Publisher's Description

"An overwhelming number of us are lonely," writes Marva Dawn. "Sometimes we are lonely for a specific reason: our spouse has recently died or left us; our children have just gone from home or have been tragically killed; we are fighting a particular battle against illness or suffering the ravages of chemotherapy; we are new in the neighborhood; our values are different from those of our work colleagues; it is a Friday night and all our other single friends have dates. Sometimes our loneliness is a general, pervasive alienation: we just don't feel as if we belong in our place of work, in our community, in our family, even in our church." Our struggle with loneliness often results in a lament directed at God. We might say something like "How long, LORD? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?" When we cry out words like these, we find ourselves praying the words of the Psalms. In My Soul Waits, Dawn guides us through psalms that reveal the burdens of our souls to God, and in turn reveal God's profound, intimate concern for our pain and a promise to abide with us in it. Readers feeling the sting of loneliness will take great comfort in this very personal book. Those who strive to support the lonely among them will take wise counsel from the Scriptures it expounds. All will encounter a renewed hope in the One who lists our tears only to wipe them all away.

Editorial Reviews

"I was led to water by a kindred spirit who has known what it is to thirst. With personal honesty and candor, Marva Dawn leads us from loneliness to real intimacy with God and believers."
"Marva Dawn has done a beautiful job making the Psalms come alive, with all their honesty about pain, their expression of so many different emotions, and their encouragement to trust and hope in God. Marva Dawn's personal stories and careful study of the rich language of the Psalms will speak to many readers."
"Any serious engagement with the Psalms must be passionate and devout. Marva Dawn's personal encounter is both, and therefore fruit for the heart. Heartily recommended to feed all God's people."
"For decades now Marva Dawn's life has been shaped by the Psalms; as she writes out her Psalm-shaped experiences in prayer, we realize freshly and personally what a vigorous and reality-tested world of prayer the Psalms provide us."
