We are so ashamed. We feel such pain and anguish within us. We can’t get away from the sting of our sin against You, Lord! Everything we did, we did right in front of You, for You saw it all. Against You, and You above all, have we sinned. Everything You say to us is infallibly true and Your judgments conquer us. [Ps.51:3-4 TPT]
Lord, we have been sinners from birth, from the moment our mothers conceived us. [Ps.51:5 TPT]
Hide our sins from your face; erase all our guilt by your saving grace. [Ps.51:9 TPT]
May You never reject us! May You never take from us your sacred Spirit!
Lord God, unlock our hearts, unlock our lips, and our mouths will show forth our joyous praise! [Ps.51:15 TPT]
For the source of Your pleasure is not in our performance or the sacrifices we might offer to You. [Ps.51:16 TPT]
The fountain of Your pleasure is found in the sacrifice of our shattered hearts before You. You will not despise our tenderness as we humbly bow down at Your feet.
Because You favour Zion, do what is good for her. Be the protecting wall around Jerusalem. [Ps.51:18 TPT]
And when we are fully restored, You will rejoice and take delight in every offering of our lives as we bring our sacrifices of righteousness before You in love!
