“O LORD, my heart is not lifted up; my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me. But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me. O Israel, hope in the LORD from this time forth and forevermore.” (Psalms 131:1–3)
Help me to calm and quiet my soul. Help me to seek the still, small voice in the midst of the turmoil around me. Grant me your peace that passes all understanding.
Make me an instrument of your peace, Lord.
