My Psalm

“Create in me a clean heart and renew a right Spirit within me” – Psalm 51:

I prayed with all my heart to God that I be like David but every day I find myself fall short of this; then it came to me that David was beyond perfect in all his ways, He killed a man and took his wife but God still called him a man after His heart… so here I am towing the path of David and reasoning with God through my own psalm:

 

I heard of your grace, I thought of it too but I dare not ask for fear you would reject me

I have killed with my lips, I have destroyed with my wishes and my mind plagued with bile

I have heard of your mercies from long ago, people spoke of your compassion but my heart is too weary to seek for it

Do I dare speak of your forgiveness, or even boast of your peace?

To die have I asked of you my Lord because my ways are sinful

Judgment has been passed on me, aspersions have been cast but who am I to reject them

I do not begrudge Lord because I have left all in your hands

Isn’t that where it’s meant to be?

Mortals are only right in their conceit, they do not know of the mercy you ask of them

I am at fault in all my ways but Lord I plead for justice not from their hands but from yours Lord

Your punishment I would gladly bear, your condemnations I would take to heart

I have failed you in my own stride; I dare not look upon your face

I have fed my flesh and belied your spirit in me

Restore me Lord according to your grace and your tender mercies, I do not deserve what I am asking but I trust you to be fair in judgment

My life is brief and half of my years have gone by and I seek your peace to live the rest

It is not for my days to be without pain but that you would be with me through it all

I bow before my Lord and King and pay obeisance at your feet

Your throne of mercy I seek

Your palace of goodness is where I long to be and live the rest of my days

Take pity on your servant and absolve me of my guilt

Only then can I be proud to be called your own…
