Good morning, Father!
Thank you for the awesome time of fellowship and growth, both last night and again this morning. Thank you for working on each of us, growing us in accordance with your will and purpose. Please be especially close to my dear friend in New York today, give her an extra special something from your heart, Lord — something that only you and she can understand and appreciate. 😀 Amen!
Psalm 23 ERV
A song of David. The LORD is my shepherd. I will always have everything I need.
He gives me green pastures to lie in. He leads me by calm pools of water.
He restores my strength. He leads me on right paths to show that he is good.
Even if I walk through a valley as dark as the grave, I will not be afraid of any danger, because you are with me. Your rod and staff comfort me.
You prepared a meal for me in front of my enemies. You welcomed me as an honored guest. My cup is full and spilling over.
Your goodness and mercy will be with me all my life, and I will live in the LORD’S house a long, long time.
Lord, I thank you for all the mercy that has been shown to us. Please let it be ENOUGH, and provide for our needs. Please continue to protect us, nurturing and chastising us and pruning away things that we might THINK we need, but that only stand in the way of your will and purpose. Help us, Shepherd, to be wise enough to choose YOUR pastures, and not the ones that are poisoned with the brooks of doubt and despair — those lonely, painful places that the enemy would have us inhabit. Help us choose you, Lord God. Amen.
