We pray for many things. One of the most important prayers we will ever pray is the Sinner’s Prayer or Prayer of Salvation. Why is this one so special? Without asking Jesus into our heart, there is no amount of good works, charity, offerings, etc. that we can do to make us right with God. There is and was only one perfect sin offering and His name is Jesus.
If you don’t know that you are heaven bound, there is only one way to know for sure. It is not enough to know about Jesus. You must accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. It’s your choice and it is as simple as that…surrender to Jesus and ask Him into your heart today. We are not promised tomorrow.
Jesus, I know I’m a sinner.
Please forgive me of my sins.
I believe you died for me,
rose from the grave three days later
and are alive today.
Thank you for paying the debt for my sins
so that I can have eternal life.
Please come into my heart,
I make you the Lord of my life.
Teach me how to live for you.
If you’ve just accepted Jesus into your heart, tell someone and find a church that will help you to get to know Jesus and grow in your personal relationship with Him. Most importantly, ask God to reveal Himself to you through His Word and begin reading your bible today.
