Lord Jesus, for too long I’ve kept you out of my life. I know that I am a sinner and that I cannot save myself. No longer will I close the door when I hear you knocking. By faith I gratefully receive your gift of salvation. I am ready to trust you as my Lord and Savior. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for coming to earth. I believe you are the Son of God who died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead on the third day. Thank you for bearing my sins and giving me the gift of eternal life. I believe your words are true. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus, and be my Savior. Amen.
If you said this prayer with repentance in your heart you are now a child of God. I encourage you to find a church that will embrace you and, teach you about Jesus. He died for you so it’s imperative that you know who He is. My prayer for you as a new Christian is that you would know the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit intimately. Follow Jesus. Turn from your old life and embrace the grace God has given you. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.
