Psalm 86:11  Teach me your ways, O Lord, that I may live according to your truth! Grant me purity of heart, so that I may honor you. (NLT)

This simple verse teaches us so much about how to pray. 

First, King David asks for more than a momentary intervention. He asks for a course of life, a set of habits. He wants to know God’s will, to apply God’s will, and to declare God’s will. 

David was not interested in settling for knowledge separated from context. He wanted God’s truth for every situation. He wanted to know God’s heart and mind in every circumstance. 

This is the kind of prayer God loves to answer with a resounding Yes.

Second, King David asks for a life that would reflect well on God. He wanted others to see in him God’s unmistakable grace and strength. He wanted everyone to know the source of his accomplishments. He wanted everyone to see how good God is. 

King David wanted to live the kind of life God can bless. He wanted what God wanted for him. 

Again, this is the kind of prayer God loves to hear and answer.

Let us pray.

I will ask God to shape me to live the life he desires for me.

Our Father, I want to know your will and your ways in all things. Empower me to live according to your truth and with a pure heart and clean hands. Amen.

Isaiah 1:18-20 “Come, let’s settle this,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are crimson red, they will be like wool.

Daily D – 2 Kings 20:1-6

2 Kings 20:1-6 In those days Hezekiah became terminally ill. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came and said to him, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Set your house in order, for you are about to die; you will not recover.’”

Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, remember how I have walked before you faithfully and wholeheartedly and have done what pleases you.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

Isaiah had not yet gone out of the inner courtyard when the word of the Lord came to him: “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ‘This is what the Lord God of your ancestor David says: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the Lord’s temple. I will add fifteen years to your life. I will rescue you and this city from the grasp of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’”
