Praying the Psalms- Psalm 89

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.

Psalm 89
"Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne;
   love and faithfulness go before you.
 Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you,
   who walk in the light of your presence, O LORD."  Psalm 89:14-15
There is One who does not change.  When our circumstances change.  When it feels like the rug has been pulled out from under us.  When we suffer (or watch loved ones suffer) under tremendous stress or pain.  There is One who does not change.

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.  Love and faithfulness go before Him.  He who has started a good work will bring it to completion.

Those who have learned to acclaim this One are blessed.  No one is born with a heart for God.  We must learn to praise Him- in times of rejoicing and in times of sorrow.  

Lord, I am watching loved ones learn how to acclaim You in times of suffering.  I am praying for them as they learn to praise You in the midst of confusion and debilitating stress.  I am thankful that in the midst of our suffering and confusion and stress, You never change.  You remain righteous and just and loving and faithful.  And ready to bless us and strengthen us as we learn to love You through our pain.  Strengthen my loved ones who are reaching through the dark, through their pain for Your hand.  In Jesus' name, amen.
