Contributed by Rob Forbes.. Thank you!

———————————–

In the closing verses of the Bible we are very clearly WARNED not to “ADD TO”, nor to “TAKE FROM” any words contained therein. Rev 22:18 – 19.

My intention in this chat today is most certainly not to cross that line,but to render Psalm 23 as a prayer of thanks giving to God which to God’s glory and honor and recognition – no more ,no less.

THANKS GIVING PRAYER

THANK YOU LORD….that you ARE my shepherd,and that I shall lack nothing.

THANK YOU LORD ….. that you make me lie down in green pastures, and that you lead me beside still waters.

THANK YOU LORD….that you restore my soul and guide me in paths of righteousness for your name’s sake.

THANK YOU LORD… that even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death…that I will fear no evil, for you are with me;… thank you, that your rod and your staff comfort me.

THANK YOU LORD…that you prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.Thank you,that you anoint my head with oil, and that “indeed” my cup overflows.

THANK YOU…. for “the assurance that” surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and “for the certain promise” that I SHALL DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD FOREVER.

Amen!! “so be it”….”I accept…with thanks giving and with joy.”

A prayer of David in which we can all share and and draw great strength.

Seeya! and God bless.
