Prayer to Receive Salvation
Prayer to Receive Salvation
If you have never made Jesus Christ Savior and Lord of your life, or perhaps you can’t recall actually asking Him to come into your life as Lord and Savior, the prayer below gives you that opportunity.
Father God –
I come to you in the name of Jesus. I am a sinner in need of a savior. Your Word says, “Everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved (Acts 2:21 NLT). Your Word instructs me exactly how to do that in Romans 10:9 (NLT): “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Therefore, I confess with my mouth and believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God, raised from the dead and my Savior and the Lord of my life.
Your Word also says that You would send your Holy Spirit to dwell in me and lead and guide me in the Truth of Your Word (John 14:15,16). I receive all He has to give me and desire to be led by Him every day.
Your Word says in II Corinthians 5:17 (NLT), “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” My new life begins today!
Now take a minute and thank God for His unfailing love, mercy and grace. (You may or may not “feel” any differently. That doesn’t matter; by an act of faith (believing before seeing or feeling anything) simply talk to God and thank Him for your new life in Christ.
Becoming born-again involves so much more than getting into heaven (although that would surely be enough). God has a wonderful life planned for you right here on earth (Jeremiah 29:11) and He loves you so much that He allowed His Son to die on the Cross to give you access to it. Get a Bible (New Living Translation is easily understood), if you don’t already have one, and start reading the book of John (found in the New Testament). Find a church that teaches the uncompromising Word of God and start attending. Make one of your first prayers be that God will send people into your life who will help you get started on this most wonderful journey! It will not be a life without struggles. In this world both believers and nonbelievers experience struggles. But your life will no longer be defined by the hurt and pain of those struggles; but by the peace, joy and victory you experience as Jesus overcomes those struggles through you!
