Psalm 23

Megan Wheeler's prayer in Pale Rider after a group of gunmen killed her dog:

"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want."
But I do want.

"He leadeth me beside still waters. He restoreth my soul."
But they killed my dog.

"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I shall
fear no evil--"
But I am afraid.

"--for thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me."
But we need a miracle.

"Thy loving kindness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life."
If you exist.

"And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever."
But I'd like to get more out of this life first.

If you don't help us we're all going to die.
Please?
Just one miracle?

Amen.
