You desire truth in the inward being; therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart. 7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 8 Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones that you have crushed rejoice. 9 Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.
Psalm 51 is known as one of the 6 ‘penitential’ Psalms.
Lent is a time for reflection and release from all that binds us. Read it, pray with it and then write in your own words.
