Day 13: 31 Days of Praying Scripture for Children

Day 13:  August 31- Psalms 51:10  Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Psalms 51 is a prayer from David to God.  David had been confronted about the sin in his life.  You can feel the weight of sin upon him as he prays to God.  Recognizing that God was the only one who could "clean him up" and make something out of him.  The only one that could do something with his life.  What an attitude of submission and repentance David prayed. 

Generous in Love- God, Giver of Grace!
Allow this child to sense the need for your love and grace in their life.  Create in them a pure heart, O God;  Let their purity of heart be shown in their actions.  Do not throw them out or fail to breath holiness in them.  Going through the motions doesn't please you Lord, a flawless performance is nothing to you.  Teach this child "God-worship" through a "heart-shattered life ready for love.  It is this kind of life that will not escape God's notice.  -Amen
