to pour out our hearts to Him, whether in joy or pain. But many of us don't feel right expressing our anger, frustration, and sadness in prayer. Our personal worship experience is not complete unless we understand the lost language of lament.

In A Sacred Sorrow, author, musician, and Bible teacher Michael Card takes you through the Scriptures to show you what your worship and prayer life has been missing. Learn new ways to honour God and deepen your relationship with Him by:

- Becoming more honest in worship
- Trusting in His unchanging presence
- Believing in His constant loving-kindness
- Realising that the sharing of your sorrow is an act of worship

From Job to David to Christ, men and women of the Bible understood the importance of pouring one's heart out to the Father.

Examine their stories and expand your definition of worship. Let your pain, questions, and sorrow resound with praise to a God who is moved by your tears.
