Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

a prayer of lament

From Psalm 8

By day the Lord directs his love,     
    at night his song is with me—     
    a prayer to the God of my life. 
 I say to God my Rock,     
    “Why have you forgotten me? 
Why must I go about mourning,     
    oppressed by the enemy?”
My bones suffer mortal agony     
    as my foes taunt me, saying to me all day long,    
 “Where is your God?” 

Why, my soul, are you downcast?     
      Why so disturbed within me? 
Put your hope in God,     
     for I will yet praise him,    
     my Savior and my God.
