He (Psalm 119:33-40)

Teach me, O Lord, to follow your decrees;
then I will keep them to the end.
Give me understanding, and I will keep your law
and obey it with all my heart.
Direct me in the path of your commands,
for there I find delight.
Turn my heart toward your statutes
and not toward selfish gain.
Turn my eyes away from worthless things;
preserve my life according to your word.[b]
Fulfill your promise to your servant,
so that you may be feared.
Take away the disgrace I dread,
for your laws are good.
How I long for your precepts!
Preserve my life in your righteousness.

Lord, I will follow your ways, as a son follows his father.
Because you love me….
Help me to understand your ways, so that I might follow them.
So that I might obey, joyfully!
I delight in your ways.
Because you love me….
Turn me from my selfish ways,
Lead me in your ways, for your glory.
Keep me from idols, from temporary pleasures;
Help me to pursue the eternal things – things of true value.
Your word is truth, and your promise you will fulfill.
Help me to fear you – but not in terror.
In reverence, as a son fears his father, who loves him…..
