Prayer, day 1373- Being Better Sheep

The Good Shepherd, writer unknown.

O Lord, You are our shepherd; help us to be better sheep.
When You give us green pastures, help us to be grateful and not refuse to eat.
When You lead us beside still waters, help us quiet our souls and be refreshed.
When our cups run over, help us not to obsess about the mess but shout for joy at the abundance you give us always.
When You lead us to right pathways, help us not to be hardheaded and go astray.
When we are in the darkest valley, help us to remember that You are ALWAYS with us.

Help us to stop bleating long enough to hear Your voice calling us to You.

May we remember that your goodness and mercy follow all of us all the days of our lives.


Amen.
