The Good Shepherd


Do you have a prodigal loved one?  I pray you will find comfort in this prayer based on Psalm 23. 


As you, pray this prayer, picture each scene in your mind:

The L-rd is ________'s tender, loving, caring shepherd ; 

The L-RD is providing what _______ needs and is with _______ even though ______ has strayed on to a dangerous path away from the sheepfold.
 
He will lead ________ to lie down in green pastures: He will lead ______ to still waters and restore ______'s soul.

He will  lead _______ to the paths of righteousness for His Name's sake.

Yes, even though ______is walking through the valley of the shadow of death right now, I will not give in to fear: because  The L-rd is with _______; 

The L-rd's  rod and His staff  (Holy Word and Spirit) are guiding _______ to His path of righteousness.

 The L-rd prepares a table (is bringing good out of what the evil one is trying to do) , and  ______ is learning lessons that will anoint _______'s head with oil and cause _______'s  cup to run over with blessings.

Surely goodness and mercy  follow _______ all the days of  his/her life: and ________ will dwell in the house of the L-rd for ever.
