God, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I deserve the consequences of my sin. However, I am trusting in Jesus Christ as my Savior. I believe that His death and resurrection provided for my forgiveness. I trust in Jesus and Jesus alone as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you Lord, for saving me and forgiving me! Amen!

I don't think there is one prayer that will suffice for your whole life. We need to repent constantly, and we always need to give God thanks. And God wants to hear from us. And we need His help and guidance. I surely couldn't make it through without that. So, there's no such thing as "the one prayer you'll ever need". Prayer is about heart more than the tongue.
In Matthew 6:9-15, Jesus stated the Model Prayer. This was to give us guidance and it is just an example as to what things we can pray for. He didn't mean for us to only pray to God using that one prayer. Jesus said, "But when praying, do not say the same things over and over again, just as the people of the nations do, for they imagine they will get a hearing for their use of many words" (Matthew 6:7). God wants for us to pray to him from our heart. We need to act in harmony with what we pray for and pray for things that are in accordance with God's will.
