I had attended church my whole life, and been a part of many different religions . At times I felt satisfied, but always left the services feeling empty in my heart. It was as if I had a hole there that would never fill up or heal. I believed in God and I knew who Jesus is, but I was not feeling His love. I did not understand the impact of Jesus’ death and resurrection for my life.

One day a business associate of my husband’s came to our home. He shared with me who Jesus is and what He had done personally for me. An amazing revelation! Especially the part that I must personally accept Jesus into my heart. I needed to confess that He is my savior. I can’t express how I felt; so relieved, after all those years that I finally understood why Jesus had to die on the cross, including my personal relationship with Him.

That evening I prayed this simple prayer:
Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. Tonight I want to change. I believe in You and I understand that your died for me. I confess that You are my Lord and Savior. Forgive me of all my sins. I want your Holy Spirit to live in me. Thank you for giving your life for me. I want to live the rest of my days for You; guide me and direct me. In Jesus name I pray – Amen

Immediately, I knew that I had found what I had been missing, andI knew that I would spend eternity in the presence of Jesus!
