Prayer of Salvation

 

Do you know Jesus?    Do you want eternal life?


The Bible says, “For all have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory” (Rom. 3:23). We were in danger of the wrath of God and eternal damnation because we would never be able to pay our sin debt. But God loved us so much that He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to earth to give His life as payment for our sins (John 3:16). Jesus took our sins in His body, paying the penalty for them by suffering death on the cross. Believing and accepting what Jesus did for us is the only way we can be forgiven of all our sins and become children of God (John 14:6). As children of God, we are heirs to His gift of eternal life and all His precious promises. Now, that’s good news! However, it’s not enough to just know about this—you are now faced with a choice. What choice will you make? Will you trust in Jesus Christ and accept His sacrifice that will save you from having to pay for your sins, or will you reject Him and pay the penalty required for sin—suffering the eternal fires in hell?


If your choice is Jesus, the process to receiving salvation (eternal life) is quite simple. The Bible says, “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved” (Romans 10:9). Now you are ready to pray, understanding that the prayer is not what saves you. God is looking at your heart to see if you really believe in Jesus. Ready? Let’s pray.


“Thank you, Father, for loving me. I confess that I have sinned against you. I believe that Your Son, Jesus, died on a cross to pay for my sins and that You raised Him from the dead. I now put my faith in Jesus and humbly ask to be forgiven and saved from my sins. I confess that Jesus is Lord. Thank you, Father, for your gift of eternal life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”


Congratulations! Now that you are saved, you need to grow in your relationship with God. In order to grow spiritually you must:

  • Love God and people (Matthew 22:36-40).
  • Read the Bible (1 Peter 2:2) – start with the Gospel of John, one chapter each day.
  • Pray to God constantly (Philippians 4:6-7) – Prayer is just talking to God. In prayer you can thank and worship God, ask for His help, confess your sins, and pray for others.
  • Find a good church and attend regularly (Hebrews 10:25) – Ask God in prayer to direct you to a church.
  • Tell others the good news about Jesus (Mark 16:15) – Don’t worry about not knowing enough to tell others. You know that you are saved because of what Jesus did for you—tell that. The more you pray, read your Bible, and attend church the more you will have to share with others.
