The prayer of repentance

Create a pure heart in me, O God, and put a new and loyal spirit in me.

Psalms 51:10 GNB

This scripture is a prayer of repentance. Create a pure heart in me. Take away the old stony heart, take away the rigid, fragile heart. Take away the dirt-filled heart. Take away Lord the judgemental heart. Remove this negative and critical heart Lord. Holy Spirit cleanse me, everything that is not fruitful and pleasing to God cut it off. Help me Holy Spirit to guard my heart. Take away this heart that’s filled with anxiety, past hurts.

Deal Lord with this heart that is fearful, let it meditate on Your good works. Let it be righteous.  Put in me a new and loyal spirit. A new spirit of peace, a spirit of joy, a spirit of love. A spirit of excellence,  integrity. Impart upon my heart a spirit of wisdom. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Let my heart love and lead like Jesus. Lord may I completely depend on You, Hold my hand.

Cleanse and renew my heart. Let it hope in You, You are the Father of hope.

Today’s prayer

Lord I bless You. Thank You for restoring my heart. Thank You for cleansing all the dangerous debris from my heart. I am quite confident of this Lord.. that God, who began this good work in me, will carry it on until it is finished on the Day of Christ Jesus. In Jesus Name…Amen
