DAY 17: PURE HEART/ WILLING SPIRIT
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.
This Psalm is a prayer of David after he has been confronted by the prophet Nathan for his sin in committing adultery with Bathsheba. This heartfelt prayer is a cry to God for mercy, but it is also a call to God for His great direction. You ultimately cannot be the one who seeks forgiveness for the sins of your child, but you can beg God for His continued presence and move in his/her heart and spirit.
Don’t just pray this scripture today. Beg God on your child’s behalf.
