Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me. Do not cast me away from your presence, and do not take your holy spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and sustain in me a willing spirit.

If I were to make a list of my most uttered prayers, "Help!" And "Thank You!" Would certainly be included. But right there in the top tier of candidates would also be, "God, I am so sorry. Please forgive me. Please don't give up on me." That is also on the top of my list of most answered prayers.

I am unworthy of your grace, but I still need it in a big way. Amen.
