Lord, Your unfailing love is my sustenance. Your mercy is my refuge. For You have blotted out my transgressions according to the compassion of the cross. Increase my faith, Father. Strengthen my trust. Wash away the stains upon my soul that evidence my iniquity. Only You can purify my heart. Only You can cleanse me of the darkness. Renew a steadfast spirit within me, Lord, as I draw near to Your presence. Replenish me with the joy of salvation so graciously bestowed. Let my soul overflow in grateful praise for You have been good to me. Though troubles assail me, You are my protector. Though the enemy tempts me, You are my Guide. Though I am weak, You are strong in me. Jesus, I need You, now and always. I bring to You my broken and contrite heart so that You can take the pieces in Your loving hands and create a masterpiece worthy of Your glory. Under the Word of truth in Psalm 51:10-11 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me from Your presence
or take Your Holy Spirit from me.
Psalm 51:10-11, CSB
