Psalm 22 gives us an example of miserable worship. Not worship that is miserable, but a miserable, suffering, afflicted man continuing to worship God in spite of his circumstances. David shows us that God accepts worship that comes from broken hearts, not just worship that comes from happy, successful, or contented people. Sometimes we are tempted to believe that if we took our misery to church, God would shut the door in our face, or we might bring God and His people down, but David bears witness that the opposite is true: verse 26 tells us that the afflicted shall eat and be satisfied. God welcomes the miserable and afflicted, and lifts them up through worship. So come, miserable saints, and worship the Lord.
