We’ll be exploring if it’s ok to be angry with God through some psalms this week. Please bring some clay or playdough, your bible and a pen and paper.
The aim of this weeks session is to explore what the psalms teach us about anger.
Read: Genesis 4:1-12
Psalm 109 - try to imagine how the writer felt as they were writing it, what different emotions were they feeling?
Write your own psalm / poem to God, about something that makes you angry, and how you want God to sort it out. Follow this pattern, based on the Psalms
Address: an address to God e.g. God my father
Complaint: complaints e.g. why don’t my parents let me do what I want
Request: e.g. please change their attitude to me
Motivation: (why God should act) e.g. it’s unfair that this is happening and as you love justice…
Confidence: confidence that God will answer your prayer, and praise for his answers in the past
Shout - Chris Tomlin
Lord You Hear the Cry - Geraldine Larry
Prayer: pray out your psalm to God.
Looking forward to seeing you Sunday at 7. Don’t forget your bible.
