Purify me with hyssop and I will be clean; wash me and I will be whiter than snow.
Let me hear joy and celebration again; let the bones you crushed rejoice once more.
Hide your face from my sins; wipe away all my guilty deeds!
Create a clean heart for me, God; put a new, faithful spirit deep inside me!
Common English Bible
Put a new, faithful spirit deep inside me!
My simple prayer this week, Lord:
Put a new, faithful spirit deep inside me.
I turn to greet You.
You are the One to send Your Spirit to embrace my heart.
I can’t do it on my own.
My old spirit is broken, weak and mired in the mud of life.
Your spirit is new, whole and sparkles in Your light.
I am unfaithful and distracted by worldly and ego driven wants.
But my true hunger is for Your gift of faithfulness, one that only You can give.
Plant Your spirit deep inside me.
With roots so deep, nothing can remove it.
Your spirit is a wellspring of bottomless depth.
A rich deposit of Love.
Nothing can take You away from me, Lord.
Your steadfast Spirit hugs me with Your strong and unyielding embrace.
I am thankful for You, Lord.
Grateful for Your Spirit.
Filled with Your love.
