Psalm for Prayer - November 2, 2015

Psalm 127

 [1] Unless the LORD builds the house,
  those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the LORD watches over the city,
  the watchman stays awake in vain.
[2] It is in vain that you rise up early
  and go late to rest,
eating the bread of anxious toil;
  for he gives to his beloved sleep.

 [3] Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
  the fruit of the womb a reward.
[4] Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
  are the children of one's youth.
[5] Blessed is the man
  who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
  when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.

(Psalm 127 ESV)
