PRAYER 18: Yahweh is my shepherd, I lack nothing. In grassy meadows he lets me lie. By tranquil streams he leads me to restore my spirit
David as a little shepherd boy trusted in God to care for his sheep and protected his flock from wild animals. He bravely fought with lions and bears and delivered the sheep from the predator’s mouth. In this psalm David expresses his confidence in YAHWEH his God and Shepherd who provides him with protection, care, food and peace.
Let us also put our trust in God our Father and Shepherd who takes care of all our needs.
(Psalms 23:1- NJB – King David)
