Psalm 23 Prayer

Lord, You are our Shepherd; we shall lack nothing.Prayer Warrior Sheep
You make us lie down in green pastures,
lush and abundant for our needs.
You lead us beside quiet waters
from which we drink, unafraid,
finding a quenching for our thirsts.
You restore our souls–
even by merely Your presence in our lives.
You guide us in paths of righteousness,
directing our steps into that which brings You glory.
Even though we walk through the darkest valley,
in this world beset by the effects of sin,
we fear no evil, for You, our Daddy,
are with us each step of the way.
Your rod of holiness and Your staff of mercy bring comfort to us,
as You discipline us and embrace us with Your unfailing love.
You prepare a feasting table before us
in the presence of the enemies of our faith,
testifying to Your sovereign ability to meet all of our needs.
You anoint our minds with oil of gladness
–a joy inside, daily produced by the peace
of Your Spirit within us . . . abundantly overflowing!
Surely Your goodness and Your love will follow us
all the days of our lives,
and we will make our home in You,
as You dwell within us, forever. Amen.

–adapted from Psalm 23 by Kat Kreations/Kathi Isbell
