O God our shepherd, You know Your sheep by name and lead us to safety through the valleys of death. Guide us that we may walk in certainty and security to the reconciling and joyous feast You have prepared.

We give You thanks for the actual shepherds, ranchers and farmers in our Nation. Help them continue to steward the gifts You have given them and our Nation. Where we have leadership and authority in our families, schools, communities and Nation, give us courage to protect the vulnerable, compassion to heal the injured, and wisdom to lead them to green pastures.
