Dear heavenly Father, my heart is full of joy and thanksgiving that I have trusted in Jesus as my Saviour. Thank You Lord that you died to pay the price for my sins. Thank You that You went to the cross for me and took all the punishment that I deserve – thank You that You forgave me of my sins as a free gift of Your amazing grace. I praise and thank You for coming to earth as a Man and living a perfect life so that You could become the sacrifice for sin – the sacrifice for MY sin.. without which I would have remained dead in my trespasses and without hope in the world.
There are no words that are adequate to explain my thanks and praise to You. But Lord I thank You for this new beginning – this fresh start when I can step out into the world knowing that I have been saved and have been accepted into Your family as a child of God. Lord I want to learn more and more about You and ask that day by day You would open up my eyes to see You and my ears to hear You. Open up the scripture so that I may come to a deeper knowledge of You.
Thank You Lord. Thank You for being my Father and thank You for my new life in Christ which I have received by grace through faith. Thank You that nothing can ever separate me from Your love and thank You that I have an assurance that I will one day see You in heaven and know You, even as I am known. Thank You, in Jesus precious name,
