Oh Lord, You know my heart for You. I have done wrong things and I am so sorry. Forgive me, God. Help me to live a life that is according to Your will. I know that I cannot do this on my own. So I ask that You come and take me by the hand and lead me in the ways of righteousness. Cast out of my life every ounce of sin and darkness, and replace these things with Your love and light. I admit that I am a sinner, but only through Your hand can I become a saint. Never will I ever become this unless You are abiding in my life daily. Therefore, I come to You earnestly in prayer and confessions that You might make me whole. I ask that from here on out, You will take a sinner like me and do a work in me each day, that I might become Your true servant. Lord, I have worked for Your kingdom in the past, but now I am earnest in this desire. I truly wish to be saved and go to heaven. No longer do I wish to live for the flesh, but do as You command me. I have not always loved Your ways, but know that with You abiding in me, I will begin to love Your ways much more than what the flesh desires. Give me clean hands and a pure heart. It is my true desire that You will have mercy for my soul and lead me to be with You in heaven. I believe in You, Jesus. I trust in You. You are my Savior and I love You. Amen.
Revelation 22:14-17 (KJV)
14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
Every person has free will in the life they want to live. However, only through our obedience to God will we be saved.
