Sunday Prayer 43

Good Shepherd of the sheep,
come shepherd us.
We are tossed about like ships
upon the waves;
the cares and fears of life
surround us.
Speak peace as only You can.

Voices rise and fall, making promises
that none can keep;
words of anger and fear
fill our ears.
Speak truth as only You can.

Our wounds stink and fester
no matter our best efforts;
the short-term healing
cannot stop our infections.
Heal life as only You can.

Good Shepherd of the sheep,
come shepherd us.
We worship and bow down before You,
for You are Our God
and we are the people of Your pasture.
