Narrow Road 

I’ve fallen away from the Lord and I’m asking for the Brothers and Sisters to keep me in prayer. I feel so far off.. But when I listen to this song, I just need the Lord so much right now. I haven't felt so empty.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want, He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside still waters, He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the, Paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of, The shadow of death, I will fear no evil:, For thou art with me; thy rod and, Thy staff comfort me, Thou preparest a table before me in the, Presence of my enemies: thou anointest, My head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me, All the days of my life: and I will, Dwell in house of the Lord forever.
