The Lord Is My Shepherd
An Inspirational Prayer Book Of Psalm 23 With Love Letters From Jesus
by Sharon L. Welsh

LIFE TAKES TWISTS AND TURNS, and these surprises can leave anyone feeling powerless and alone. Children are not immune to life experiences and emotions, and the promises found in Psalm 23 continue to bring strength and comfort to young and old. The Lord is My Shepherd is a paraphrase of the beloved Psalm 23 written as a devotional book for children and families who may be going through difficult times and need a source of hope, inspiration, and comfort. Each verse is broken down into individual phrases with: • a love letter from Jesus, • a question to think about, • a rhyming prayer, and • a meaningful Bible verse. The heartfelt letters from Jesus guide, encourage, and teach children about His promises, His everlasting love, His longing to spend time with each of his children, and how to honour Him. Together, each verse, letter, and meaningful rhyming prayer, along with beautiful illustrations, speak directly to the heart and create a concrete opportunity for children to hear Jesus speak to them, and in return, they can talk to Him. The Lord is My Shepherd is a powerful reminder that Jesus walks alongside us every step of the way of our life journey, providing, guiding, and protecting. He restores our strength and prepares us to face our fears. His goodness and unconditional love are everlasting. We do not have to worry or be afraid because we can rest in Him.
