A Sinners Prayer

Jesus, I really do believe that you are the Son of God and the Son of Mary, the true Christ who came into the world to save sinners. I admit that I am a sinner and that I need you. Because without you I would have been damned and lost forever. So, with Mary as my Mother and Teacher, I want to magnify you as my God and Savior. My Jesus, I open my heart to you right now and from the arms of Mary I receive you into my heart to be my personal Savior, my very own Lord and Master. Take over my life and make me into the person you want me to be. Change me, teach me, protect me, so that all my thoughts and words and actions will be done according to Your Spirit. Thank you for dying on the cross for me, and giving up your Virgin-born Body and Blood so that my sins are washed away and no more remembered against me. And thank you for promising you will never leave me. With the help of your grace I will never leave you.
Thank you Jesus. Thank you Mary. Amen.

Two Excellent Examples to Describe What a Sinner is.

EXAMPLE ONE; The duel substance of Christ, the yearning so human, so super human, of man to attain God… Has always been a deep inscrutable mystery to me. My principle anguish and source of all my joy and sorrow from my youth onward has been the incessant, merciless battle between the spirit and the flesh… and my soul is the arena where these two armies have clashed and met. Nikos Kazantzakis

EXAMPLE TWO; Romans: Chapter 7:15-17 
"I do not understand what I do, for it is not what I wish that I do, but what I hate, that I do. But if I do what I do not wish, I admit that the Law is good. Now therefore it is no longer I who do it, but the sin that dwells in me. For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, no good dwells, because to wish is within my power, but I do not find the strength to accomplish what is good. For I do not the good that I wish, but the evil that I do not wish, I perform. Now if I do what I do not wish, it is no longer I who do it, but the sin that dwells in me." Saint. Paul

The words written here are by different men yet the substance is much the same. The struggle in our soul between good and evil would seem an endless battle. Yet what control have we over the sin that dwells within us? We have the greatest power of all, the power of prayer. Therefore pray that you may become dead to sin.
