Psalm 44 – Yet For Your Sake

Psalm 44 – Yet For Your Sake  If Psalm 42-43 line up with Jesus’ expectation of the cross and his feelings of being God-forsaken, then the communal lament of Psalm 44 lines up with the persecuted Church. What is truly remarkable is that Jesus’ Prayer Book describes the state of the Church in a hostile world long before the people of God understood the strategy of the cross. The psalmist’s lament foreshadows the apostolic strategy for how the Church is to relate to the world.
