Cleanse Thou Me From Secret Faults
Create in me a clean and right heart O God. A heart after You and You alone.
Cleanse me O Lord, and make me as You would have me to be. I am unable in my own strength and with my own wisdom to respond as I should to the grace You show me.
Restore unto me the joy of Your salvation, a zeal for the things that are eternal.
Hide away Your word of truth in my heart, that I may find the light whenever I get lost or stray from Your presence.
I pray for Your constant presence; that You always abide in my heart through the Holy Spirit.
Lord I need You, and I need new robes. I stain mine with foolishness and transgressions each day.
Help me Lord Jesus, to stay on the right path, to learn with decisiveness those lessons that You want me to learn, and to be a firm christian.
Lord, make me a Psalms 15 Christian.
1 Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
2 He that walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart.
3 He that back bites not with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbour, nor takes up a reproach against his neighbour.
4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned (despised) ; but he honours them that fear the LORD. He that swears to his own hurt, and changes not. (Decisiveness)
5 He that puts not out his money to usury, nor takes reward against the innocent. He that does these things shall never be moved.
Love this! May it be so for you… And for me too…
Amen! I notice that when I personally pray for strength or grace or to abound more in His work… oftentimes, He allows me to go through situations that would irritate or frustrate me… or drive me to prayer. I used to wait for some feeling to certify that now I have more strength…. But now I am learning when I pray such prayers, those fruits of the Holy Spirit come through teaching us lessons as we live out our day to day lives.
Thank you always for the encouragement!
