Pause for Prayer: SUNDAY 5/8

The Lord is my shepherd; there may be nothing I shall need.  
Contemporary and inexperienced are the meadows the place he provides me repose. 
Close to restful waters he leads me, to revive my drooping spirit. 
He guides me alongside the appropriate path;he’s true to his identify. 
You might be there together with your criminal and your employees; 
with these you give me consolation…
Psalm 23

A spot the place I would like for nothing?
Meadows, contemporary and inexperienced?
Restful waters to elevate my spirits?
Sounds nice — I am there, Lord!

Effectively, truly, it is extra like I wish to get there
    and since on many days I am not there,
I simply would possibly want somebody 
    to steer me on the appropriate path, in the appropriate course –
        somebody to shepherd me…

I would like somebody such as you, Lord, to shepherd me 
    from nagging issues and troubles and fears,
from too many worries and distractions 
    that maintain me from simply that peaceable place inside me
        the place you wait, patiently, 
        look forward to me to quiet down and relaxation
    within the peace that solely you can provide…

Give me grace to search out this place of peace,
the place I typically miss
    as a result of I run to quick or waste my time

    or start to assume that I could make it alone,
        with out your assist, with out you there
            to shepherd me and to information me…

With out your shepherd’s lead – I lose my approach,
with out your shepherd’s criminal – I’m going astray,
with out your shepherd’s voice to name my identify
    I wander in darkish valleys, in confusion and in worry…

However I do know you are by my aspect, Lord,
    at all times displaying me the way in which
    and discovering me after I run off on my own…

Be my shepherd, Lord:
    lead me and information me
    to the meadows of your peace…
