“Desperate times call for desperate measures. Would you consider prayer a desperate measure?”
I wasn’t expecting that question at the start of this interview on “prayer in desperate times”! Ben Akers, who is Director of Formed at the Augustine Institute in Denver, invited me to talk on Formed Now! about how the Psalms teach us to pray when times are rough. The idea came from my little guided journal, Lord, Make Haste to Help Me! Seven Psalms to Pray in Time of Need.
I don’t know about you, but I’m not sure what I would do without the Psalms. They have a way of meeting me right where I am; of gathering up my wayward thoughts and focusing them where they should be: toward the God who loves me, who is there to help.
Listen in as as Ben and I talk about how to pray in the bad times, and how the Psalms can help.
