A PRAYER OF LIFE!
For years, whenever I would go to a funeral…I would hear the 23rd Psalm. I thought it was a Psalm about death. That’s tradition. Nobody understood it, nobody tried, nobody had revelation on it. Everyone did it because everybody else did it.
But if you “really” take a look at it…you’ll hear God speaking to you reassuring you. Some years ago, when awaiting brain surgery; I had to go inside an MRI capsule; I didn’t want to be there. I found myself praying and the words that I prayed were the 23rd Psalm. That calmed me down. It clearly Blessed me! I pray that you’ll remember to use it in your time of need.
The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want. (lack)
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’ sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou art with me;
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.
