Prayer for Salvation

The Bible says there is one way to Heaven. Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father but by me." (John 14:6) This one way is to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and follow God's plans for your life which is laid out in the Bible.  Good works cannot save you. Only faith in Jesus can save you. "God saved you by His grace when you believed. And you can't take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boost about it."(Ephesians 2:8-9)

1) TRUST CHRIST TODAY & HERE'S WHAT YOU MUST DO (Read Below)

2) Admit that you are a sinner and that you need God's help.

  • "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" (Romans 3:23)

  • "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:" (Romans 5:12)

  • "If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us." (1 John 1:10)

3) Be willing to change your mind and turn from your sin (repent).

  • Jesus said: "No, and I tell you again that unless you repent you will perish too " (Luke 13:5)

4) Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead.

  • "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

  • "But God commends his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)

  • "If you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." (Romans 10:9)

5) Through prayer, invite Jesus into your heart to become your personal Lord and Savior.

  • "For with the heart (core being) man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:10)

  • "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13)

6) Pray:

  • Dear God, I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ shed His precious blood and died on the cross for my sin. I believe that God raised Him from the dead. I am willing to change, repent and turn away from my sin. I now invite Jesus Christ to come into my heart and life as my personal Lord & Savior.

  • "But as many as received him, to them He gave power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name:" (John 1:12)

  • "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new" [new life begins]. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
