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)
Dear Lord Jesus , I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior.
Patience Prayer Heavenly Father, remove anything in me that will cause me to make rash decisions . Give me the patience to handle big and small decisions in different areas of my life.

1 His Name “ Jesus ” Means Saviour The name Jesus comes from the Hebrew Jehoshua, meaning “Jehovah saves”. Jesus was truly our Saviour as he hung on the cross, for his death is our one and only means of salvation from sin and wrath. But God’s kindness (or grace) accepts the punishment of Christ instead of our own.
To truly put God first you have to let go of what others think and follow your heart. This means letting go of what your parents, spouse, kids, boss, and friends think. When you put God first , you give yourself a voice. You express yourself in a way that is true to you.
Tips When talking to God make sure you do so in a way that feels most comfortable to you. When writing to God , make sure to use pen and paper. It’s ideal to find a quiet space to talk to God . Read your religious scripture if that is your source of faith. To talk to God , open up your heart.
Tips Forgive yourself. Remember there is no limit on forgiveness. Change your environment. Know one thing that because of our sins Jesus was wounded, beaten because of the evil we did. Realize you are the only one who can change yourself (put on the armor of God ). Believe things will change.
Guidance Prayer O Lord, my God , help me to trust you with my decisions and my future. Let me lean on you with all my heart instead of relying on my own imperfect understanding. Give me clear guidance in my life, Lord.
O God of peace, who hast taught us that in returning and rest we shall be saved, in quietness and confidence shall be our strength: By the might of thy Spirit lift us, we pray thee, to thy presence, where we may be still and know that thou art God ; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen .
Choose a day, or a specific time during the day that you can sit quietly before God and meditate on Scripture, pray and be still. When you do this, you will see past the noise and hear God’s voice .
The necessity of prayer for the realization of salvation is brought to light in the acts and teachings of Jesus. Thus, He exhorted His disciples to pray always and not loose heart. If Holy Mass is the highest form of Christian prayer , it must be of absolute necessity for any Christian that worth the name.
Just keep filling your mind with thoughts of His love , lifted from His Word. Trust me, God loves you the same way He loves Jesus. This is the second way you respond to God’s love . To “live” in this context means “remain, stay, dwell, continue”, amongst others.
