Lenten Devotional for March 4

Knowing God’s Care

devoShepherd

Psalm 28:6-9

Save your people, God!
Bless your possession!
Shepherd them and carry them for all time!
—Psalm 28:9

Reflect:

Psalm 23 – A psalm of David

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
—King James version

Pray:

O Christ, our shepherd, guide me through each day. Keep me from straying from the path you set before me. Amen.

Respond:

Read Psalm 23 several times. Try memorizing it this week maybe in a different translation.
