THE 2nd WEEK IN LENT
Beginning Sunday, March 12, 2017
PRAY Almighty God, only you have the power to work in us. Protect our bodies and our minds. Help us to do things and think things that help us step closer and closer to you. Amen.
READ “God is my shepherd. He leads me in the right direction. And even if I have to walk in a dark place, I am not scared. I know nothing will hurt me if I walk with God!”2 (Psalm 23)
My Shepherd will supply my need
Jehov – ah is His name:
In pastures fresh He makes me feel,
Beside the living stream.
He brings my wandr’ing spirit back,
When I forsake His ways;
And leads me for His mercy’s sake,
In paths of truth and grace.
When I walk through the shades of death
Thy presence is my stay;
One word of Thy supporting breath
Drives all my fears away.
Thy hand, in sight of all my foes,
Doth still my table spread;
My cup with blessings overflows,
Thine oil anoints my head.
The sure provisions of my God
Attend me all my days;
O may Thy house be my abode,
And all my work be praise.
There would I find a settled rest,
While others go and come;
No more a stranger, nor a guest,
But like a child at home.
DO Trace around your hand. Write the word “shepherd” in the palm. On each finger, write the name of a different person you want God to shepherd. Doodle and color each finger as you pray.
