Prayer
(based on Psalm 51: 12-19)

Creator, reshape my heart,
God steady my spirit.

Do not cast me aside
stripped of your holy spirit.

Save me, bring back my joy,
support me, strengthen my will.

Then I will teach your way
and sinners will turn to you.

Help me, stop my tears,
and I will sing your goodness.

Holy One, give me words
and I will shout your praise.
