Asking for a Steadfast and Willing Spirit

I love David’s prayer in Psalm 51:10, 12. These words echo in my mind from my college days when I prayed this for myself over and over again. David cries, “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. . . Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.”

What a wonderful and powerful prayer to seek a pure heart, a steadfast spirit, a joyful understanding of salvation, and a willing spirit to follow the Lord.

I pray this for my family today, too.
