Bruce Thank You for the message–it was BENEFICIAL
Create in me a clean heart dear Lord!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I was receiving your daily devotions in my email inbox for a year now. All of a sudden they stopped coming. I’ve subscribed twice now and a response comes saying “subscibed”. They do not appear in my spam folder either.
You may try to unsubscribed your email and then subscribe again. I’m not sure if it will help but it may work. Or create a new email and subscribe with it. (Im not associated with bruce downs.org, just trying to help)
Yes you are! In caring and trying to help!
That happened to me this morning. No Ministry message. that was 5 am East Coast USA time. It is now almost 8:30 and it still isn’t here. I hope your staff can fix the glitch! Thanks.
You might want to check your junk mail. Sometimes it can accidently go in there. If you do find it in there, click on it and move it to the inbox. That should stop them from going in there further.
Create in me a clean heart oh god
You are such a Blessing Bruce, what you have just said this morning has lifted the greatest burden from me, I cannot thank you enough.
Aw!🙌. Enjoy the most beautiful day!
good Morning Bruce . I listened to your message this morning . I’ve read Ps 51 many times , but this morning when I heard you something moved in my heart ,tears came I was overwhelmed. God changed me, not me doing it. After all theses years, it’s taken me to realise. Thank you. Bless you and your family.
Wow, a new dimension for Psalm 51 as I ponder over it every day!
‘Create a clean heart in me dear God’. What a powerful phrase and I learnt from your video today the story and psalm it is from. Thank you Bruce.
How to pray for others during Lent
Simply hit me, what I have been doing right and yet then condemning me at times/moments of weakness. I have often asked God to help me change, but not put it into his hands. Create in me a clean heart, and renew in me a new spirit……thank you!
Depend on the Father’s endless mercy. He wants so much to heal our sore hearts and draw us into His friendship. Praise be Jesus the Lord.
May God be praised. I need God to change me but I am so slow to act. Please pray for me. God bless you
We all do need to change! 🙏. Truly enjoy the journey!
Thank you – it was just perfect! God Bless
I enjoyed hearing about King David and how he opened his heart to God to create a better heart. Sometimes in prayer I become stagnant and methodical so I need to open my heart to God and listen and not pray from fear or want but from the heart. Thank you
Thank you for your heartfelt words. Blessings to you for sharing. 🙏🏻
Wow, what a powerful message today, explained beautifully, thank you Bruce
So much, in a few minutes, thanks to start the day.
Bruce thank you for your message this morning Really needed to hear this May God touch and transform all our hearts and to recognise and stand before our sins God bless you Bruce you are an inspirational soul Thank you
Dear Bruce thanks for uplifting me every morning. Your daily devotions and prayers are phenomenal. Thankyou for sharing and may God continue to bless you abundantly 🙏
Thank you, Bruce, for your positive approach to Lent. I am finding these lenten programs uplifting and enlightening.
Thank you Bruce It is so reassuring to know that the Good Lord God hears us and loves us despite our sins and human failures . Open our hearts today and always Lord God and help us in our weekness God bless Bruce and his team .
i am so pleased to get these daily devotionals as they lift my spirits and bless me abundantly create in me a clean heart oh god and renew in me a right spirit
Thank you Bruce for taking this journey with me through Lent. God knows I needed it. Bless you and your family 🙏
Bruce thank you very for your message and guidance. Psalm 51.
A very powerful message! Today’s message really resonated with me. Thank you Bruce for explaining Gods word so perfectly so that we can understand it & put it into practice in our everyday life! God Bless you! ❤️🙏🙏🙏🙏
Create in me a clean heart and renew in me a new spirit my Lord!
Well every day’s a school day! I hadn’t realised that ‘ wash away my iniquity et al ‘ was from psalm 51 & from David. Really enjoying the talks & insights so far Bruce & really pleased that what you’re speaking about is referenced in the Bible. Thank you! God bless! 🙏
Thank you so much Bruce. The talks are so very relevant. It is all about what’s in our heart isn’t it and it’s good for us to be focusing on what really matters.
I think so too Kathleen. It’s more than giving up chocolate for sure. So good to hear this from Bro. Bruce.
Create a new heart in me O Lord. Forgive me for I have sinned. Only when I hand my wrong doing to You Lord will I be truly healed. Come Holy Spirit and cleanse me and put a new heart in me. Thank you for your wonderful and merciful love my precious Lord.
I found this morning in David’s psalm a much deeper understanding of God himself doing the work inside of us that we can,’t do ourselves. I think I will meditate on that psalm. Thank you for bringing God’s word to us in such a clear way. I had been trying to change myself & yes it was beyond me. Thank you Bruce. GOD BLESS YOU. Carol
Just keep talking to us and sharing GODS word with us. It is food for the soul. Air to breathe an water to drink.
I have been following every day and it just keeps getting better.
Jesús change me create in me a new heart please Lord
Thankyou for your message. Please pray for me that God will Create a new Heart within me….I am struggling to change something is holding me back to be open to God.. Thankyou
God bless you too Bruce..Today I will ask God to clean my Heart. I won’t promise to change.
This is the first time for as long as I can remember that I have actively participated in Lent. I am looking forward to your words each day Bruce. They are providing me with much food for thought and a guide in how to allow my heart to be open and my ears to listen. Thankyou
Thank you Bruce for this message. May the Lord bless you.

Thank you so much for being there to help me understand what lent is all about.
Please pray for me and my daughters
Love today’s message from Psalm 51 – it is has given me a new direction (and hope) for something I’ve been trying to change much of my life.
What I have been doing right and yet I have often asked God to help me change, but not put it into his hands. Create in me a clean heart, and renew in me a new spirit……thank you! Bless you Bruce, Romary and helpers.
I need a clean heart and pray that it will happen during this journey. I really do struggle in my marriage… I already learned so much this past week. Thank you.
God create in me a new heart and the right spirit. Thank You Jesus for your servant Bruce. I praise Your Holy Name knowing that my heart can be renewed Amen
God Create in me a good heart, renew in me a clean spirit. Amen
Thank you 🙏 for reading psalm 51 and reopening my heart to the beauty of god
Thoroughly enjoyed watching and listening and will do so again. It’s not always easy to find engaging catholic Christian devotions so I’m excited to stay in touch with your ministry.
God create in me a clean heart. Bless me and my family with understanding in every situation of our lives. Help me to forgive and let go. Amen, Love Lisa
Please pray for my husband. He was diagnosed with stage 4 cholangiocarcinoma. Doctors say he doesn’t have much longer to live. We have 6 daughters and 11 grandchildren 5 son-in-law’s. My husband is a vietnam veteran. He is so loving, patient, kind. We have been married for 31 years. How can I increase my faith and pray for a miracle, when doctors give no hope
Thank you for taking me on this Lenten journey, Bruce. I have been spending 15 minutes in the morning to talk to God in the same chair, as you encouraged us to do. I write it down. I find peace and joy at the start of each day by doing this. This morning, before I listened to your daily devotion today, I had written in my prayer ‘Create a clean heart in me, Lord’ I was following your format. I opened your email just now and was amazed that the subject was ‘Create in me a clean heart’ Thank you… Read more »
This was no coincidence, but Devine intervention!
I agree. Very possible. What a blessing.
