Praying the psalms with gratitude

Friday June 30, 2017

Psalm 23
 The Lord is my shepherd.
    I lack nothing.
He lets me rest in grassy meadows;
    he leads me to restful waters;
        he keeps me alive.
He guides me in proper paths
    for the sake of his good name.
Even when I walk through the darkest valley,
    I fear no danger because you are with me.
Your rod and your staff—
    they protect me.
You set a table for me
    right in front of my enemies.
You bathe my head in oil;
    my cup is so full it spills over!
Yes, goodness and faithful love
    will pursue me all the days of my life,
    and I will live in the Lord’s house
    as long as I live.


Pray a prayer of gratitude today and allow the psalm to be your guide.  Take time to think about your day, what are you grateful for?  Write down all of these moments as way to capture your gratitude.   Offer up prayers of gratitude throughout your day.
