Prayer and Passion of the Betrayed

Enemies. Betrayal. Death staring him in the face. David has declared his faith that God is in control and God is good. But was David’s faith a stoic, passionless, fearless thing? Just the opposite.

This morning we’ll do a deep dive into the prayer and the heart behind David’s faith when everything seemed to be against him. It will be uncomfortable. David expresses fear, terror, distress and the desire to just run away. He was overwhelmed.

Would we even know what to do with such a confession from a godly friend? Do we allow ourselves to feel like this or to confess that this is happening in our hearts? How do we pray when our emotions are this high and our world seems to be coming to an end?
