This is a great idea!
"Who do you say that I am?"
Jesus, I confess that you are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Indeed, you are both Savior and Lord. I am yours.

Ultimately, it seems to me that it is more important that I acknowledge who Jesus is by His own self declaration and admission than by who "I" say that He is.
Frances Schaeffer acknowledged that Jesus is Lord, seated at the right hand of the Father, whether anyone believes it or not. He is the Christ whether we preach it or not. He is coming again to judge the living and the dead whether we want Him to or not.
He is the Light of the world, the bread of heaven, the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world whether or not we choose to live in darkness and die without Him. He is the Way and the Truth and the Life whether we follow Him or the father of lies, His enemy.
Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the Last, the Living One. He is the bright morning star, the solid Rock, and our only hope in life or in death. Believe it or not.

Jesus is my life and my salvation, the Good Shepherd and the Great Physician. The Word of God and the exact representation of the Father. In Him God was pleased to fully dwell. He is fully God and fully human, full of grace of truth, sinless yet condemned, crucified yet risen, at once Prophet, Priest and King, forever.

Jesus is who He claimed to be. Believe it or not.
