“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast 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 me with a willing spirit. Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners will be converted to You.” (Psalms 51:10-13)
This passage of scripture is my daily prayer and foundational for my life. I would go as far as to say it’s my reset button. Our Heavenly Father is faithful and merciful. He gives us what we need for each day – one day at a time.
If you find yourself not knowing what to pray or how to pray, I would direct you to Psalms in the Bible as the place to start. Prayer is simply a conversation with God – nothing fancy required because He already knows your heart. His just wants to hear from you and be in relationship with you. Remember that a conversation is give and take. Take the time to sit still and listen with an open heart – God speaks to those who will earnestly listen.
