whiter than snow. Make me hear joy and gladness, That the bones You
have broken may rejoice. Hide Your face from my sins, And blot out all
my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast
spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not
take Your Holy Spirit from me.
He’s always waiting for us to come to Him, to seek Him, to find Him, to draw close to Him. He is waiting to forgive, cleanse, and mend. He’s waiting at the end of the road always watching in anticipation for us to come running to Him asking to be His child once again. ²
We don’t deserve this grace. No. But He is offering it to us.
And we can come just as we are. Just as we are we can come, kneel, bend our hearts and heads to accept His invitation of life. Resurrection only happens when we die first.
PRAYER OF A
Create in my heart, Lord,
a secret place
a clean slate
a space to receive Your grace.
Where Your Living Water
flows in trickling drops
touching each parched spot
cleansing the uttermost blot.
Create in me, O God,
a clean heart
whiter than snow
purer than gold.
That my spirit may be
refreshed, renewed, released
joyful in salvation’s tune
singing Your praises today
in thankfulness, rejoicing always.

let’s find a safe haven from the world in the quiet refuge of our souls.
Find refreshment in the joy of our salvation through the cleansing of a
contrite, broken, spilled out spirit to God.
¹ Isaiah 55:6
