Lord, I have sought You with all my heart and I know that I must confirm my faith 
to You because You are my God. Thank You for being merciful. I know that You will
not abandon or destroy me or forget the covenant with my forefathers. Thank You Lord 
for being Faithful to me, uphold me as I complete this act of faith to You, Amen.
