A Comparison of Psalm 23 and the Lord’s Prayer

If you have a look at The Psalm Lord’s Prayer (Mathew 6:nine-13) collectively with Psalm 23, you can word a few similarities, in addition to as a minimum one distinction. Psalm 23 is written in the first individual, whilst the Lord’s Prayer is written within the second man or woman. King David became concerned approximately his personal safety and achievement, so he should keep leading Israel to live in team spirit and harmony under God. Jesus is worried that his followers should pray that the WHOLE WORLD might emerge as unified beneath God and be praying ‘Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done.’

Psalm 23 affords a few solutions to the Lord’s Prayer. For instance, The Lord’s Prayer begins “Our Father who art in heaven” and Psalm 23 starts offevolved “The Lord is my Shepherd”, – each of which might be names or titles of God. “I shall no longer be in want” is the confident solution to the request “Give us this present day our each day bread”. Jesus is the Bread of Life, the residing water, the fruit of the Spirit and the dwelling Word of God.

He promised that if we are seeking first the dominion of God (Matthew 6:33) and his righteous way of residing, he might offer all our desires. “He makes me to lie down in inexperienced pastures; he leads me beside the still waters” emphasizes the point. “He restores my soul” – entails our religious condition in addition to our physical health from receiving meals and fresh water. Forgiveness of sins is vital to cleanse us and restore us to religious fitness and heal our relationship with God and our neighbours. We pray “May your name be hallowed in the world as it’s far in heaven” and “Lead us no longer into temptation (or to do things that detract from our purpose and dreams in lifestyles), but supply us from the evil one.”

When we obey and comply with the lead of the Holy Spirit we’re hallowing his name. We also want him to “lead us inside the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake” which will grow in the grace and know-how of Jesus Christ and to reveal forth the fruit of the Spirit.

In Psalm 23 David shares his reviews of receiving God’s help as he says, “Yes, even though I stroll thru the valley of the shadow of death, I will worry no evil, for you are with me, your rod and your personnel they comfort me.”

We pray “Your could be done right here in the world as it’s miles in heaven”, and Psalm 23 answers, “You put together a desk before me within the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil, my cup runs over.” God wishes us to have a part in his will, and pours his love into our hearts by way of the Holy Spirit who empowers us. He needs us to proportion his unconditional respect and love with all other people. Jesus changed into and is a servant-chief and he gave his followers a brand new commandment – that they love each other as he loves them (John 13:34-35). Earlier he had commanded them to like their enemies (Matthew 5:43-forty eight).

In the Lord’s Prayer we pray “Thy nation come on the planet as it’s far in heaven” and say also, “For the kingdom, the power and the respect are yours forever and ever.”
Psalm 23 concludes – “Surely your goodness and mercy will observe (pursue) me all of the days of my existence and I will stay in the house of the Lord forever, Amen.”

David changed into a man after God’s own heart and experienced the many benefits of having a near relationship with God.

In John 14:1-three, – Jesus said, “Don’t permit your coronary heart be anxious. Believe in God. Believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s residence are many homes. If it weren’t so, I might have told you. I am going to put together a place for you. 3 If I go and prepare an area for you, I will come once more, and could get hold of you to myself; that wherein I am, you’ll be there also. 4 Where I go, , and the way.”

We can be confident that Jesus will provide the wherewithal for us to have a respectful and loving relationship with him and with our neighbours, so that we may additionally spend eternity with them in peace and happiness.

In end John three:sixteen-17 says, “For God so loved the arena, that he gave his one and simplest Son, that whoever believes in him need to not perish, however have everlasting existence. 17 For God didn’t ship his Son into the sector to decide the world, but that the sector must be saved thru him.” (World English Bible used throughout)

P.S. I frequently combine the 2 in a prayer which include: Our Father in heaven – Hallowed be your call – you are all effective, all understanding, present everywhere and constantly creating new non secular lifestyles in believers – you created the heavens and the earth as a habitation for the human beings you planned to create (pause and meditate) – May your nation come and your may be achieved in the world and in our lives – Help us to are seeking for first the dominion of God and your righteousness – Give us daily our day by day bread – Thank you that you are our Shepherd – We shall now not be in need – You make us to lie down in inexperienced pastures – You lead us beside nevertheless waters – You restore our souls. You forgive our sins, lead us to repentance and deliver us the gift of the Holy Spirit, which enables us to observe you in harmony and harmony. You lead us in the paths of righteousness in your call’s sake. As we observe and practice your teachings we are given the responsibility to uphold your call and popularity on this secular society. – (pause and meditate) – Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive people who trespass against us – while we stroll thru the valley of the shadow of dying we want fear no evil for you’re with us – you consolation us together with your rod and your team of workers – preserve us from temptation to stray from the direction and the direction you have set us upon – You will take us to the desk you have got set earlier than us inside the presence of our enemies – (optimistically all enemies of Christ will repent and come to be buddies) – You anoint our heads with oil (sanctify and set us apart for a holy reason) – our cup runs over (with correct matters including love, the fruit of the Spirit and preference to comply with Jesus – pause and meditate) – Please deliver us from the evil one – in reality your goodness and mercy will be with us – for yours is the kingdom and the energy and the distinction with no end in sight – and we will dwell in your own home for all time. I pray in Jesus’ holy and righteous name, Amen.
