...looking at laments in the Hebrew Scriptures
... Walter Brueggemann's wonderful categorizing of the psalms as Psalms of orientation (when it feels the way its supposed to be) Disorientation (To use Bono's words 'when hope and history don't rhyme) and re-orientation (when we find a deeper understanding of and trust in God), which has been of great help to me.
... choosing Psalm 5:1-3 as a call to worship (if its helpful here are the slides I used for it
...followed by that wonderful hymn and treasure of our tradition 'Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God almighty'.
I've tried to capture all this by saying in all circumstances we say Holy, Holy, Holy LORD God almighty. We acknowledge your sovereignty and your goodness.
Hopefully I've also picked up something of the fact that people coming to worship find them selves in many different places and give voice to those places. feel free to use any of this that you feel would e helpful.
