6C. A Prayer of Lament in Solidarity with Sufferers

Text Information
First Line: How long, how long, O Lord? (All glory to God's name)
Title: A Prayer of Lament in Solidarity with Sufferers
Author (Prayer): John D. Witvliet (20211)
Author (Refrain): Clarence P. Walhout (1982)
Publication Date: 2012
Topic: Blessing; Church Year: Ash Wednesday; God as: Deliverer (12 more...)
Notes: Responsorial refrains to prayer. Psalm 6 is appropriate not only when the gathered community faces pain and anguish, but also as way of praying in solidarity with others. To emphasize this latter use, consider singing the entirety of Ps. 6, as found on p. 31, or reading or chanting the entire psalm and then continuing in prayer using the refrains and texts on this page.
