A Sinner’s Prayer

Dear Jesus,
My enemies have brought me to my knees.
Now I am down here asking you please.
I know you have no reason to answer my pleading call.
I know you could stand back and just let me fall.
I know that I have failed you and caused you so much pain
when I turned away as you were calling my name.

I am sorry for the pain I have caused and for the tears you have shed.
I know up on the cross you suffered and bled.
I have come before you pleading my cause.
I don’t want to hesitate or even pause.
I am asking for forgiveness for my terrible sin.
Please help me Jesus to once again begin.
Do not let my enemies overcome and kill me.
Please, Holy Jesus set me free from my terrible enemy.
