Praying the Psalms- Psalm 84

Jenny is on a journey of praying her way through the Psalms.  I was fortunate enough to join at the start.  Each weekend, we 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.

"Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
   who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.
As they pass through the Valley of Baca,
   they make it a place of springs;
   the autumn rains also cover it with pools.
They go from strength to strength,
   till each appears before God in Zion.
 Hear my prayer, O LORD God Almighty;
   listen to me, O God of Jacob."  Psalm 84: 5-8
Our school community has been shocked and devastated by the sudden and unexpected loss of a husband and father.  With mind and heart reeling, I am begging God to give strength to my friend as she endures this unspeakable grief and seeks to help her young boys navigate it as well.  They have all endured so much as it is.  I am fighting against the "why, God?" and trusting Him and His plan.  I am praying for her relationship with Him that was growing through the weekly women's Bible study she and I attended together all last year.  Asking him to strengthen our community to rally around this family.  Will you join me in praying for this family?

"Hear my prayer, O LORD God Almighty;
   listen to me, O God of Jacob."
