Psalm 23

Dear God,

You are my shepherd; and you give me everything I need.

You take me to where the grass grows green and the water is quiet and cool and clear.

You take me on the right paths and I can rest in you.

Even if I go through the deepest darkness, I will not be afraid, because you are with me.

You are strong and loving. You care for me and protect me.Your goodness and love will be with me all my life. And your house will be my home now and forever more. Amen.
