Shepherd me

A prayer for nonviolence

Gentle companion, shepherd me today, beyond my fears and wants. Make me let go and rest in the green pasture of your grace. Lead me along still waters. Breathe life into my soul. Lead me in the path of loving kindness for the sake of your delight for the world.

Even in my darkest valleys, shadowed by death, in my fear of evil, you will be with me; your presence and guidance are my only security.

Bring me to the table you set with my enemies. Drench me in your gentleness. May I overflow with your grace. May kindness and mercy be with me all this day; may I live in your eternal presence each moment. Amen.

Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve ______________________ Copyright © Steve Garnaas-Holmes Unfolding Light
