Psalm 51, 2015

I ask for a pure heart, O God!

A heart that is focused on you.

Keep me close to your side and grow your spirit within me.

Bring back the joy I felt when I first asked you to save me.April 11 2015 Psalm 51, 2015

Give me a faithful heart so I remain very near to you.

Then I will tell others about your saving grace.

I will share the truth you have revealed to me.

Please lift the burden of my guilt from me, O God.

Help me live in your grace and I will sing of your goodness forever.

When I open my mouth, Lord, let it be to praise you.

I know you don’t want me to just ‘show up’ at church because it’s the right thing to do.

I know you don’t want me to give money to the church just because it’s the right thing to do.

I know you don’t want me to read the Bible just so I can check it off of my reading plan for the year.

You want my heart to be broken open,

repentant,

humbled,

willing to be filled with truth by you,

my joy renewed by your grace.

Thank you, Abba Father.
