In Psalm 25, verses five through seven, David writes, “Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you. Remember, O Lord, your compassion and unfailing love, which you have shown from long ages past. Do not remember the rebellious sins of my youth. Remember me in the light of your unfailing love, for you are merciful, O Lord.”
Every day I pray for God to guide me and to help me choose the right path and make the right decisions for that day. This psalm from David is a great prayer and meditation to use for the morning time, when we are freshly awakened and about to begin our day, not having had time to make mistakes yet.
I have prayed many times for forgiveness for the transgressions of my youth, not to mention those from well into adulthood. I left my faith in my late teens and spent most of my adult life in secularism, putting my faith in human intelligence and valuing human esteem.
It was only after interacting with God and Christ using a legal substance that I learned again to place my faith where it belongs, with these sacred beings who are far more wise than any human being. I committed a lot of blasphemy when I was a secular adult, and I have a lot of remorse about that. I do believe God has forgiven me, but like David I still pray for forgiveness for the rebelliousness of my youth, because it still haunts me.
Like David writes here, God is merciful. When I interacted with him he was warm and full of mirth, though he does get frustrated when human beings stray from the path that he has laid for us. His presence inspires great trust, because it is clear that he is infinitely wise. I think the words in this psalm are a perfect morning prayer, something to start the day with by offering our lives to God for guidance, so that we are less likely to slip off of the path due to self-will.
