The Psalms are beautiful works of poetry in the Bible, teaching us how to pray. Their words can hold power for us as parents as we meditate on them, and many are easy enough for even young toddlers to commit to memory which will be a tool for the long life ahead of them. Here are a few simple verses that are fun and simple to play through.
