"Teach me Your way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path." Psalm 27:11
"Teach me, and I will be quiet; show me where I have been wrong." Job 6:24
O Lord, teach me to know the vanity and emptiness of the world; its insufficiency to gratify the desires, or satisfy the longings of the new born soul; yes, its utter inability to make its most devoted votaries happy.
Teach me to value the bliss of heaven above all earthly joys; and to dread the torments of hell above all earthly sorrow.
Alas! How often do the pleasures of sense blunt my sensibilities to those things which are above; while the troubles of time obliterate from my mind, the miseries which await the impenitent and unbelieving.
Teach me, O blessed Savior, cheerfully to refuse the pleasures of sin, which end in everlasting torment; and cheerfully to endure those trials, for Your sake and the gospel's, which terminate in endless glory!
"Show me Your ways, O Lord, teach me Your paths; guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long." Psalm 25:4-5
