Prayer of Thirst

Psalms 42 and 43 talk about how to deal with being downcast, how to deal with being despondent, in despair, in darkness. Everybody needs this throughout life. No matter who we are, we all go through these times.

Let’s notice that there’s a condition described, then there are causes diagnosed, and then finally, there’s a cure prescribed. There’s the condition of being downcast. It’s described. Then the psalm actually gives you some idea about the causes of the condition, and then finally gives you three extraordinarily practical cures.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 8, 2015. Series "Pilgrim Prayer: Psalms for the Journey". Scripture: Psalm 42:1 - 43:5.
