The Shepherd and His Sheep - Part 14

Reflections on Psalm 23 and God the shepherd.
Posted April 21, 2013

The Lord is my Shepherd. His rod and staff protect me.

When the enemies of God go after His sheep, He protects us. No weapon fashioned against us will stand.

Lord, when people attempt to cause a scandal or speak lies about us, protect us. You are our Shepherd, protect the lambs.

Help all of the Church to protect the lambs. Wolves in sheep’s clothes come in among us and prey on the weak.

Help the Church to keep the practice of using good policies and procedures to keep the lambs safe.

We all are like sheep who have gone astray each following our own ways at times. We are sinners saved by grace helping other sinners get saved.

Saints are sinners saved by grace not self-righteous sinners. Protect the lambs. Keep them safe from the predators within the sheepfold.

By the shed blood of the Lamb of God our enemies have been defeated.

Help the sheep and shepherds to follow the good policies and procedures that keep the lambs safe. Your rod and staff protect us. You are Lord, our Great Shepherd.

(Isaiah 54:13-17, Isaiah 53, Matthew 18:1-1)
