Known And Blessed

Lord,

I’m astounded by your care,

you’ve numbered every hair on my head,

you’ve sewn every stitch of my soul,

every word in my mouth,

movement of my heart,

you already know.

You watch me with care,

my lying down, going out,

my habits, quirks, and ways,

better than I know myself.

You understand and intimately know me.

I can rest,

trusting your guidance and counsel

is perfect for me,

as you hem me in from behind,

and go before me.

Lord, grant me a pure heart,

renew a right spirit within me,

remove anything in me that hinders your love,

please lead me in the way everlasting.

I praise you and thank you,

Lord of my life.

Amen.

My Safe Lead

Lord,

you are my refuge,

my safe harbor,

my enclosed garden,

my green pasture,

you guide me by quiet waters,

along paths of righteousness,

you restore my soul,

I dwell secure for you are my sukka,

your grace abides in me and I in you.

Through the valleys and mountaintops,

to level plateaus,

I will journey with you my Lord,

and be bold and courageous,

because you are my faithful and good Shepherd,

you’re always with me,

you’ll never leave me nor forsake me.

I bless you Lord,

Amen.
