Through the Bible in a Year – July 27

The scheme for July and August can be found here

2 Ch 19-20; Acts 11; Psalm 108

Nowadays much is made, and justifiably so, of the lack of lament in the liturgy of the church [although this accusation may not be levelled at the Orthodox church whose liturgy encompasses much lament according to the season].

Yet we may well ask – whilst the liturgy of the church shies away from lament and towards Praise – do not our own personal lives of prayer exhibit the reverse tendency? How long is it since you last exalted and worshipped God – praising him for his Glory in your private devotions?

Here again the Psalms come to our aid. Praying Psalm 108 is a great antidote for our self obsessed prayer lives.
