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 I look up to the mountains—Psalm 121 (NLT)
does my help come from there?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
who made heaven and earth!
3 He will not let you stumble;
the one who watches over you will not slumber.
4 Indeed, he who watches over Israel
never slumbers or sleeps.
5 The LORD himself watches over you!
The LORD stands beside you as your protective shade.
6 The sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon at night.
7 The LORD keeps you from all harm
and watches over your life.
8 The LORD keeps watch over you as you come and go,
both now and forever.
