HERE IS A FREE LAMENTATIONS DEVOTIONAL FOR STUDENTS
Lamentations is a very difficult book to read. It is a collection of five Hebrew poems that were written during Jerusalem’s traumatic destruction in 586 BC. This was the biggest catastrophe in the nation’s history. The armies of Babylon were on a warpath and Jerusalem’s walls stood in their way. So what did they do? The Babylonians burned the whole city of Jerusalem to the ground. They didn’t just destroy the city; they tortured the people in the process. The enemy army torched homes to the ground, demolished the Holy Temple, murdered families in cold blood, and transformed a thriving community into ruins.
Jeremiah, the author of Lamentations, is known as the weeping prophet. Can you blame him? He was called to pastor Israel through unthinkable tragedy and calamity. As he pens these poems, you can feel the agony in his words. Each passage was designed to help his people process their pain. While the audience may be different, the message remains the same. This devotional is designed to give us the tools we need to lament, mourn, and grieve with God.
