The writer of Psalm 102 is overwhelmed by afflictions and prays to the Lord for relief (verses 1-11). Then he thinks about nature of the Lord (verses 12-19). Next the writer broadens his focus to others in his community, to prisoners and to those condemned to death. The writer, we his readers, and the rest of humanity now are in that suffering community. The writer looked forward to a time when all of us gather in celebration before the Lord (verses 20-22).
Today we prepare to celebrate Easter 2022. Like the writer did, we see in the distance, beyond this Easter, that same greatest of all celebrations.
