Dear Loving Heavenly Father, I come to you a broken-hearted sinner. I come to You in brokenness of heart, for I am beginning to understand what the Lord Jesus Christ actually did for me on the Cross. I realise that I am a sinner not only in the terrible things that I have been engaged in, but in my very heart, which is overburdened with sin. I now understand what it means in the Bible when it says there is no one that is good and that all man wants to do are bad things all the time. I see myself in that verse.
Lord, I am so sorry and I just want to repent and turn away from all the evil that I have been engaged in. My heart is broken to realise that the punishment that I deserve was placed on the Lord Jesus, and that He paid the price for my sins. All my sins have been washed away and He has even clothed me with His own goodness and righteousness.
Father God, I know that I am a sinful person and that I deserve nothing but hell – separation from You for eternity – and yet because of Christ my black soul has been made pure and clean.
Thank You Father. I believe and trust in Christ my Saviour and thank You that Jesus Christ died for us all.
