Psalm 51:1-2, 10-12 NIV
1 Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. 2 Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin…
10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.11 Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
Heavenly Father, thank you that we can come to you in any state. Thank you that you receive us as sinners and do not turn us away. Thank you for your unfailing mercy and willingness to blot out our sins with the blood of Jesus. Lord, take my heart — my life and all that I am — and make me new. Create in me a clean and pure heart, Oh Lord. Renew a steadfast — a steady on, a stayed on spirit — within me. Please, Oh God, do not turn me away or take your presence from me. May your Holy Spirit surround my entire life. Restore to me, Oh Lord, the joy of my salvation and give me a willing spirit to follow you. Sustain me, Oh God, because of your love and mercy. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
