A salvation prayer , known by many Christians as a “Sinners Prayer ,” is a prayer one would say to repent from sin, ask God for forgiveness, confess belief in Jesus Christ, and accept him as Lord and Savior. Saying a salvation prayer is the first step in your relationship with God.
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)
“But your iniquities have separated between you and your God , and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear .” “Now we know that God heareth not sinners : but if any man be a worshipper of God , and doeth his will, him he heareth.”
Still others repent of sin at their bedside after reading the Scriptures. God speaks to the sinner’s heart no matter where we are. But there is only “One Way” to salvation, and that is through the Lord Jesus Christ (John 14:6).
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior.
Salvation is made possible by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, which in the context of salvation is referred to as the “atonement”. Christian soteriology ranges from exclusive salvation to universal reconciliation concepts.
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.
Asking Jesus into one’s heart is a description of personal conversion used in evangelicalism. It is often regarded as a component of the sinner’s prayer. Moyer argues that the phrase “often conveys the idea that one is saved by saying a prayer instead of trusting Christ .”
The Eastern prayer of the heart , the Jesus Prayer , says: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.” Many Christians, such as Joan of Arc, have died with the one word “Jesus” on their lips. Athos, is the invocation: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on us sinners.”
His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents , that he was born blind?” Jesus replied: Neither this man nor his parents sinned ,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him. As long as it is day, we must do the works of him who sent me.
All sins shall be forgiven , except the sin against the Holy Ghost; for Jesus will save all except the sons of perdition. What must a man do to commit the unpardonable sin ? He must receive the Holy Ghost, have the heavens opened unto him, and know God , and then sin against him.
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land .” It is with good reason. Below is a list of ten vital sins of wickedness that are destroying our land .
