Sermon: Complaining to God

The prayer of complaint breaks every rule you have ever heard about prayer, but still God responds. It is prayer moved less by the Spirit and more by feelings. It is not worshipful, it is not necessarily spiritual, and it isn’t very theological. It is extremely personal, but still God responds. Complaint comes from the dark night of the soul when our faith cannot explain and our heart cannot accept what is happening in our lives. It is birthed in the moments when it seems like evil triumphs over good, when senseless tragedy is unrestrained, when healing is begged for but withheld. This intense sermon explores several prayers of complaint found in Scripture, the personal context behind them and the response of God to them.
