Praying the Psalms- Psalm 25

Jenny has begun a journey of praying her way through the Psalms that I have decided to join. Each weekend, we will pray through one psalm and post our prayer and/or meditations on that psalm as the Lord leads. Check out her journey and join us in Praying the Psalms.

"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."  Ps 25: 4-5

Though I have been a Christian walking closely with the Lord for almost 8 years and I have been taught about Him all my life, I will always need Him to guide me and teach me.  He is my only hope for walking in righteousness.  I need continual relationship.  When I stray from Him, I lose perspective.  I lose hope for this journey.

"Remember, O LORD, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old.
Remember not the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; 
according to your love remember me, for you are good, O LORD."  Ps 25:6-7

I am so grateful for His mercy and love.  For His patience with me as I make the same mistakes over and over.  For His forgiveness!

"Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way."  Ps 25: 8-9

Thank you for never giving up on me, Lord.  Give me humility to receive your guidance and teaching.  In Jesus' name, amen.

Great post. I especially liked this - "When I stray from Him, I lose perspective. I lose hope for this journey."
Me, too. So easy to do but memes like this one help me stay focused!! God bless!

Yes, it is so easy to do. For me, just a simple break in routine (like my recent vacation) can cause my straying. What peace in knowing He is always ready to receive me when I wander back into His arms!

Natalie, this IS a great post. I, too, like the part about straying & losing perspective. It is so easy to do in this world in which we live. Thanks for reminding me to stop and think.
