O God to whom Jesus called,

we are grateful for the invitation to

honestly express our complaints, questions, and cries to you.

Help us accept that invitation and be more authentic

in our interactions with you,

so we may better understand your gracious presence

and better understand ourselves.

In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.

“And about three o’clock Jesus cried with a loud voice, 

‘Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?’ that is, ‘My God, my God, 

why have you forsaken me?’” Matthew 27:46/Mark 15:34 NRSV
