Prayer Of Salvation
Prayer of Salvation - My First Real Talk With God
The "Prayer of Salvation" is the most important prayer you will ever pray.
When your ready to accept Jesus, you're ready to have your first real talk with God
Here is the Conversation
"I acknowledge you Jesus Christ as God; that you Jesus came to earth as a man in order to live the sinless life that we cannot live; that you died in my place, so that I would not have to pay the penalty I deserve.
I confess my past life of sin -- living for myself and not obeying God.
I admit I am ready to accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.
I ask you Jesus to come into my heart, take up residence there, and begin living through me."
Romans 10 vs 9 and 10
9. If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved .
What Just Happened?
When we pray the prayer of salvation, we're letting God know we believe His Word is true. By the faith He has given us, we choose to believe in Him. The Bible tells us that "without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him"
So, when we pray, asking God for the gift of salvation, we're exercising our free will to acknowledge that we believe in Him.
