A prayer for a pure heat. This prayer is based on Psalm 51. Purity of the heart comes from recognizing how much we need Jesus to forgive and heal us of the wound of sin. Only his loving restoration makes us new again. When we ask for forgiveness – and when we forgive – our hearts are made pure.
And if there is a situation I am not yet ready to forgive, I forgive myself for that. For all the ways that I harm myself, negate, doubt, belittle myself, judge or be unkind to myself, through my own confusions, I forgive myself.
