Create In Me, O God
« on: Sun Oct 17, 2021 - 17:09:17 »
“Create In Me, O God”
Psalm 51:10
NIV- Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
NLT-Create in me a clean heart, O God.  Renew a loyal spirit within me.

Father God, create in me a pure and clean heart when I…..

Treat my wife and daughters in ways that do not honor You.
Say things to my wife and daughters that I really regret later.
Think things that are not appropriate and tempted to be immoral.
Say things and treat my co-workers in ways that are not Godly.
Say things about other people that do not glorify You.
Lose my temper and sometimes let words fly that I shouldn’t say.
Get upset in traffic and treat others in a very non Christ-like way.
Get so wrapped up in my own ways and neglect to love on my family as I should.
Get so focused on what I want that I forget to show Your love to others.
Become so self-centered that I forget to serve others and meet their needs.

Father, help renew a steadfast and loyal spirit within me when I want to give up and do life the easy way.  Father, I desperately need You to create in me a clean and pure heart so that I can stop focusing on the things of this world and my own selfishness and just totally focus on You.  Lord, as I heard this passage this morning in church, it reminded me how so much I need You to cleanse me from my sins and how I need to be renewed and restored.

Father, I need to be renewed with a steadfast and loyal spirit so that I may better serve You and completely surrender to You.  From this day on, I want to be more committed, no matter how challenging life becomes.  I want to show and lavish Your love in my home and encourage my wife and girls instead of hindering them as I so often do with my selfishness. 

Father, please create in me a very pure and clean heart and forgive me.  May others see You through me day in and day out.
