Prayers

Friend, if you died in the next 5 minutes, do you know for sure where you would go? Regardless, of what you’ve been taught or believe, there really is a hell and you don’t want to go there. Trust me!  And yes, there really is a heaven.  A lot of people think that if they are a good person and just live a decent life, that they’ll be okay.  And that’s exactly what the devil wants people to believe.  But The Bible says in the Gospel of John chapter 14 verse 6, that Jesus is the only way we can go to heaven.  The good news is that God made it so easy!  All we need to do is believe in His Son, Jesus, who already paid the price for the sins of all mankind, and that God raised Him from the dead according to Romans chapter 10 verses 9-10.  If you believe this, and would like to accept His plan of salvation, then say this simple prayer out loud (or at least loud enough that you can hear yourself).

Prayer For Salvation

Heavenly Father, I come to you in the Name of Jesus. Your Word says, “Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts 2:21). I am calling on You. I pray and ask Jesus to come into my heart and be Lord over my life according to Romans 10:9-10: “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God has raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” I do that now. I confess that Jesus is Lord, and I believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead. I believe that I am now saved and have become a child of Almight God.  Thank You for receiving me and saving me! Amen.

If you just prayed this prayer, let me be the first to say, “Welcome to the family!”  If you’re anything like I was when I got done praying, you are most likely feeling markedly different inside.  What happened just now is God gave you a brand new spirit.  You are now in Christ Jesus, and according to 2 Corinthians chapter 5 verse 17, you are a new person. All the old stuff is gone! All your sins have been completely washed away! Thank You Jesus!  You may be thinking, “Ok awesome. But now what do I do?”  Number 1 is get a Bible if you don’t already have one.  If you don’t have one, and perhaps can’t afford one, you can go to Bible Gateway Online where you can start your journey in Jesus and God’s Word discovering how good God really is.  I recommend beginning your reading in the New Testament starting with the First Epistle of John a.k.a 1 John.  And number 2, find a good church that preaches and teaches the Bible.  I can’t recommend any particular church or denomination.  Just ask the Lord to show you where He wants you to go. He’ll do it!

I want you to know that God loves you with all that He is, and all that He has! And there is a party going on in Heaven right now because your decision! Amen!
