Prayer Poem

Prayer Asking To Be Taught By God

Prayer is a powerful thing. It is our direct line of communication to God. Through prayer we ask for help and guidance. We thank Him for our blessings. Through prayer we talk to God as we would any other friend. He wants and waits to hear from us because He loves us. He wants to teach us how to live in His image.

So touching is this prayer coming from heart. Empty me of myself so I can live for you. Thanks.

Teach Me, Lord


Published: April 2015

Teach me, Lord,
What I don't know.
Show me which way
And where to go.
Alone I stumble,
Alone I fall,
But your gentle voice
Leads through it all.
Take my hand,
Light my way,
Be my beacon
Night and day.
I am weak
And sometimes so low,
But you give me strength
And make me whole.
Teach me, Lord and Father.
Your child has become like new.
Empty me of myself
So I can live for you.

Your poem is beautiful, Heather. You ask for what we need the most in order to be able to live for our Lord. We certainly need his guidance so we can be faithful, obedient, show grace and kindness. He will help us all the way. We just need to ask in prayer just like you did in the poem. God bless you.
