Prayer for Psalm 23:4

“Even when I go through the darkest valley, I fear no danger, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff-they comfort me.”

Thank You that You are the Great Shepherd of the sheep and You are my Good Shepherd in Whom I trust. Keep me I pray from all dangers that stalk my path and may I find true comfort and protection, provision and peace in You, to my life's end - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

Source: Verse of the day for Psalm 23:4

To Walk Close to Thee

O God, our Father, help us to see ourselves as children who seek guidance; children who walk in the midst of many dangers.

Help us not to be afraid so long as we walk close to Thee. Thy ways, O God are higher than our ways and often we do not understand. Teach us, O God, that we do not have to understand but to trust and Thou wilt see us through every difficulty in life.

When Thou art near, I am not afraid, I want to “draw nigh to God” in the assurance that when I do, He will “draw nigh unto me,”

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.

For A Dying Christian Friend in a Hospice

Loving Lord, I just want to lift up my dear friend to You, who has been such a comfort and strength to me for so many years – but who has at last been admitted to a hospice where she is to pass her final few weeks of life in dignity and respect - as her life drains from her.. Lord I know that I am going to miss her so much…

Be with her Lord, every moment of the day and night. Thank You Father that she is to be looked after in such a caring and understanding environment. Be with the staff who are to attend her as her life flows from her and Lord –I pray that she would be very aware of Your very presence with her, every moment of the day.

Lord I know that she is ready and longing to meet You face to face and I ask that You would keep her free from the pain and suffering that so often stalks the advancement of death – But praise God that the grave has lost its terrible sting and death has lost its victory, through the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.. Praise Your holy name…

Lord I know that I am going to miss my dear friend – but my sadness has such a wonderful tinge of hope and joy, for I know that soon we will all be together in Your company – where we will be free from all sickness and sadness – and You will wipe away every tear from our eyes. Thank You Lord in Jesus name…

Amen
