1 Kings 18:41
Then Elijah said to Ahab, "Go get something to eat and drink, for I hear a mighty rainstorm coming!"
Lead me in the right path, O LORD, or my enemies will conquer me. Make your way plain for me to follow.
Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow.

Teach me how to live, O LORD. Lead me along the right path, for my enemies are waiting for me.
