“The Psalmist didn’t receive an answer to his lament: instead, the exercise of faith helped him to turn his heart in worship.”
Ministering to Students in Crisis
We hope these resources will point you and your students to the One who is near to the broken-hearted and saves the crushed in spirit (PS 34:18).
I can do little to rescue him, but I can bring him before you, trusting that you are intimately acquainted with his tears and tossings.
Look and see, oh Lord, what has happened to your children – those who were slain in a place that should be safe.
We pray that the hope of the gospel brings comfort and peace even as we are confronted with the horror of more children and teachers lost in the places where they should be safest.
My preaching and teaching to teenagers is always more vibrant when I am aware of my own death.
We remind our kids each day that God lights our way in deepest darkness and that his faithful presence can give us hope when all life’s other lights grow dim.
