Psalm 23:1-6, commonly known as The Lord Is My Shepherd prayer, is one of the most cherished and comforting passages in the Bible.

This psalm, attributed to King David, beautifully illustrates God’s guidance, provision, and protection. It speaks to the deep trust and peace that comes from knowing the Lord as our shepherd, who leads us through life’s trials and restores our soul.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures.

He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
