Dear God:


I know I have sinned and that my sin separates me from You. I am sorry for my sin. I believe Jesus died on the cross for me so my sin can be forgiven. I believe Jesus rose from the dead and is alive.


God, please forgive me. I ask Jesus to come into my life and be my Savior and Lord. I will obey You and live for You for the rest of my life.


Thank You. Amen.
