Psalm 131 is a prayer of a person at rest with God, with his world, with himself.  Not a bad place to begin the new year and decade. 

A person at rest prays with …

A humble heart.

“O LORD, my heart is not lifted up; my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things to great and too marvelous for me.” (v.1)

A hushed soul.

“But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.” (2)

A hopeful resolve.

“O Israel, hope in the LORD from this time forth and forevermore.” (3)
