Praying Through: Psalm 23:1b I Have What I Need

The Psalm

Psalm 23:1b (CSB) I have what I need.

The Prayer

My Lord Above,

I thank you for your perfect provision.

You are my Good Father in heaven and because I am your child, you have always provided for me.

When I was younger, I wanted many things but you did not provide them.

But looking back, those things I wanted would have harmed me or cause me to turn away from you.

But what you have always done is gave something even better, which turned out to be actually good.

It is by your hand alone that I have shelter over my head, food in my stomach, water upon my dried tongue.

It is by your strength I am able to stand work seek out accomplishments which is the work you have provided for me to do for your glory.

But more than that, you are my All-in-all because you gave me everything when you gave me yourself in Christ Jesus my Lord.

Since I have your love, your Son, your Spirit, you have given me so much that heaven and earth can give me no more.

I will praise you with every single breath you give me.

And I will love you with all the love you have given me.
