Prayer to The Lord Our Shepherd | Prayer for the Church

AUTHOR: Holy Scripture

Prepare yourself for worship and the preaching of God’s word.

Read: Psalm 23

Focus: After spending the last week meditating on Scripture that reveals the character of God, let us pray in response to The Lord Our Shepherd. Take a moment to pray for yourself, others at your campus, your pastor, and all campuses of Christ Community.

Pray: You are invited to pray this written prayer, or write your own prayer.

Lord, your word tells us that you are our Shepherd.
We are grateful to be part of your flock.
Because we are prone to wander astray, we need you to seek and save us when we are lost.
We are tired and restless, and we need you to give us rest.
We are weary from our journeyings through this world, and we need cool shade and green pastures.
We are hungry and thirsty, and we need you to feed us and lead us beside still, cool, refreshing waters.
We are vulnerable in more ways than we know, and we need your protection, defense, and guidance.
Truly Jesus, our Good Shepherd has laid down His life for us, His sheep.
No better shepherd could we have.
May we hear His voice and follow Him.

Praying Through God’s Word | 04

Prayer tills the soil of the soul to receive the word of God. Take time today resting, delighting and listening to God in prayer. Take 10 minutes today to pray for God to speak afresh through His word, and that you would have “ears to hear and eyes to see” His truth and direction.
