Psalm 51:10-17

10. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
11. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.
12. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
13. Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will turn back to you.
14. Save me from bloodguilt, O God, the God who saves me, and my tongue will sing of your righteousness.
15. O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.
16. You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.
17. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

Ephesians 6:18-20

18. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
19. Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,
20. for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
