Prayer to the Good Shepherd


In the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
LORD, you are my shepherd;
nothing I shall want.Fresh and green are the pastures
where you give me repose.

Near restful waters you lead me
to revive my drooping spirit.

You guide me along the right path;
you are true to your name.

If I should walk in the valley of darkness
no evil would I fear.

You are there with your crook and your staff;
with these you give me comfort.

You have prepared a banquet for me
in the sight of my foes.

My head you have anointed with oil;
my cup is overflowing.

Surely goodness and kindness shall follow me
all the days of my life.

In the LORD’S own house shall I dwell
for ever and ever.

Good Shepherd of the flock, you tend and feed and protect your chosen people and only ask us to put our trust in your loving care.
As host you entertain us at your welcome table and anoint us with your Holy Spirit.
Make us ever thankful for all your blessings, O Savior of the world, living and reigning with the Father and the Holy Spirit, now and for ever
