Questions for reflection:
- How does Habakkuk change from the beginning of his dialogue with the Lord to his prayer here in chapter 3? What do you think accounts for this change?
- Habakkuk was in awe of God’s previous works in the history of Israel. What works of God have caused you to grow in awe of Him?
- What is our confidence that God hears and answers our prayers for divine mercy?
