Brothers and Sisters: There is a rumor going around Church history about the connection between singing and praying. Well, it is no secret that the Psalms are certainly prayers; especially those in the Penitential Psalms (6, 32, 38, 51, 102, 130, and 143). It should also be known that the Temple was a great place for choir practice, going all the way back to the time of King David. If you grew up going to a Church youth camp, you have probably sung many praise songs based on the words of the Psalms. Psalm 51, of the seven penitential Psalms, is probably the favorite of the seven. It was written by King David, and stemmed from his sin with the woman, Bathsheba (2 Samuel chapter 11). This psalm gives a wonderful blueprint for how to take care of our sins. Following Psalm 51, we must first know our sins. (see verses 1-2) We must see that only God can take away our sins. We need our relationship with God repaired. (verses 3-12). This cleansing restores our vertical relationship (with God). Next, we must desire to love others (horizontal relationship) for what God has done for us (verses 13-17). A clean heart is a contrite heart (verse 17).                                                                                    Fr. David Tate
