King David’s Entrustment
In prayer, we have a direct beeline to God. Better than wireless, the Holy Spirit carries our message to the Father before we speak: “Even before a word is on my tongue, Lord, you know it all” (Psalm 139:4).
Entrusting himself wholly to the Lord, King David was heard and loved:
Create in me a clean heart, O God,Psalm 51:10-11 (RSV; 12-13 in NABRE)
and put a new and right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from thy presence,
and take not thy holy Spirit from me.
Create a pure heart for me, O God.
Renew a steadfast spirit within me.
