 Father God,
 I believe in my heart and confess with my mouth that Jesus is Your Son, the Savior of the
 world. I believe that He died on the cross for our sin and paid the price with His blood. I
 believe that You raised Him from the dead and He is alive today.
                                                                                                         Modern Jail Implements New Security Feature...
 Father, thank you for loving the world so much that You gave Your only begotten Son to die
 for our sin. Your word says that who so ever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal
 life. I am saved by grace through faith as a gift from you and there is nothing we can do to
 earn salvation.
 I am a sinner and ask for Your forgiveness. I am sorry for all I've done. Wash me, cleanse
 me, take away the stony heart and put in a heart of flesh.

 By faith I receive Jesus Christ now as my Lord and Savior, I believe that I'm saved and will
 spend eternity with You. Now I'm free!
 I thank You Father, in Jesus' name,
