Scripture. Behold, Thou desirest Truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part Thou shall make me to know Wisdom. Psalm 51:6 KJV
King David wrote this verse from Chapter Fifty-one after the Prophet Nathan had convicted him of his sin with Bathsheba. The Prophet broke the hold that sin had on him, by speaking Truth, and David realized he needed to repent and so, he asked for God's Mercy.
David admits he is a sinner from when he was shaped inside the womb. He asks to be purged and to be forgiven.
We can use this whole chapter as a prayer to God. The words help us to acknowledge our state before God and how sin is abhorrent to God, how He can never accept sin.
It will help us to ask for forgiveness and purging of the sin in our life.
It is so beautifully written and the Spirit has included it as one worthy of us singing, praying aloud to God, and meditating upon for our growth in Godly matters and for Godly Wisdom.
Lord, thank You that You have shown us the way to ask for forgiveness. Help me to keep this Psalm 51 of David in my heart, and use the words to learn how to pray to You. Amen
