Ephesians 2:8-10

Dear Father, perfecter of humanity,

My God, even my believing was not something I was clever enough to do. It was your gift to me, not from my effort, lest I should boast of it.

In truth I am your workmanship, your creation, your starting and your finishing. You made me over in Christ Jesus so that I could perform the good works which you prepared beforehand for me to do, that I might walk in them.

Thank you, my awesome God and loving Father, for bringing me into sweet fellowship with you, your Son, your Spirit, and your people! Hallelujah! I love you.

In the name of Jesus and by his authority I boldly ask you to make of us the completely holy people that you intend as your inheritance. Amen.
