Gracious Lord and heavenly King how can we every thank You enough for setting aside the glory that You had with the Father from before the creation of the worlds – to come to earth and become our sin-substitute so that whosever will believe on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ will be saved and have eternal life – I believe that You are the Christ the Son of the Living God, Who died for my sin and rose again so that I may live – praise You holy name, AMEN.

Loving Father, thank You that You have drawn me with You chords of love to know the Lord Jesus as my personal Saviour and heavenly Friend. I believe that Jesus is the Christ the Son of the living God, the Saviour of the world, not created and equal with the Father, yet was born as a Man - and because of His sinless life and sacrifice of Himself on the cross – I have life, eternal life – abundant life for which I praise Your holy name, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, what a blessing it is to confess Jesus Christ as God and Saviour. Thank You for making Yourself known to the children of men and thank You for convicting me of sin, righteousness and judgement, so that with Simon Peter, I too can declare with all the saints, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." Continue to guide me into all truth I pray, and may my life be a testimony to the truth that Christ alone has the words of eternal life - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, I want to deny myself, take up my cross daily, and identify with my Saviour. Help me not to live for myself but rather to live for You. Help me lose my life for Your sake, knowing that this world holds nothing of value… but that to follow You will result in the greatest reward, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
