Today, just read the Shepherd’s prayer and let it sink deeply into your heart and mind. Allow it to bring peace that spreads out within you.
The Good Shepherd (Psalm 23)
1 The Lord is my shepherd;
I have what I need.
2 He lets me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside quiet waters.
3 He renews my life;
he leads me along the right paths[a]
for his name’s sake.
4 Even when I go through the darkest valley,[b]
I fear no danger,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff—they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Only goodness and faithful love will pursue me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in[c] the house of the Lord
as long as I live.
