My daughter has been memorizing Psalm 23 for AWANA. I liked the thought of having this scripture hanging in the house so it is easy for her to reference rather than needing to get her AWANA book every time she wants to work on it. Therefore, I created a colorful Psalm 23 free printable for her, and I thought I would share it here so that you could print it out as well.
Something I have been trying to do is claim scripture in life. Call it “Christian Cognitive Therapy.” The Lord encourages us: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.” – Romans 12:2. The renewing of our mind can happen as we meditate on God’s scriptures. Here’s another helpful passage in regards to meditating on the Word of God: “How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the path of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers.” – Psalm 1:1-3.
As a Christian, I see the value of memorizing scripture and claiming it. My brain has a tendency to want to avoid the struggles, so I need to claim the verse, “Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope…” Romans 5:3-4.
I can sometimes let myself get down and spiral into darkness as I see the pain in this world. To get out of it, I can state, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” – Philippians 4:8. This is a life verse for me, so I have also made it into a printable for you. You can see how I use it in my parenting here.
Selfishness and faith are both a struggle for me, so I need to keep Galatians 2:20 on the tip of my tongue. “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
Psalm 23 is another one of those passages that is fabulous to claim. It contains so many of God’s promises in regards to His presence and comfort for you. I hope having a free printable to hang will help you also memorize this powerful text.

One of my readers asked for a King James version, so I decided to make one of those also, which you can find here.
I love this printable! However, I just noticed a small typo when I was putting this into a frame for our entryway. The print should read in the third line “He leads me beside..”
I can’t figure out a way to correct the pdf. Is there any way you could possibly repost a corrected one? I really do love it!
Oh my. How incredibly embarrassing. Thank you for graciously letting me know. It is all fixed in the link, but here it is for your convenience: https://meaningfulmama.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/The-LORD-is-my-Shepherd-Printable-Final.pdf I am so glad that it’s being hung in your entry. That definitely brings a smile to my face.
Thank you for this printable of the 23rd Psalm. I was looking all over the Internet for one that I liked enough to print for my wall. I will be using print paper to give it that extra glossiness and sturdiness. I am a rainbow lover and I couldn’t resist the many colors you used for this. Again thank you and BLESSED BE.
So fun to know this is hanging in your home to help inspire. I’m so happy to know how my work is helping others, so thanks for blessing me with this comment
Thank you for this printable. I just needed this reminder today. I have printed it and am hanging it over my desk and in my bedroom.
That makes me really happy! I’m glad it was a blessing for you! Thanks for letting me know!
Thank you! This is exactly what I was looking for! A visual to help my children memorize a beloved scripture. Thank you so much and blessings to you!
Yay! So glad to help. Thanks so much for commenting. 🙂
This is lovely. Is there a KJV available?
Hello! Thanks for asking. There was not a KJV available, so I decided to create one of those also. You can find it available here: https://meaningfulmama.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/The-LORD-is-my-shepher.pdf – Hope that helps. Blessings.
