The following prayer to God was delivered on the January 13, 2013 radio episode of Pray For US – Pray for the United States. The program originally aired on 1050 AM, KCAA in San Bernardino, California. Our guest for the program that day was state Senator Glenn Grothman from Wisconsin. We discussed his research into the fact that a single mother with a part-time job in Minnesota now takes in more cash and prizes in the form of welfare benefits than a married couple making $50,000 a year.
Heavenly Father, have mercy on me, a sinner. I believe in You and that Your Word is true.
I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God and that He died on the cross so that I may now have forgiveness for my sins and eternal life.
I know that without You in my heart, my life is meaningless. I believe in my heart that You, Lord God, raised Him from the dead.
Please, Jesus, forgive me for every sin I have ever committed or done in my heart. Please, Lord Jesus, forgive me and come into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior.
I need You to be my Father and my friend.
I give You my life and I ask You to take full control of it, from this moment on.
I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ.
