The "Prayer of Salvation" is the most important prayer we'll ever pray. When we're ready to become a Christian, we're ready to have our first real conversation with God, and these are its components:
We acknowledge that Jesus Christ is God; He came to earth as a man in order to live the sinless life that we cannot live; that He died in our place, so that we would not have to pay the penalty we deserve. We confess our past life of sin -- living for ourselves and not obeying God.
We admit we are ready to trust Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord.
We ask Jesus to come into our heart, take up residence there, and begin living through us.
Salvation is a free gift from God our heavenly Father. God gives us salvation based on what our Lord Jesus Christ has done for us on the cross. Romans 10:9-13 John 3:16 Acts 2:38.
If you are ready, to receive this free gift,
PRAY THIS PRAYER:
Lord Jesus, I confess my sins and ask for your forgiveness. Please come into my heart as my Lord and Savior. Lord Jesus, for too long I’ve hurt you and myself. I know that I have offended you. I need you because I cannot save myself. No longer will I close the door when I hear you knocking. Take complete control of my life and help me to walk in Your footsteps daily by the power of the Holy Spirit. By faith I gratefully receive your gift of life. I am so ready to trust you as my Lord and Savior. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for coming to earth. I believe you are the Son of God who died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead on the third day. Thank you for carrying my sins and giving me the gift of eternal life. I believe your words are true. Thank you for coming into my heart, Lord Jesus, and be my Savior.
In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
