Books 1 and 2 of Psalms tell the story of King David and end with Psalm 72:20, “The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended” (NASB). Through these two books, we discover that the man after God’s own heart experienced more pain and trouble than he did joy and blessing. In fact, the majority of David’s prayers are lament psalms, where he draws attention to what’s wrong in the world and asks God to do something about it. And through David’s words, we discover that we too are invited to be honest with God and that there’s nothing too big or too small to bring before our Father who loves us.
