Jesus said to her,
“I am the resurrection and the life.
He who believes in me will live,
even though he dies;
and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
This prayer is the desire of my heart.
“Lord Jesus, I need You.
Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins.
Thank You for forgiving my sins
and giving me eternal life.
Take control of my life.
Make me the kind of person
You want me to be.”
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,
whenever you face trials of many kinds,
because you know that the testing of your faith
Let perseverance finish its work
so that you may be mature
not lacking anything.
