"The Lord is my shepherd; I have everything I need."
(Psalm 23:1, NLT)

Praying ushers us into the holy place where the Shepherd of our heart awaits. As his sheep, we unfold our thoughts, dreams, desires, and concerns. Because he is the Shepherd, he looks and listens and hears--without interruption or condemnation--as we uncloak our fumbling, flawed thoughts.

We reveal our fears. We ask. We are utterly dependent upon him. And so we are--sheep. We entrust our plans, confide shortages, and confess sins. We empty and open and unearth and expose--for this is communion!

Bold and daring and confident in our Shepherd--this is prayer.
