Week of July 7 - Day 5

Day 5 Read: Psalm 51:16-17

For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it;
you will not be pleased with a burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. 

Reflect: How do these verses encourage or challenge you in your prayer life?

Pray: Personalize David’s prayer and make it your own: God, I know you do not delight in any sacrifices I make for you that are not accompanied by honesty and confession. Break my heart, Lord, over the sin in my life [specifically, name the sins that come to mind].
