23rd Psalm  

Rev. Harbison


These familiar words by the Psalmist are our comfort in times of stress. Every funeral that I have participated in has used these words in some way, shape, or form. The 23rd Psalm is our standard funeral liturgy.

It's much more than that though. This psalm should remind us that when life is tough God is with us. It should let us know intimately about how God gives us comfort and peace. The 23rd Psalm is not a psalm for the dead but a psalm for the living, one that reminds us that God wants us to live the life abundant, as promised in Jesus Christ. The psalm doesn't end in death, but a reminder that God is with us every day of our lives and will be with us our whole life long.
Let's remember the 23rd Psalm not only in times of mourning but in times of peril and times of abundance. The 23rd Psalm is for all the days of our lives. May we use it to celebrate the grace that God grants us all.

A Closing Prayer    

Set us free, O God,
  from our many sins and
  failures, that we might
  feel as though a burden has been lifted
  and we're breathing free again
Bless all the ways in which you
  shape our attitudes and lives.
Visit us with goodness and
Give us eyes to see that goodness.
Lead us and help us to follow you. Amen.                        by Robert D. Young from Let Us Pray
