Prayer for Salvation
is the next step
when you decide that you want to get right with God
and go to heaven when you die.
Scroll down for the prayer...
Saying a prayer doesn't save you from hell.
Following Jesus is the indicator of salvation.
We are not saved by works
BUT works are the
fruit of a heart that is truly saved from hell.
If you want to know if you are saved,
read 1 John 2:3-6.
“And how can we be sure that we belong to God?
By looking within ourselves:
are we really trying to do what he wants us to?
Someone may say,
‘I am a Christian; I am on my way to heaven;
I belong to Christ.’
if he doesn’t do what Christ tells him to,
he is a liar.
But those who do what Christ tells them to will learn to
love God more and more.
That is the way to know
whether or not you are a Christian.
Anyone who says he is a Christian should live
as Christ did.”

"For all have sinned and come short
of the glory of God."
"For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God
is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord."
"For God so loved the world
that he gave his only begotten son
that whoever believes in him
shall not perish but have eternal life."
"I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man comes to the Father, but by me."
What must you do to be saved?
We must believe: that Jesus died for our sins, and that he arose from the grave.
We must ask Jesus to forgive us for our sins.
We must accept Jesus as our Savior and our Lord.
When Jesus is your Lord, then you seek
to make decisions based on the Bible
which is God's Word.
A Prayer for Salvation
A Prayer to Accept Jesus as Savior
Dear Heavenly Father,
I believe that Jesus died for me.
I believe that Jesus paid for my sins on the cross.
I believe that Jesus rose from the dead.
I ask you to forgive me of my sins. I ask you to wash me clean of all sin.
I put my faith and trust in Jesus as my only hope for living eternally with you in heaven.
I ask Jesus to be my Savior and my Lord. I want to live my life for Christ.
I understand that my salvation is not based on my works but on the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross.
Thank you for saving me!
Note that the Prayer of Salvation
is often called the Sinners Prayer.
