Psalm 23
“It is especially necessary that
listening to the word of God should
become a life-giving encounter, in the
ancient and ever valid tradition of
lectio divina, which draws from the
biblical text the living Word which
questions, directs and shapes our
lives.”
Pope John Paul II
Novo Millennio Ineunte,39

* Psalm 23 (NIV)
* 1The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in
want.
* 2He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
* 3he restores my soul. He guides me in
paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
* 4Even 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.
* 5You prepare a table before me in the
presence of my enemies. You anoint my
head with oil; my cup overflows.
* 6Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life, and I will dwell in
the house of the LORD forever.

*Conflict
*“Prayer is engaging
God…The engagement,
at least in its initial
stages, is more like a
quarrel that a greeting,
more like a wrestling
match than a warm
embrace.”
Eugene Peterson “Eat This
Book”
*
*Comfort
*“God’s word is personal
address, inviting,
commanding, challenging,
rebuking, judging,
comforting, directing. But
not forcing. Not coercing.
We are given space and
freedom to answer, to
enter into the
conversation.”

Contemplation
*“….we cannot come to the
fullness of contemplation of
the Lord’s face by our own
efforts alone, but by allowing
grace to take us by the hand.”
Pope John Paul II, Nuevo Millennio
Nuente, 20
*“Contemplatio…is not
*
something we self-consciously
do; it happens, it is a gift, it is
something to which we are
receptive and obedient…it is
“infused.”
Eugene Peterson “Eat This Book”
* Psalm 23 (NIV)
* 1The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be
*
in want.
* 2He makes me lie down in green
pastures, he leads me beside quiet
waters,
* 3he restores my soul. He guides me in
paths of righteousness for his name’s
sake.

Psalm 23 (Wolthuis paraphrase)
* God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, is my guide.
* I want nothing else.
* He orders my hours so I can rest.
* He leads me to the well of living water.
* He focuses my life on the essential.
* He directs me in productive ways
* So that his purposes are clear.
* Even when I crawl through the tunnel of dark
depression,
* I will not fear destruction,
* For you are with me;
* Your strong hands and gentle nudges,
* They comfort me.
* You host a banquet in my honor,
* Before those who would dishonor me.
* You shower me with gifts.
* You continue to pour out blessings.
* Surprisingly and certainly,
* Beauty and unfailing love pursue every moment of
my life.
* My home is in God’s presence now and always.

*Savior, like a shepherd lead us,
much we need Thy tender care;
In Thy pleasant pastures feed us,
for our use Thy folds prepare.
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! Thou hast bought us,
Thine we are.
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! Thou hast bought us,
Thine we are.
*We are Thine, Thou dost befriend us, be the guardian of our
way;
Keep Thy flock, from sin defend us, seek us when we go
astray.
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! Hear, O hear us when we
pray.
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! Hear, O hear us when we
pray.
