Show Me Your Ways


Show me Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day. Psalms 25:4‭-‬5 NKJV

Have you ever longed to pray yet aren’t sure where to begin? That is a struggle for me too. This passage from Psalm 25 was a cry of David’s heart that has become my own most regular personal prayer. If you think about it this Psalm was originally written to an ancient tune that helped the readers remember the words. I believe God allowed those melodies to be forgotten, not so we would simply convert it to prose, but so that each generation could put it to their own music. A few years ago I recorded my own version and I hope that it might help you to make these words your own prayer today.

  1. What a beautiful worship chorus, Pete! I can easily imagine this being sung in a church service—to calm everyone after the high tempo praise songs. 😊 I’ve also written music to go with different passages in Psalms. Even when translated to English the text of many of the psalms has a “sing-songy” feel. Thank you for sharing this, brother!
