Have mercy on me according to your unfailing love. According to your great compassion, blot out my transgressions. Wash away all of my iniquity and cleanse me from my sins. Create in me a pure heart and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Let me always remember that I should have no fear of sudden disaster that overtakes the wicked, because you will be my confidence and will keep my foot from being snared. Help me leave my simple ways so that I should live. Guide me as I learn to walk in the way of understanding. Give me a cheerful look so that I could bring joy to the heart, and give good news to be health to the bones.
I know in my heart I plan a course, but it’s you who determines my steps. Allow me to commit to you whatever I do so that my plans succeed. Do not let me wear myself out to get rich; give me the wisdom to show restraint.
I am confident of this: I will see the goodness of you Lord in the land of the living. So I will wait for you, be strong, take heart, and wait for you God.
In the Christ’s loving name. Amen
