Father, You are good, infinitely good and there is nothing good in me. I am convinced beyond any doubt that I need Jesus. He is my Hope and my salvation. He is the only One who can forgive my sins and heal my diseases. I recognize that sin is in my heart and has been since my birth. I have the inclination to be selfish. Sin is always crouching at my door and I am constantly tempted to do what I want rather than what is best for others or that which brings honor to you. My default setting is negative and selfish. I need to be saved from my sin and from my self. I understand why Jesus had to die on a cross. I know that He died because of my sin. I feel the guilt of Calvary; I was there, no doubt about it. I have counted the cost of following Christ and I choose the reproach of Christ over the riches of this world or an eternity of regret in hell. I confess Christ as my LORD and Savior. He is my sovereign and my salvation. Father, I will that you change my life in any way that You see fit, chip away at all that does not resemble Your Son. Execute my self life and make me dead to the world and to sin so that I can be alive to Christ. My outer man is decaying day by day but my inner man has a greater spiritual appetite than ever before. I love Your word, I love to converse with You, I love gathering with the saints for worship, I love the preaching and teaching of your word. The things of this world do not satisfy me but Your word has substance; it is the bread of life. Thank You Father that you have not hid these things from us but have revealed them clearly in your word. We give you thanks in Jesus name. Amen!
