Daily Reading and Prayer: Thursday June 25

What a wonderful image Psalm 131 paints – that our souls can be at peace in God, like a child resting on their mother’s knee.

1 My heart is not proud, Lord,
my eyes are not haughty;
I do not concern myself with great matters
or things too wonderful for me.
2 But I have calmed and quieted myself,
I am like a weaned child with its mother;
like a weaned child I am content.
3 Israel, put your hope in the Lord
both now and forevermore.

A song – “Come to the Quiet,” Psalm 131 put to music by Franciscan John Michael Talbot. This song has been a quiet blessing to me for many many years. May it be a prayerful blessing for you as well.
