A Prayer For Starting The Race

Father I acknowledge that I am a sinner. There is nothing good in me, and there is nothing in You but good. I choose to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ who died for my sins so that I can receive forgiveness. I confess my sins, for they separate me from You. How thankful I am that Your blood covers all my sins, for Your Word indicates that even the vilest of sinners who truly believes that moment from Jesus a pardon receives. I have determined that I will run this race with the Lord and follow His Word all the days of my life. Each day I want to pray this in faith through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.
