About the Series
What would happen if you told God how you really feel or what you really think? Have you ever found yourself praying the same words over and over again without really opening up with God?
No other part of the Bible exposes our inner struggles more than the Psalms. Each Psalm reaches beyond the world of sight and sound to reveal what our senses long to see and hear—our authentic self and the heart of God.
Join us this summer as we walk through the Psalms and learn to pray real prayers. Don’t worry. God is big enough to handle all your pain, rage, fear, desire for control, prejudice, greed, doubt, unfulfilled longings… or any other thoughts or feelings stirring inside you. He’s inviting us to take off our mask and spend this summer praying the Psalms.

Prayer is a foundation of the Christian life. Yet, if we are honest, it can be a great area of struggle and dryness. The Psalms can reinvigorate our passion as God gives us words to speak. We learn how to go to our Father in weakness, desperation, anger, joy, and praise in the Psalms. We live the full scope of the human experience in the presence of God. He is ready, willing, and able to hear your concerns, fear, hurt, and pain.
Read through the purpose and instructions on how to use this study. There is freedom in the amount of time, study, and depth you choose to give to this study.
Let’s ask God to move in our hearts and in our church to establish a growing movement of prayer and praise!

Welcome to church! I’ve titled today’s message, “Distress, Abandonment & Despair: Does God Care?” The writer of Psalm 77 walks through a deep valley and gets honest with God about what he feels. The first part of the Psalm reminds me of a song written years ago by Bill Gaither and Lily Isaacs: “Does Jesus care when my heart is pained too deeply for mirth or song; as the burdens press, and the cares distress, and the way grows weary and long?” My prayer is that you’ll be able to say by the time you leave today, “Oh, yes, He cares, I know He cares; His heart is touched with my grief. When the days are weary, the long nights dreary, I know my Savior cares.”read more
