I resign and renounce all the sins and abominations of my past against You. Every promise I made during Baptism I renew them, and from henceforth, I eternally surrender myself to Your service, purpose and love. Help me to despise sin even more than I despise death. Guide my path towards the right direction and help me to always find myself around the right friends and companies. I know on my own I may not be able to do all this, but with You, I can do all things; give me the grace to fulfil all that I have resolved today, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen!
