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 and my God. Amen.
