"Teacher," the man replied, "I've obeyed all these commandments since I was young."
Father in heaven, you are holy and majestic. I know that my attempts to be holy are sometimes going to be met with failure. I commit to work at being a holy person, but I know that my own efforts, even on my best days, are going to fall short. I thank you for giving me a righteousness beyond my abilities, works, and efforts. Thank you for Jesus, whose sacrifice for me makes me righteous and thank you for the Holy Spirit whose power works on transforming me into your character and holiness. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
