Psalm 84:1-2

How lovely is the place where you live, O Lord who rules over all! I desperately want to be in the courts of the Lord’s temple. My heart and my entire being shout for joy to the living God.

How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.

How lovely is Your tabernacle, O Lord of hosts! My soul longs, yes, even faints For the courts of the Lord; My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.

How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of Heaven’s Armies. I long, yes, I faint with longing to enter the courts of the Lord. With my whole being, body and soul, I will shout joyfully to the living God.

How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts!  My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.


Lord God, please create in me a heart that longs for You always. Help us to seek You every day in the details and circumstances of our everyday lives! Reveal Yourself God, and draw us close to You. Bring about repentance and restoration; heal our hearts and minds from the damage that constantly barrages us. May we always remember Your unfailing love and return to You: the only One worthy to be our first love.
