Ephesians 2:1-5 (KJV)
1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
Luke 8:11-13 (KJV)
11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
12 Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.
13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.
Matthew 10:21,22 (KJV)
21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Jesus, the Messiah, has come into this world to save us all from our sins. Believe in Him and endure in your faith for salvation.

I trust in You Lord. I give You my life. You are the hope of my salvation. Your words, in the Bible, has brought me here today. It has brought me to You, Lord. I need Your presence in my life. I need Your guidance. I need direction, that only comes from You. Please take my hand and lead me safely on Your path. Help me to resist temptation and no longer fall into the same traps I once fell into. I no longer wish to go through that hurt any longer. With You in my life Lord, I know that I do greater things. My faith is growing now, just talking to You. Strengthen me Lord. I love You. Amen.
