Psalm 127:1 New Living Translation (NLT)

Psalm 127

A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. A psalm of Solomon.

Unless the Lord builds a house,

    the work of the builders is wasted.

Unless the Lord protects a city,

    guarding it with sentries will do no good.

When I do it on my own will or power, it is inspired by man.  When it is directed by God, the blessings and abundance flow!

Lord, just for today, give me the knowledge of your will and the grace, power and mercy to carry it out!  In Jesus’ name, Amen!
