January 30 – February 5, 2022
Your judgments are righteous and fair. You watch over us in mercy and grace. We have received Your great blessings and protections. Now, open our eyes and our hearts that we might understand our condition before You. Do not leave us unaware. Holy Spirit, grant us a revelation and the humility to accept what You say. We bow our knee before the Creator of all things, to turn from our self-sufficiency, idolatry, immorality—-from all that separates us from You. Cleanse us, and we will be clean. Lord Jesus, thank You for Your shed blood, which washes, renews, and restores—in Your name, we pray. Amen.
I rejoice in Your great power. You have placed the stars in heaven and know them by name. You are aware when a sparrow falls to the ground. You have clothed the lilies of the field with a great and delicate beauty. You are watching over me! You are my strength and my defender. You give life to my mortal body and breath to my lungs. You uphold me in the midst of those who would bring destruction. I rejoice in Your faithfulness. I cast all my anxiety upon You. I choose to rest in Your abundant provision for me. Thank You for calling me, cleansing me, and placing me on a path of righteousness. In Jesus’ name, amen.
7 Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
8 Let me hear joy and gladness;
let the bones You have crushed rejoice.
9 Hide Your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity.
10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
11 Do not cast me from Your presence or take Your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
13 Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners will turn back to You.
Psalm 51:7-13 (NIV®)
