Proverbs 8:17
17            I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently will find me.

Dear Father in heaven,
I come to You in the name of Jesus.

There is so much I donít understand about this life and I admit that I need more than my own strength and wisdom to make it through. I have lived as if I am the God of my life and I acknowledge that such thinking is foolish.

I realize that I have been given life and I haven enjoyed many blessings but I have given little or no acknowledgment to You as the giver of these good gifts. My avoidance or outright rejection of You is nothing more than rebellion. I understand that Your word refers to such rebellion as sin.

I come to You in faith, believing that You are my creator and I want to acknowledge You as my God. I believe that the help I really need is the help that only You can provide.

I am a sinner in need of forgiveness. I believe that Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ died on the cross at Calvary in order to pay the penalty for my sins and provide the forgiveness I need.

Your Holy Word tells me in Romans 10:9 that if I confess with my mouth and believe in my heart that Jesus is Lord and believe that You, raised Him from the dead, I shall be saved.

Right now I confess with my mouth and I believe in my heart that Jesus is Lord. I want to make Him Lord of my life and I believe that You raised Jesus from the dead. At this very moment, as an act of faith, I want to believe in and receive Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I believe that I am saved.

Thank You Father, Son and Holy Spirit for the abundant mercy and forgiveness You provide. Transform me and help me live a life full of meaning and purpose according to Your word.

Thank You for saving me.
In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen.
