New Living Translation (NLT)
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God.
Renew a loyal spirit within me.
11 Do not banish me from your presence,
and don’t take your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
and make me willing to obey you.
13 Then I will teach your ways to rebels,
and they will return to you.
To create something, one must bring it into existence where it has never existed before. What a magical thing! Not a renewing or a refreshing, but to make anew.
Come from above and move within us. Make us new creatures. Rend away from us the old, the weak, the useless, and fill us with the new, the strong, and give us new meaning. We tire of this body of death and long to be within Your presence. May we forever be filled with Your Holy Spirit and walk within Your shadow.
Thank You, Lord for every blessing.
