psalm 23

Psalm 23 takes on a different light when you pray it over the lives of refugees, of those who are stuck in war zones and of those who are in physical persecution, pain and suffering.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

    He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters. 

    He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
forever.

Indeed, the Lord Himself will be their shepherd, He will be the one that personally watches over them, care for them. The Lord himself will personally comfort and even though they walk through the valley of the shadow of death, the Lord himself will prepare a banquet for them in the presence of enemies. In the presence of enemies, the Lord Himself will see to it that His soldiers/sheeps are well-fed in peace even in the craziest of circumstances.
