Suggested Prayer to Receive Jesus Christ
Dear Lord and
I know that I have sinned against You and that I am not living within
Your plan. For this I ask forgiveness. I believe that You died for me
and in doing so, paid the penalty for my sin. I am willing to turn from
sin and now ask You to come into my heart and life as my personal Savior.
Help me now, to follow and obey You as Lord and to find Your perfect
will for my life.
you prayed this prayer and believe it, you now have eternal life!
When you called
upon the Lord, He listened. Your sins have all been forgiven (Colossians
1:14), you became a child of God (John 1:12) and you now have eternal
life (John 3:16).
Do not be
concerned with your feelings, for they may change sometimes under the
pressure of daily life. Place your trust in your Heavenly Father "casting
all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you." (1 Peter
5:7) Stay in daily contact with the Lord through prayer and the reading
of His Word, the Bible. Join in fellowship with other believers so that
