The Name of Jesus for this week with Ann Spangler at

Hope you will join us each Friday(or anytime during that weekend)sharing from what we read or would like to share about the Name of Jesus for that week.

You may go HERE to find out more and follow along daily at Crosswalk. com with the devotional of Ann Spangler, "Praying the Names of Jesus"

The Name
One of the most tender images of Jesus is one he supplied when referring to himself as the Good Shepherd. This name reminds us both of our own vulnerability and Jesus’ watchful, protecting care. It evokes a sense of belonging, intimacy, and trust, revealing the Good Shepherd as the One who lays down his life for his sheep. When you pray to the Good Shepherd, you are admitting your need for his care and your confidence in his ability to watch over and protect you.
Key Scripture
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. John 10:11

Lord, I belong to you and no one else. Thank you for watching over and protecting me as a shepherd cares for his sheep. Help me to listen for your voice, confident that even if I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, you will be there with your rod and your staff to comfort me.

This is one of my favorite names for the Lord...a few days before he died, my precious granddaddy told us...he had seen the Good Shepherd...and that everything would be okay....

Ah!! You know that Good Shepherd is one of my very most favorite and called upon names of Jesus!!

In fact, I have posted here several times about this very thing.

I suppose I'll go back and reread what I have written previously--go back and refresh my mind.

I WILL be back over the weekend to share my thoughts and feelings on this.
