The Psalms allow us to connect with the prayers, laments, praises, and worship of Jesus Followers across time and space. These were the regular prayers Jesus would have prayed Himself while he was on earth! We pray you are blessed as you spend time in the Psalms.
1 LORD, my heart is not proud,Psalm 131 (NLT)
my eyes are not haughty.
I don’t concern myself with matters too great
or too awesome for me to grasp.
2 Instead, I have calmed and quieted myself,
like a weaned child who no longer cries for its mother’s milk.
Yes, like a weaned child is my soul within me.
3 O Israel, put your hope in the LORD—
now and always.
