Drought-time faith


Jeremiah 14:1-9 takes us into a real-time angst-ridden experience of drought where no relief is in sight. How do people pray in such circumstances?

Lay it all out as it is – don’t hold anything back. Be impolite and complain – God is not so fragile that God cannot handle it! But Jeremiah also identifies with and owns up to his people’s own transgressions – a hard ask for us in a society that abandons the common good in favour of individualistic self-interest.

Nevertheless, in spite of circumstances, a trust in God’s provision prevails.
