Father God, I love you. I come to you today in faith asking you to forgive my sins. Jesus, I believe in you. I believe you died on the cross for me and shed your innocent blood for me. You took my place and all the punishment that I deserved. I believe you died and were buried and on the third day you rose from the dead. Death could not hold you. You have conquered Satan and taken the keys of hell and death away from him. I believe you did all of this for me because you love me. I want to serve you all the days of my life. I want to learn how to live the new life that you have promised me. I receive you now Jesus and I give myself to you. Take me just the way I am and make me what you want me to be. Thank you, Jesus, for saving me. Fill me with your Holy Spirit and teach me everything I need to know. Now, I believe that I am saved. I have been born again and I will go to heaven when I die. Father God, I am going to enjoy my journey and live for your glory. Amen.
