Listen to this audio post:
"I acknowledge my transgressions. Against thee, have I sinned. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit." Psalm 51
If you feel like you're not progressing the way you should with your meditation practice, you may want to consider King David's attitude when he was at the brink of destruction. As Saul's army cornered him, David cried out to God in repentance.
David discovered that a sincere plea for forgiveness is accepted by God, and restores power, spirit, and health. Just as God restored David to a place of blessing, God will spiritually restore you if you ask for forgiveness and honor God moving forward.
One Simple Tactic To Keep You Spiritually PureThe key to keeping God's blessing over your life and over your daily Christian meditation is repentance and contrition of heart. It may sound strange, but it's true. Virtually every thought, word, and action falls short of God's glory—anything that falls short of God's glory—is sin. So we must confess and repent before God daily. And Psalm 51 is God's authorized prayer template of repentance and forgiveness.
The Psalm That Changed My LifeAs you recite Psalm 51 you're going to be inspired to include personal feelings, confessions, and praises, go ahead and do so. God loves sincerity.
Want to max out your prayer time? Try sincerely reciting Psalm 51, 70, and 143. That's how I end each day. There's a few more Psalms I pray, but those are the bulk of my nightly routine. Trust me, within days you'll feel different, lighter, and less hindered.
