Teach Me

Make me to know your ways, 
Lordteach me your paths.
Lead me in your truth, and teach me,   
for you are the God of my salvation;   
for you I wait all day long.  Psalm 24:4-5



Holy Teacher, 

You have made me as your pupil, your student, your disciple. 

I crave knowledge of You, your words, your works, your wonders. 

I long for the answers I am afraid to acknowledge. 
I search for the truth that I hesitate to acknowledge. 

All around me, I see situations, people, parts of creation that need your attention. 

How long, O God, will they wait? 
How much must they endure? 
Is this the time of trial? For them? 

Teach me. Teach me. Teach me. 

Let me hear your voice, read your lesson plans, follow your instructions. 
I will not be your model student, but I can be a student after your model, Jesus. 

You save me. 

More than the words of eternal life, Lord, you are the life itself. 
I want to learn this, to know it, to breathe it, to live it. 

Teach me. 

I wait for you. 

Your Spirit softens me, gives me practice, coaches me. 

Teach me. 

I wait for you. 

I perceive your forgiveness and your fierce instruction through Jesus the Son. 


Teach me. 

I wait for you. 

Holy Teacher, 


You created me as a pupil, a student, a disciple. 

Teach me. 

I wait for you.
