Wesley's Notes for Psalms 51:7

    To ware Daniel God loves you , You humbled yourself before Him, He will answer, Your humble cry made me ashamed of myself for not remembering to be humble before the Lord , sometimes I get a little self righteous and a know it all attitude. Have you read this Luke 18:10 -14

    I have been born again for a while it happened when I was praying in my bedroom, sometimes the enemy pulls me back in but I keep praying as Jesus said giving thanks always, and forgiving my enemies, was so numb before had such a void and that's why I know it's real. I prey for everybody who is questioning wether it's real and I ask that your eyes be opened spiritually in Jesus name Amen.

    oh my God! Help me even though I donot deserve to call on your help?

    I think that this verse is asking for the Lord for help in whatever sins he was dealing with.like repentance.he wanted, and we aslo as saints want to be perfect before our God..
