Father, where this pain reveals sin in my heart, blot it out!
Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love. Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins. Psalms 51:1 (NLT)
May pride, bitterness, anger, and any other sin be exposed.
For I recognize my shameful deeds—they haunt me day and night. Against you, and you alone, have I sinned. I have done what is evil in your sight. You will be proved right in what you say, and your judgment against me is just. Psalms 51:3-4 (NLT)
If pain is what it takes to see more of my sin, what keeps me from knowing you more and being more like you, then I praise you for that gift.
Oh, give me back my joy again; you have broken me—now let me rejoice. Psalms 51:8 (NLT)
Where I’ve rebelled against you, forgive me.
But you desire honesty from the heart, so you can teach me to be wise in my inmost being. Psalms 51:6 (NLT)
Where my words have been rash and ungrateful, forgive me.
Purify me from my sins, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Psalms 51:7 (NLT)
Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a right spirit within me. Psalms 51:10 (NLT)
Thank you for Jesus, who bore my guilt on the cross, so I would never have to.
Restore to me again the joy of Your Salvation, and make me willing to obey you. Psalms 51:12 (NLT)
