Teach me Your way, O Lord,

in You, I will abide;

may I fear Your great Name,

a heart none can divide.

I will ever praise You,

O Lord with all my heart;

I’ll praise Your Name always,

the Granter of new starts.

Great is Your love for me,

delivered from the grave;

powerful, Your promise,

so plain the path You pave.

Though arrogant surround,

You are my gracious Lord;

slow to become angry,

lavish love You afford.

Turn to me, have mercy,

and grant to me Your strength;

demonstrate Your goodness,

keep me in Your arm’s length.

 

(Responding to Psalm 86:11-17)

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that as we abide in You, You instruct and strengthen, protect and provide grace.  Thank You that You are slow to anger and abound in love.  Forgive us for taking grace for granted, and help us to ever praise You.  Teach us Your ways, and make plain the path You have set before us.  Strengthen us so that we may have undivided hearts, and forever abide in You.  As we walk in faithful obedience, may many come to know of Your great love, so that they too, will abide in You.  Great are You, our gracious and loving God!  Amen.
