Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and put a new and right spirit within me.
40 days to accept the clean heart God offers, to acknowledge the spirit that is there waiting for our wills to bend. The 40 days will be up in the blink of an eye. Of course God’s grace isn’t time limited, but if we can’t do it in these 40 days, these days which we set aside and declare with ash our frailty, if we can’t do it in these day when will we do it?
