The Good Shepherd will feed his lambs and his sheep
Isaiah 40:11 - He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.
The Lord is a good shepherd and a good shepherd takes care of his flock. This Good Shepherd is extra caring for He says He will carry his little ones in his bosom and those who are mature in spirit, bringing others to the Lord; those He will lead gently.
The Lord ultimately wants all his lambs to become sheep, because He is come for his sheep [Matthew 25:31-33]. But when they are just new, He promises extra affection and care. Jesus Himself was called the Lamb of God and we are called his lambs and sheep.
Only when we imitate the characteristics of a lamb, we qualify for the promise. A lamb is a very timid animal which surrenders to its master. Like it is covered in wool, so also we should we cover ourselves by God's grace which can be received by having faith in Jesus.
The Lord is here looking for his lambs and sheep, if you are one of them call out unto Him. He will not leave even a single one behind and do all that is necessary to gather them together.
[ Prayer Starter ]

[ Reference Scriptures ]
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
