Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Psalm 51 & 19

Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. 
Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.
Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.
Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart,
be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
Psalm 19 & 51

   
                   A few years ago, I was in a bible study and decided to pray the scriptures we were studying. I loved the prayers of David in Psalms and often I would pray them aloud or write the prayers in my journal. One prayer specifically I would pray often is “Lord, create in me a clean heart, and renew a right spirit within me”

                Soon after I began praying this, something supernatural happened to me. I woke up one morning feeling like a brand new person.  How can I explain it? I felt like I did when I was seven years old- completely free, without a burden in the world. I had new-found energy and joy. Do you remember the energy you had when you were 7? -to climb trees, run free, no worries, and all joy. I didn’t realize how much the world and pressures around me had weighed me down. I felt so different, but I didn’t understand what had just happened.

              As I woke up with this new feeling, I prayed, “Lord, what is this? I feel like I did when I was 7 years old?”  Within my heart I heard “You have a new spirit”. – not going to lie, that scared me! So I prayed back. “What?!?!?” and I heard “You prayed for this”. I didn’t remember praying for that, I didn’t really think I would get a new heart, I just thought they were great words and prayers from King David. I jumped out of bed and ran to my notebook and began flipping through the prayers I had written:

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me

  Over and over again, I had prayed this verse. I had a new spirit within me! It was amazing! So many things have happened supernaturally, but I just can’t fully explain them- another one being the mighty rush of wind- that was terrifying and at that moment something happened too. God’s Word is powerful and alive, keep it close to your heart.

Last year, I had a dream after I prayed the Prayer of Transformation . In the dream, my heart and life were being cleaned out – as if I was being made new again. I believe this is what will happen to us at the Lord’s coming:

           Early morning, I was waking up out of a very different dream. It seemed there had been an innumerable amount of time and hours spent searching through my entire life- an exhaustive study- you could say of me. Things were being taken out of my life- every bad thing I had ever done and said, along with every wrong or bad thing that had happened to me. All of this was being taken out of me and put in a canister that was being held by an angel. There was much- intense study- searching back to my early childhood. I stood there as my life was being cleaned out – as if they where going in my heart/spirit and cleaning everything out. As I was waking up, yet still in dream, the exhaustive study of me was almost over. I say exhaustive because not only did it seem to take a long time to do this, but also because they didn’t stop until every wrong, every hurt, every evil was gone. It was amazing to think that even as a small child, there were hurts that I didn’t even know were there. They were taking out all the times I had been hurt or hard times I had suffered- even back to my toddler and childhood days. It was amazing. I looked at the canister and it was almost full and I turned to see myself. I could see myself standing up with my arms out as my life was searched and cleaned out. I looked- and in amazement I had turned into this brilliant shining white light. My arms, my clothes where like a bright white shining light. I could see myself on a brilliant white step and there I was- a brilliant shining white light. I was changed and transformed. I wonder if this is what will happen when the Lord changes us when He returns again! It was amazing.

    I really can’t explain all these great mysteries, I can only share what I have experienced and remind you that God’s word is ALIVE AND POWERFUL. It is your sword and your weapon- don’t let it get rusty hidden away in a corner, but open up the Word of God and see what the Lord has for you.  Ask the Lord to create in you a clean heart and renew a right spirit within you, also remember always the importance of protecting your heart:

Guard your heart above all else,
    for it determines the course of your life.
 Avoid all perverse talk;
    stay away from corrupt speech.
 Look straight ahead,
    and fix your eyes on what lies before you.
Mark out a straight path for your feet;
    stay on the safe path.
 Don’t get sidetracked;
    keep your feet from following evil.
Proverbs 4:23-27

How is your heart?

  Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart? Cleanse me from these hidden faults Psalm 51:10 Psalm 19:12

And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh: Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel? A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh Ezekiel 11:19  Ezekiel 18:31 Ezekiel 36:26

 No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse.  Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved. Matthew 9:16 Matthew 9:17 Luke 5:38

          Another time I prayed scripture to the Lord ,as I searched for answers, was when my first daughter died. I reminded Him every day of the parable of the annoying woman who came to the evil king, and even he granted her what she wanted, I told Him, surely you can do greater – and He answered me. I called out all the scripture I knew to Him and He answered me! I wrote that in Where to babies go when they die?
