“Teach me Your way, O Lord; I will walk in Your truth; unite my heart to fear Your name” (Ps. 86:11, NKJV).
This verse has made a great impact on my life. Just below the chapter title, my Bible also includes these words: “A prayer of David.” Other than his incredible victory over Goliath, David is also remembered as a man after God’s own heart. Verse 11 gives us further proof of this. When you read through the Psalms, one thing is evident: David yearned for the Lord. He often praised God and declared His excellence. He meditated on the words of God throughout the day and night. He would ask God to examine his heart and prove him. These verses left a deep impression on me.
