Heavenly Father in heaven,
I come to you in the name of Jesus. I confess that I have not lived my life for You, but I am glad to know I can change that. I have decided to accept and believe that Jesus is Your Son, and that He died on the cross and rose again from the dead, so I can have eternal life and the blessings of life now. Jesus come into my heart, be my Savior, be my Lord. From this day forward, and to the best of my ability, I will live my life for you. I turn from my sins and turn to you. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
