psalm-23One of the most beloved and well known Psalms is Psalm 23. The opening lines which state ‘The Lord is my Shepherd…’ have provided comfort to people of faith for untold generations. It is a very real possibility that these words brought comfort to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Today we pray the Psalms, today we pray Psalm 23.

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Amen.
