Forgive me …
Love me …
Listen to me …
Deliver me …
Be compassionate towards me …
Be gracious to me …

We know all these and have said all these prayers at some point.
So had David and he uses them all in this Psalm. But he also uses this prayer which isn’t as popular: Teach me, v11.
What is God teaching you at this moment of your life?
What are you reading that has caused growth to happen?
Where have you been corrected?
A few days ago, a friend said to me he was going to read a certain book in order to try and understand the Trinity. How fantastic!
We are never too young or old to learn.
In 1523, an English animal trainer named John Fitzherbert said, “The dog must be trained when he is a whelp, or else it will not be [trained]; for it is hard to make an old dog [find a new scent].” Today, we’ve summarized his insight into this well-known adage: “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” It sounds good, but is it really true?
A show on the Discovery Channel called Mythbusters likes to take timeworn adages like this one and see if they’re true or false. So the presenters found a pair of aging Alaskan malamutes who didn’t know a single trick in the book. Malamutes are known for their stubbornness. As 7-year-old canines, siblings Bobo and Cece were equivalent to a couple of 50-year-olds in dog years, arguably qualifying them for the “old dog” category. After four days of training, Bobo and Cece proved Fitzherbert completely wrong. Each could heel, sit, lie down, stay, and shake upon command from Jamie and Adam.

Their conclusion: Myth busted. You can teach old dogs new tricks.

No matter where you are now or what is happening to you. The most exciting prayer that you could pray is: Teach me.
So go ahead … and be blessed.
