Psalm 51- still sinning.

1 Have mercy on me, God, according to your loving kindness. According to the multitude of your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity. Cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I know my transgressions. My sin is constantly before me.
4 Against you, and you only, have I sinned, and done that which is evil in your sight; that you may be proved right when you speak, and justified when you judge.
5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity. In sin my mother conceived me.
6 Behold, you desire truth in the inward parts. You teach me wisdom in the inmost place.
7 Purify me with hyssop, and I will be clean. Wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
8 Let me hear joy and gladness, That the bones which you have broken may rejoice.
9 Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all of my iniquities.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a right spirit within me.
11 Don't throw me from your presence, and don't take your holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation. Uphold me with a willing spirit.
13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways. Sinners shall be converted to you.
14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation. My tongue shall sing aloud of your righteousness.


With the deepest regrets and hatred of my sins I pray oh Lord that you forgive me. Cleanse me so that I may once again be worthy of your love. I know the holy spirit inside me has made my struggles easier to bear but I still manage to fail. I honestly can't live without you Lord, even while languishing in the fleshly pleasures of sin I feel like I'm holding my breath, I can't stay that way for long. Once again I beg for forgiveness and I know that you can erase my sins. I thank you for saving me, always being with me, and always giving me that second chance. I will make it my goal to do the same for others as you have done for me. Thank you Jesus for hearing my prayers. Amen.
