Psalm 23 The Message

A David Psalm

  God, my shepherd! I don’t need a thing.
  You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
    you find me quiet pools to drink from.
  True to your word,
    you let me catch my breath
    and send me in the right direction.

  Even when the way goes through
    Death Valley,
  I’m not afraid
    when you walk at my side.
  Your trusty shepherd’s crook
    makes me feel secure.

  You serve me a six-course dinner
    right in front of my enemies.
  You revive my drooping head;
    my cup brims with blessing.

  Your beauty and love chase after me
    every day of my life.
  I’m back home in the house of God
    for the rest of my life.


Midday Prayer

Eternal God, source of everlasting light,
send forth your truth into our hearts,
and bring us into your presence with joy and gladness
in the name of Jesus Christ the Lord.


John 6:36-40

But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”


1 Corinthians 1:7-8 NIV

Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
