How to pray when you are angry with God

How to pray when you are angry with God

The Rev. Deacon Ian Punnett of Minneapolis recently discussed his new book, How to Pray when You Are Pissed at God: Or Anyone Else for that Matter with A. J. Jacobs of Esquire, author of The Year of Living Biblically. Here is a snippet of their excellent conversation.

ESQ: I like your section about how many of the biblical characters were angry at God, so this type of prayer has a long tradition. Who was the angriest of them all?

ESQ: Can you give us a taste of what he wanted to happen to his enemy?

ESQ: That’s some serious anger.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
