Oh Lord, I am grateful for this new life. My old life never had joy that lasted. I found pleasure in all the wrong things and all it did was bring guilt and shame. I hated the person I once was but could never escape it. It wasn’t until I came to You Lord, that all this changed. I had no way to escape the bondage of sin but You knew how to free me. Though I was held down in chains, You lifted them and showed me the way. My old ways were dead and I was finally renewed through Your blood. Thank You for hearing my prayers. My confessions were many and You listened and had mercy for my soul. You are such a merciful and loving God. I am so grateful to have discovered Your great love for me. I would be so lost without You. I never knew that joy could last. You have opened my eyes to the truth and I cannot get enough of it. I am so grateful that I went all in and got baptized. This was the day that I was filled with Your Spirit. It has led me to where I am today. Thank You for Your guiding hand. I am stronger with You in my life. I love You Lord. Amen.
