Lord, my relationship with You is paramount, above all others, because You are above all. I want nothing to come between us, nothing to spoil the sweet time we share. My flesh fails me, but you forgive and restore me in your generosity. Your grace gets to the messes in my heart and not only cleans them up, but also replaces the stony flesh with a heart that desires more of You. You restore to me the joy of your salvation. There is no better place than within your presence. I bring my song of thanks in your name and authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.” (Psalm 51: 10-12 ESV)
