Make me to know your Christs(1), Oh LORD; teach me your paths.
Lead me in Christ(2), and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation.
Good and upright is the LORD;
therefore he instructs sinners in Christ.(3)
He leads the humble in what is right,
and teaches the humble Christ.(4)
1 = ways
2 = your truth
3 = the way
4 = his way
This is like the good prayer of reading 1 Corinthians 13:4 and following:
Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right.
and substituting your own name for "Love." So, "Therese Z is patient, Therese Z is kind, she is humble, does not put on airs...." (The wording reflects my serious case of John Michael Talbot Lyric Syndrome: I've learned more Psalms more thoroughly listening to his music than anywhere else.)
I appreciate these methods of praying with Scripture. Thanks, TSO.
