Psalm 119: 33-40 (NIV)
What kind of things do you ask God for? I usually have a list – prayers for healing, salvation, protection, and thanks. But how often do I ask God to change me from the inside out.
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 will 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; renew my life according to your word.
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!
Renew my life in your righteousness.
The Psalmist is asking God for direction, understanding, and to be taught by God himself.
