Isaiah 58: 1-9; Psalm 51; Matthew 9: 14-15.

My lament

“Have mercy on me, God, in your kindness.” My sins have taken me away from my God, and yet, they bring me back to God because I seek his compassion for my weaknesses, his forgiveness for my sins. Only God can replace the emptiness that I find in my life with his divine love. The Psalmist speaks for me....Cleanse me from my sin; wash me from my guilt; a pure heart create for me; put a steadfast spirit within me; give me again the joy of your help; open my lips that my mouth shall declare your praise. “O God, a humbled, contrite heart you will not spurn.”
