My God, Why has thou forsaken me? - Matthew 27:46



“My God, Why have You forsaken me?” 
(Matthew 27:46)

Click Logo to LISTEN NOW!


Transcendent and Intimate God –
God who is so far beyond us and yet so very near to us -

We come to you in this moment with mixed feelings.  In this life, we have moments of sunshine and moments of rain but there are times when the sun and the rain come at the same time.  And when the Lord cries out to you from the cross, feeling forgotten and forsaken, yet purposeful and prepared, we have a glimpse of his acquaintance with the reality of our human condition.  This was one of those mixed feeling moments that we have and that Jesus had.
My God why have you forsaken me?

Lord God, we have had many mixed feeling moments in our lives and have cried out in the way that Jesus did from the cross.  We have cried out at the report of gang violence and rejoiced at graduation ceremonies.  We have cried out at the realities of racism and at the rewards of repentance.  We have cried out at the retardation of values and the redemption of perpetrators of violence.  In these and in so many other moments of mixed feelings that seem to put us at a crossroads of divine destination and derailing devastation, we have heard the cry of men and women as well as our own voice exclaim –
My God, why have you forsaken me?

And to our cry, you lovingly remind us that you are with us always – in the sunshine and the rain – your presence remains the same.  So, in this moment, we say THANK YOU that our cry does not scare you or push you away.  We thank you that you are able and willing to respond when what we are called to do also causes us to cry out in desperation for relief and rest.  We thank you that our cry is welcomed as a prayer acknowledging your power to deliver us or to give us the strength to make it through.  We thank you for your holy perspective that sees beyond these moments and is so in touch with us in these same moments.

God, we pray that in these moments of mixed feelings that you would remind us that all things will mix and work together for our good.  May we be an encouragement to others who are experiencing the smooth and the rough spots at the same time along their journey.  And may we always look to you for you are never far away and when we feel forsaken, that is when you are closest to us.

IN THE NAME OF THE ONE WHO HEARS AND RESPONDS TO OUR CONFUSING CRIES… AMEN.

God Loves You and I do too!
