In this conversation, Pastors Erik, Cody, and Gavin discuss the Psalms of Lament, specifically looking at Psalms 51, 77, and 142 as examples. Read those Psalms, listen to the audio of the conversation, and chip in on the comments section below with your thoughts on the three questions we discuss:
- Which Psalm did you choose as a representative of this genre and why does it resonate with you personally?
- Why does this type of Psalm matter to the life of the church?
- The Psalms are songs, so, if you’re sitting down to read these Psalms what song would you put on in the background to set the mood?
For our next Bible Convo we will discuss the Thanksgiving Psalms using Psalms 65, 75, and 92 as examples!

I am sure Brittany Spiers’ only thought during recording “Oops, I did it again.” was that maybe someone some day, would see the theological significance of the song. Gavin, you did it again! Actually, I think that the song is really how we view our transgressions; oops, Sorry. Wink, wink. Tee hee, no biggie. Definitely not the deep emotion of a lament psalm but more than accurate on how most of us view our sin. (You can’t believe how I want to join the Erik put down fest!!)
Favorite psalm, I have to go with Cody’s psalm 77. Song choice; 1971 Grammy nominee “Alone again, Naturally” by Gilbert O’Sullivan. Within this song there is the lyric “I remember I cried, not wishing to hide the tears…” Sorry Erik!!
Again a great podcast.

I found Psalm 77:11-12 to be a good reminder. When in lament and questioning where God is and wondering if you’ve been forgotten – reflect on times when God has been faithful, whether in scripture or through personal experience. I’ve found this to be helpful and provides perspective during difficult times.
