WASH ME FROM MY INAPPROPRIATE CONDUCT
by Walter Tsuro
4/29/2014 / Prayers
Psalms 51:2Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
As humans, we all tend to have tendencies that spoil our reputations.
We need to acknowledge those faults and humbly ask The Lord to wash us up thoroughly.
The least we can do is to refrain from covering up those tendencies and confess to those that are spiritual.
We must cry out for The Lord to revive and restore us to appropriate behaviour.
Where we have wronged others we need to ask for forgiveness and where someone has wronged us we also need to forgive them.
PROCLAIMING PSALMS 51
> Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity [inappropriate tendencies] and
> Cleanse me from my sin
> For I acknowledge my transgressions [overstepping of boundaries]
> My sin is ever before me
> Against thee, thee only have I sinned and done this evil in thy sight
> That you maybe justified when you speak and be clear when you judge
> Behold you desire truth in our inner hearts: make me to know wisdom
> Purge me with hyssop and I shall be clean
> Make me to hear joy and gladness that the bones you have broken may rejoice
> Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me
