Praying Through: Psalm 23:2b He Leads Me Beside Quiet Waters

The Psalm

Psalm 23:2b (CSB) he leads me beside quiet waters.

The Prayer

My Lord

You are the fountain of true life. I am dead without you.

  • It is not that
  • I can find this water on my own. For I am lost
  • and, my soul is dried-up and dead. I have no wisdom,
  • strength,
  • or spirit to find you.

But you, O Lord, rescued me.

You have brought me into your life

  • and in your life alone,
  • I am fully alive. My soul is no longer dried in sin
  • but restored,
  • covered,
  • and filled with your forever grace.

God, please keep me close

  • so that I stay refreshed
  • and satisfied in all of life.
