Who Let that into God’s Prayer Book?

Reading Psalm 137 is alarming. This is how it ends:

 Daughter Babylon, doomed to destruction,
    happy is the one who repays you     according to what you have done to us.
 Happy is the one who seizes your infants  and dashes them against the rocks. (v. 8 -9, NIV) Who let that into God’s prayer book?

The Lost Art of Lament

A few weeks ago I came out of a kind of fog from all the adapting to online ministry, and I decided to read some familiar books including To Kill a Mockingbird. I started the book before the killing of George Floyd, and I finished it the weekend the protests began. Interesting timing.
