Psalm 23 – Praying the Psalms Project

The timeless, so often quoted Twenty-Third Psalm.  If you have been to a funeral – you’ve heard it.  Many believers and unbelievers have and will cling to the words of this Psalm in dark and desperate times.

Our God is a God who honors His Word. In the dark valleys of life – He is with us. 

Always Seeing ~ Always Knowing

Always Leaning ~ Always Calling

When our cups are bone dry – He causes them to overflow

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
    he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
    for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,
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 overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
    forever.

Lord, You are my Shepherd.  In You I lack nothing.

When my soul is in turmoil You take me to quiet places.

Alongside green pastures and still waters.

There my soul is refreshed.

You are my guide in my path through this life.

When that path takes me through dark valleys, You are with me.

You comfort me and tend to me. 

You place Your anointing oil upon my life and my cup overflows.

Every day of my life Your goodness and love goes with me. 

I trust in that.

I make my home with You and I will dwell there forever. – Amen
