Cry of My Heart – 06.03.2020

 
Jesus was a man steeped in the psalms.
They shaped how he worshipped and how he prayed.
 
Today’s reading is Psalm 22.
This the psalm that Jesus recited to himself when he was in agony on the cross.
 
As you hear this psalm tonight, may you hear the voices of all those who cry out today because they feel that God has abandoned them. These could be the cries of black and browned skin people who for decade after decade have been subjected to systemic racism and abuse.
