PRAYER OF SALVATION
The world can be an overwhelming place, but it does not have to be. Giving your life to Jesus and accepting Him as your Lord and Savior releases you from being in this world all by yourself. The first step is to surrender to Jesus and let Him save you and begin a great work in you. Or maybe you did ask Jesus into your life before but have not lived to honor His sacrifice. You can rededicate your life to Him today. All it takes is saying a simple prayer out loud from your heart to receive God’s mercy and grace. Feel free to add your own words as you talk to your Savior.
Lord, I thank you for wanting to save me.
You took all the punishment for me, so that I can be in right standing
with God the Father.
You would have done it, even if I was the only person on earth.
I love you and I thank you.
I have made many mistakes and dishonored you.
I understand that this was sin, and I am truly sorry.
I confess that I am nothing without you.
I want to be saved.
Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God and that you died on the cross,
so that I can be set free.
I believe you rose from the dead on the third day, and by doing that,
all my sins from the past, present, and future are washed away.
You took my sin that was punishable
by being separated from God the Father forever
and took my punishment for me.
I thank you. I love you. I believe in you with my whole heart,
and I surrender myself to you.
You are my Lord and Savior forever.
Congratulations! You have just made the most important decision of your life! Jesus has taken you out of the darkness and made you a citizen of Heaven! Let your heart remain open while the Lord helps you discover your destiny and mission on this earth as a child of God. And never forget to thank Him every day for your salvation and for loving you so much. Praise God! Welcome to God’s family! He has been waiting for you with open arms!
