When Your Prayers Get Wet


This is an individual lament psalm, as compared with a community lament. It is also regarded as a penitential psalm (cf. 32, 38, 51, 102, 130, 143), in light of the implied sin that is acknowledged. Some denominations sing this psalm during Lent.

"Here we have something akin to the following: I am hurting; You are not helping; they are winning." (Ronald Allen)
