Psalm 86
I am Poor & Needy

Psalms of disorientation (or laments) recognize that we live in a ‘hard hat world’. Challenges and suffering are not unknown in our day to day experience. Nevertheless, God travels with us and does not leave us alone amidst our trials. The poet’s invitation in Psalm 86 is to keep looking to God while we are in the hurricane’s eye and know that he will guide our paths and provide for our needs while the breakers crash all around us.
