A Prayer That Leads to Enjoying The Rest Of Your
Dear God, I believe Jesus Christ was who He
claimed to be, Your Son, and that He proved it by
rising from death. Jesus Christ, thank You for
dying for me on the cross. I want You to forgive my
sins and I want to know You personally and
experience the freedom You offer. As much as I
know how, I ask You to come into my life and be my
Lord and Savior. Amen.
