My Lord, as I abide in You, truly it is well with my soul. Your Word is my nourishment in truth. Your presence is my solace in adversity. Your counsel is my wisdom in the midst of confusion. Your love is the source of my strength when I am weak from condemnation. Jesus, my good shepherd, there is no need or want that goes unnoticed by You. The still waters You provide are enough. From the beginning of my sojourning to the end of my story, You are there to guide my steps. From the shadows of darkness to the dawning of a glorious day, Your Spirit beckons me to follow You. Let my soul be housed in Your righteousness. Let my heart be sheltered by Your purity. I find delight in Your heavenly inheritance. May gratitude fuel a life of responsive love toward my Savior. Under the majesty of the Word given in Psalm 23:1-3 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I bow in humble and adoring prayer.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for His Name’s sake.
Psalm 23:1-3, ESV
