Praying Through: Psalm 23:1a The Lord Is My Shepherd

The Psalm

Psalm 23:1a (CSB) The LORD is my shepherd

The Prayer

You are my Good Shepherd. You fled the ninety-nine in order to come rescue me, when I could not possibly rescue myself. You saved me from certain damnation, you’ve rescued me from the slaughter. You’ve taken all of my sin, and you let the wrath of Father fall upon your heart You bled out for me, so that I might live forever. Lord, keep me in your care, I pray that you keep good shepherds to care and feed me. none that will run away at the first sight of danger none that will be swayed to and fro by every wind of doctrine but stay the course because you are their strength and resolve. I praise your holy name ever.
