Why not try a prayer? It isn't as hard as it sounds! God is listening to you now, all you have to do is speak.
If these words match what you want to say, you could try them now:
Father God, I come to you in the name of your Son Jesus.
Please forgive me for ignoring you and failing you.
I ask you to count the punishment that Jesus suffered on the cross as being complete for me and make a new life inside me.
I give myself to you and commit from this day to be your child.
Thank you Lord.
Is that it? Well, if you had made your peace with a relative you wouldn't ignore them again would you? Try talking to him daily – get a Bible and read it. A good place to start is one the gospels in the New Testament – "John" is good. Why not step over the threshold into church?
