Paper: 13 X 18.4
- Praying through every verse of psalm 23
- Leading readers to meditate and pray through every sentence of Psalm 23
When I began praying this passage, I found the Shepherd made Himself real to me. The Lord came to me as I prayed Psalm 23 and God touched my life with the power of its words. As I began daily praying Psalm 23, I found something else happening: I touched God.
If that is what you want?to touch God?take a journey with me through Psalm 23. We will travel through this much-traveled psalm by a new way?a path you have never walked?in which you will pray through the 23rd Psalm. As you do, something will happen to you that happened to me: You will touch God. But more importantly, God will touch you.
