Prayer for Salvation

(one variation)

Heavenly Father, have mercy on me, a sinner. I believe in You and that Your Word is true. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God, and that He died on the cross so that I may now have forgiveness for my sins and eternal life. I know that without You in my heart, my life is meaningless.

I believe in my heart that You, Lord God, raised Christ from the dead. Please, Jesus, forgive me for every sin I have ever committed or done in my heart. Please, Lord Jesus, forgive me and come into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior today. I need You to be my Father and my Friend.

I give You my life and ask You to take full control from this moment on; I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.



If you have prayed this prayer, please start reading the Bible, (in John, to begin with) to get to know more about Jesus and Father God. Find a church that has sound Biblical teaching that you can join and grow in your faith.  The bottom of our Resources page includes a few links that may also help answer some of your questions you may have.  Christianity is a lifestyle, not a single prayer, and none of us can grow in our faith and relationship with God in isolation. And when we run across each other in eternity, please be sure to introduce me to your child(ren).
