Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me (Psalm 51:12).
Boy, that David. It’s all gimme, gimme, gimme with him, isn’t it?
Forgive my sins!
Cleanse me with hyssop!
Create in me a pure heart!
Stay close to me!
Restore my joy!
Renew my spirit!
Yep, David asks and asks and asks…
And God gives and gives and gives.
Remember that, Beloved.
