You Are With Me

A prayer from Psalm 23

Father, you are my provider and protector;
besides you there is nothing I need.

Your creation and your Word remind me –you are with me.
You will daily restore my soul.

You will lead me in paths of righteousness for your own glory.
You will slow my pace to be in step with you.
Even though the journey seems long and overwhelming I will fear nothing.
Not evil, not failure, not disappointment, nor pains -for you are with me.
You prepare a table before me although I come to you with nothing but unrest.
In the presence of those who disbelieve, you are generous with me.
My cup overflows - for you are with me.
Surely your steadfast love will follow me
and your patient hand will guide me all the days of my life;
I will joyfully dwell with you forever.
