Prayer to the Lord, Our Shepherd

Posted by Br Nicholas Hutchinson on 21 October 2015
Prayer to the Lord, Our Shepherd
Lord, you are like a shepherd to me,
and so I have all that I need.

You give me rest
in meadows of green grass,
and you lead me to water
where I gain new life and strength.
You guide me
along the way that is best for me.

Even when I walk in darkness
and everything around seems like death,
you are there, walking with me,
and the promise
of your love and faithfulness
helps to conquer my fear.

In the sight of those who do me down,
you invite me
to sit at table with you.
There you offer me
even more than I need,
and you remind me
that I am significant and special.

You call me to goodness and kindness
every day of my life,
and your house will be my home
my whole life long.

(Except from 'Praying Each Day of the Year' Brother Nicholas Hutchinson FSC.)

Live Jesus in our Hearts!
