Create in me...

10 10 
By Debi Baker

"10 Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me."
Psalm 51:10 NIV

This is my prayer...I desire to have a pure heart.  I want to have a steadfast spirit.  What is a steadfast spirit?  

The definition of the word 'steadfast' is: 
     1) firm in purpose
     2) unwavering
     3) firmly established

With that definition, I would say that a steadfast spirit is on that is firmly established, unwavering, absolute in the purpose of following God.  That is the kind of walk I want as I follow after the heart of God.  I want to be firm in my purpose to be a daughter of the most High God.  I don't ever want to waver to the left or the right...I want to walk the straight walk completely unwavering and sure.  I want to be firmly established in my walk.  I refuse to let the enemy draw me off the path.  He can throw whatever he wants at me...but I will not follow him to hell.  I am bound for Heaven.  I pray that God will always keep my heart pure.  My intentions need to be Christ-like.  I pray that God will always make me aware of anything in my heart that could be used by the enemy to draw me off guard.

Yes, Lord, create in me a pure and clean heart.  Renew that steadfast spirit within me on a daily...hourly...basis.  Help me to never waiver!

What is your prayer today?  


  1. Amen. May God create in me a clean heart and give me a steadfast spirit. My prayer has been that God would give me and my family the fruits of the Spirit.

  2. Amen I've been in training for this one, haha. Doubt will hinder having a steadfast spirit, but faith will magnify it(: thanks for your post. xos
