Meditation for Wednesday in the first week of Lent

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me. Psalm 50:10

O God, I know that if I do not love Thee with all my heart, with all my mind, with all my soul and with all my strength, I shall love something else with all my heart and mind and soul and strength. Grant that putting Thee first in all my lovings I may be liberated from all lesser loves and loyalties, and have Thee as my first love, my chiefest good and my final joy.
