Good afternoon
Create in me a clean heart

and renew a right spirit within me.  Psalm 51: 10

Take two minutes of silence.

Dear God. Would you make a clean heart in me ? Can you make something out of nothing ? If you were to create in me a different kind of person/faith, would I accept it ? I might say, change me back.

Create in me a clean heart 

And renew a right spirit within me.  Psalm 51:10

Take two more minutes of silence. Pray with the verse .

I want to be renewed everyday. I think it is good to be born again all the time. I see life differently from when I was …. 18. I want to learn, grow and be more compassionate. I need to change.

Create in me a clean heart

And renew a right spirit within me Psalm 51:10

.Take a final two minutes in prayer with Psalm 51

Psalm 51 is King David’s request to God for forgiveness. He has committed adultery, and had Bathsheeba’s husband killed on the frontlines of a war. Does he deserve God’s grace ? Can God forgive the King, but not allow him to be King anymore? What are the consequences for our own sins ? 


Forgive me God,

For my sins of omission.

When I do not make a difference with my money.

When I do not call out racism or woman-hating.

When I do not call for a new radical form of the economy. A call to human rights for health care, housing and an affordable income.Help me O God.
