Psalm 23

Today, June 15, 2007, is the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. In Catholic masses today, the readings will mostly focus on the Good Shepherd who always takes care of us.

One of my favorite Bible verses or prayers is Psalm 23. In this world filled with confusion and disappointments, there remains much to be thankful for:

“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
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 path of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I 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 anointest 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.
