REMORSEFUL PRAYER OF THE FAITHFUL
(in line with Psalm 51)
Have mercy on me, O God,
according to your unfailing love;
according to your great compassion
blot out my transgressions.
Wash away all my iniquity
and cleanse me from my sin.
For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is always before me.
Against you, you only, have I sinned
and done what is evil in your sight;
so you are right in your verdict
and justified when you judge.
Surely I was sinful at birth,
sinful from the time my mother conceived me.
Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb;
you taught me wisdom in that secret place.
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
Let me hear joy and gladness;
let the bones you have crushed rejoice.
Hide your face from my sins
and blot out all my iniquity.
You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it;
you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.
My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart
you, God, will not despise.
Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me from your presence
or take your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
O LORD Jesus Christ, intervene and intercede on my behalf and have my supplication granted by my heavenly Father for I pray through your mighty name; Amen

In this empowering, ex-positional novel, the author introduces the reader to key elements of the walk of righteousness such as faith, humility, compassion, obedience, selflessness, love and prayer. Mrs. Biriyok demonstrates these virtues through stories of key Biblical figures such as Noah, Abraham, and Moses in the Old Testament and Jesus Christ and the apostle Peter in the New Testament. From these stories, she draws practical lessons for the Christian of today.
Throughout the book, she weaves the thread of her own life changing experiences and the practical ways she has shown her faith and compassion for others. This little book is a valuable addition to the devotional library for either the new Christian searching for guidance or the experienced Christian who seeks renewal and enlightenment in the walk of
faith, providing knowledge beyond what you may gain in your regular attendance of church.
The Manual for Righteous Living is a refreshing game-changing source of strength to transcend the frailties and pitiful arrogance of humans in order to receive the covering, security, endless provision of Abba Father. This empowering inspirational book offers immense insight to all truth seekers. The author’s challenging biblical illustrations and stories of key Biblical figures throughout the book, further expounded in analogous reference to an ordinary manual go to show extraordinary faith and lifestyle of characters of the old and the new era worthy of emulating. Mrs Biriyok introduces the reader to key elements of “the manual for righteousness” such as repentance and salvation, faith, knowledge of the word, abiding in the Word, evangelising, commitment and hope. The instructional approach to the key elements of holiness and godliness provides knowledge beyond what you may gain in your regular church attendance and provokes the quest for knowledge and closeness to God. Whilst it subtly transforms your old ways thereby birthing in you the new creature to God’s glory. A valuable addition to the devotional library for either the new or the experienced Christian.
