From Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers
Hoodoo psychic readers, spirit workers and root doctors who recite Psalms on behalf of clients may work with Psalm 23 for
altar work and prayers regarding all general petitions for intervention. Psalm 23 is recited for prosperity, abundance, love, marriage, protection, and wisdom and guidance. This Psalm is oft-used for variety of conditions and is considered a sincere petition for the intervention of the Lord in all positive matters. Psalm 23 can also be recited by root doctors on behalf of clients in order to gain insight, guidance, and visions. This is usually done in conjunction with washes and fasting.
 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the 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 they comfort me.
 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine 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 the house of the LORD for ever.
