Psalm 131

"Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.
 Let Israel hope in the Lord from henceforth and for ever."

Psalm 130

"Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Lord.
Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.
 If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?
 But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.
 I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning.
 Let Israel hope in the Lord: for with the Lord there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.
And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities."

Love....

"Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity."
1 Corinthians 13

Psalm 129

"Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now say:
Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me.
The plowers plowed upon my back: they made long their furrows.
 The Lord is righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.
 Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.
 Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which withereth afore it groweth up:
 Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand; nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom.
 Neither do they which go by say, The blessing of the Lord be upon you: we bless you in the name of the Lord."

"A prayer for women drawing near the time of Child-bearing.....

Source: google.com via Stefanie on Pinterest
" "Most merciful Father...Be merciful to this thy servant; be near her with thy present help, in the needful time of trouble; and though in travail she hath sorrow, give her strength to bring forth. Being delivered, let her remember no more the anguish, for joy that a child is born into the world. Bless her in the fruit of her body; and being safely delivered, let her return thee hearty thanks, and devote it and the rest of her life to thy service, through Jesus Christ our Saviour. Amen."

Psalm 128

"Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways.
 For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
 Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.
 Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord.
 The Lord shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.
 Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, and peace upon Israel."

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
