into my life and save me and change me, and make me the kind of person You want me to be.

bring. In Your name I pray. Lord Jesus, Amen."

heartbeat that my heart beats, call upon You, asking You to come into my life and save me and change me, and
make me the kind of person You want me to be. Give me the grace (or ability) to trust You and You alone, Lord
Jesus, from this moment on, for this salvation and the change You bring. In Your name I pray. Lord Jesus,
