Make me new, O LORD…

Thank You, Father, that in Your wisdom You do not renew and restore the old fallen sin-nature in Adam, but You give me a new nature, a new, born-again life, received through faith in Christ.

Thank You for the lessons we can learn from biblical saints like David, who was cleansed of his sin, when he confessed his faults and cried out to You. Thank You for the indwelling ministry of the Holy Spirit, and I pray that You would point out all the areas in my life that grieve You or quench Your ongoing work within.

Create in me a clean heart I pray, and renew a steadfast spirit within me, and may Christ be seen in me as I submit to Your Spirit’s leading and do only those things I hear from Him, because I pray in the precious name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” (Psalm 51:10)
