God’s Grace and Mercy

Psalm 51, tells us what to pray when we realize that we are sinners as we hear what the word of God says to us:

HAVE MERCY ON ME, OH GOD, ACCORDING TO YOUR UNFAILING LOVE,
ACCORDING TO YOUR GREAT COMPASSION,  BLOT OUT MY TRANSGRESSIONS.
WASH AWAY ALL MY INIQUITY AND CLEANSE ME FROM MY SIN.

For I know my transgressions and my sin is always before me.  Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you are proved right when you speak and justified when you judge.  Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.  Surely you desire truth in the inner parts; you teach me wisdom in the inmost place.  Cleanse me …and I will be CLEAN, wash me and I will be WHITER than snow.  Let me hear joy and gladness. Let the bones you have crushed REJOICE.  Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity.

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.  Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit to SUSTAIN me!

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit and a broken and contrite heart, O God you will not despise.  (Verse 17)

Enjoy your day and spread the Good Word that His Name be Praised here and everywhere!
