"Heavenly Father, I believe in You and that Your Word is true.  I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God, that Your Son died on the cross so that I may be forgiven for my sins and have eternal life, and that You raised Your Son from the dead.

I realize that I am a sinner and that I need You in my life.  I am sorry for the wrongs that I have done and ask that You forgive me for my sins.  Come into my heart right now Father, I give You my life and ask that You take full control from this moment on and guide me.

I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus. - Amen!"
