Psalm 23

1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.

2     He makes me lie down in green pastures,

he leads me beside quiet waters,

3     he refreshes my soul.

He guides me along the right paths

    for his name’s sake.

4 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.

5 You prepare a table before me

    in the presence of my enemies.

You anoint my head with oil;

    my cup overflows.

6 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.

Pray This Week

Jesus' way of thinking often seems upside down to the way we normally think. Where we tend to think of making the greatest impact for the largest number of people, Jesus calls our attention to the one - one lost sheep, one lost coin, one lost son. This week, ask God to direct your focus to who might be "the one" in your life.
