Prayer of the Day: Be Gracious to Me, O God–Psalm 51:1-4, 17
Pray this powerful prayer with your whole heart, mind and spirit:
“Have mercy on me, O God,
according to Your unfailing love;
according to Your great compassion
blot out my transgressions.
Wash away all my iniquity
and cleanse me from my sin.
For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is always before me.
Against You, You only, have I sinned
and done what is evil in Your sight;
so You are right in Your verdict
and justified when You judge.
My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart
Please God, do not despise.”
God loves the honest prayers from a humble and contrite spirit. As you pray this to Him today, put your whole heart, mind and soul into it. God will hear you, and He will answer.
