As each morning the shepherd waters his flock, Lord, I want to lead these sheep to You, the source of life, so that in You they may have the water of life today.

As each morning the shepherd arises and goes toward the mountain, so, Lord, each morning on my knees, I want to arise and lead my village toward your High Places, that it may live this day close to You.

– Michel Bouttier, Prayers for My Village
