CREATE IN ME Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. -Psalm 51:10-


Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.

Created in me a determined will, O God, and put a relentless urge to obey within me.

Create in me a renewed mind, O God, and put transformed reason within me.

Create in me a raging soul, O God,
and put a passionate longing for holiness within me.

Create in me a sanctified imagination, O God, and put a godly respect for all people within me.

Create in me a raw purpose, O God, and put daring eternal plans within me.

Create in me an intensified compassion, O God, and put a growing ache for the marginalized within me.

Create in me a chiseled personality, O God, and put more encouraging words within me.

Create in me full reliance on You, O God, and put a submissive spirit within me.

Create in me risky generosity, O God, and put a liberation from greed within me.

Create in me eager forgiveness, O God, and put a view from your cross within me.

Create in me a contented spirit, O God, and put an imperturbable faith within me.

Create in me a blazing vision, O God,
and put innovative dreams of Kingdom-building within me.

Create in me absolute trust, O God, and put joyful surrender within me.

Create in me assured hope, O God, and put an eager anticipation within me.

Create in me a burning heart, O God,
and put an unquenchable love for You within me.

Coness Your sins to friends

Confess your sins to 2-3 trusted friends you have selected for your journey. As you develop a small community of Christian brothers and sisters with whom you will travel in the Christian journey, part of that is holding each other accountable for sin. As you sin, it is good to confess that sin to Christian siblings so they can help you embrace God’s forgiving grace and remain accountable to them that you will not commit that sin again. They are there to help you be in a position so that God can transform you and your life so you live and love like Jesus wherever you go.
