Praying the Psalms- Psalm 43

Jenny has begun a journey of praying her way through the Psalms that I have decided to join. Each weekend, we will pray through one psalm and post our prayer and/or meditations on that psalm as the Lord leads. Check out her journey and join us in Praying the Psalms.
"You are God my stronghold.
   Why have you rejected me?
Why must I go about mourning,
   oppressed by the enemy?"  Psalm 43: 2
This has been my lament as of late, too.  I am learning to be honest with Him.
"Send me your light and your faithful care,
   let them lead me;
let them bring me to your holy mountain,
   to the place where you dwell."  Psalm 43: 3
 And this my prayer in this season.
"Then I will go to the altar of God,
   to God, my joy and my delight.
I will praise you with the lyre,
   O God, my God.

Why, my soul, are you downcast?
   Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
   for I will yet praise him,
   my Savior and my God."  Psalm 43: 4-5
Any my solution, the only solution, really.  Praise and hope!

(I'm catching up from last week when I was not able to post for Praying the Psalms :)
