Prayer Ideas: The Good Shepherd

Jesus said: “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me”

John 10:14

Jesus loves each one of us, knowing and calling us by name.

Take a piece of paper, and draw on it a sheep; be as creative as you wish – a cloud with four sticks for legs and a smiley face is perfectly fine! Now take the picture you’ve drawn and write your name on it. Meanwhile, take an envelope (recycle one from post you’ve received before perhaps) – and write “sheepfold” upon it.

  • Thank Jesus that He knows you by name and that He loves you.
  • Hear His voice saying to you: “Don’t be afraid, I have redeemed you. I have called your name. You are mine.” (Isaiah 43:1)
  • When you are ready, put your “sheep” into the safety of the “sheepfold.”
