"Teach Me Lord" is an original Christian poem submitted by a reader, Shirley Strawter. The poem forms a single-minded prayer asking for help living for God. 

Teach Me Lord

Teach me, Lord, the ways of truth,
So I may not abuse my youth
In idle things that will not give
Instructions in the way to live.
Bless me with a godly mind
That I may walk and be most kind
To all of those who may not know
The Christian way in which to go.
Teach me, Lord, in my old age
To see your goodness in every page
Of my Bible as I read
Of how you'll meet my every need.
Please teach me, Lord, this prayer I pray
To serve you now in every way.
