Dear God,

I know that I am not worthy to be accepted by you.

            I don’t deserve your gift of eternal life.

            I am guilty of rebelling against you and ignoring you.

            I need forgiveness.

Thank you for sending your son to die for me

            that I may be forgiven.

Thank you that he rose from the dead

            to give me new life.

Please forgive me and change me,

            that I may live with Jesus as my Lord.     Amen
