Wesley's Notes for Psalms 51:7

    The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. May God help us to have a broken and a contrite heart.

    When I read this psalms We all was in sin and shape in iniquity. We must each and every ask Jehovah God to clean our heart and repent of our sins. God love is unconditional and all He asks for us is to understand His word and follow Him. This must be a daily process. We are going to fall but we must get back. Repent of our sins and thank Jehovah for is love. He is a might God. Let praise Him.
