This is part four of a four part series that we’ve been doing through the Book of Psalms, learning how to adopt the language of these ancient poems and prayers as teaching us how to pray.
In this teaching we are going to explore Psalm 73, which is a prayer where the poet is expressing a crisis of faith. When he looks at the world, he doesn’t see a world that his faith can always make sense of. In fact, it is the opposite. It seems like many of the things that this poet believes about God are contradicted by what he sees going on around him.
