Salvation Prayer

Our First Real Conversation with God Begins With Faith

Your prayers are conversations with God as if talking to a friend. The “prayer of salvation” is the most important prayer we’ll ever pray. When we pray the prayer of salvation, we’re letting God know we are willing to accept and believe in Him. The Bible tells us that faith is a gift and “without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6)

So, when we pray, asking God for the gift of salvation, we’re exercising our free will to acknowledge that we are willing to accept and receive Him into our lives. That demonstration of faith pleases God, because we have freely chosen to know Him.

Prayer of Salvation – Confessing Our Sin

When we pray the prayer of salvation, we’re admitting that we’ve sinned. As the Bible says of everyone, save Christ alone: “For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

To sin is simply to fall short of the mark, as an arrow that does not quite hit the bull’s-eye. The glory of God that we fall short of is found only in Jesus Christ: “For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” (2 Corinthians 4:6)

The prayer of salvation, then, recognizes that Jesus Christ is the only human who ever lived without sin. “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” (2 Corinthians 5:21)

Prayer of Salvation – Professing Faith in Christ as Savior and Lord

With Christ as our sacrifice, substitute, and standard of perfection, we’re now acknowledging faith in Him as God, agreeing with the Apostle John that: “In the beginning was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.” (John 1:1-3)

Because God could only accept a perfect, sinless sacrifice, and because He knew that we could not possibly accomplish that, He sent His Son to die for us and pay the eternal price. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have
everlasting life.
.” (John 3:16) Because the wages of sin is death…sin leads us into consequences and eventually all will die.

Prayer of Salvation – Say It & Mean It Now!

Do you agree with everything you have read so far? If you do, don’t wait a moment longer to start your new life in Jesus Christ. Pray this with us:

Dear God in heaven,

I come to you seeking your Holy Spirit. I acknowledge to You, that without You I can do nothing. I am a
sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness.

You said in Your Word, “if we confess our sins you are faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to
cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9

I believe that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.

You said in Your Word, that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved. Romans 10:9

Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved.

Thank you God for your abundant love and unlimited grace. Thank you for your Holy Spirit which will comfort, guide and direct my ways. I thank you Jesus that your grace changes me from the inside out, renews, restores and strengthens me to overcome any temptation.  Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone. Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life. Amen.

Prayer of Salvation – I’ve Prayed It; Now What?

If you’ve prayed this prayer of salvation with true conviction and heart, you are now beginning a new life today so say you are reborn and saved in Christ. This is a fact, whether or not you feel any different. Religious systems may have led you to believe that you should feel something – a warm glow, a tingle,
or some other mystical experience. The fact is, you may, or you may not. If you have prayed the prayer of salvation and meant it, you are now a follower of Jesus. The Bible tells us that your eternal salvation is secure! “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)

Welcome to the family of God! We encourage you now to pray for God to lead you where you can be  grow in the knowledge of God through His Word, the Bible.

You may ask, “Now that I am saved, what’s next?”. First of all you need to get into a bible-based church for spiritual fellowship and to study God’s Word. Once you have found a church home, you will want to become water-baptized. By accepting Christ you are baptized in the spirit, but it is through water-baptism that you show your obedience to the Lord. along with a public declaration. Water baptism is a symbol of your salvation from the dead. You were dead but now you live, for the Lord Jesus Christ has redeemed you for a price! The price was His death on the cross. May God Bless You!
