The Bible says, “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.” – Romans 10:9 (New International Version)
There is a simple prayer you can pray if you are ready to accept Jesus as Lord of your life. You can pray it alone or in the company of other Christians – but however you pray it, you can be sure that there will be rejoicing in Heaven because you have been saved:
“I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.”
-Luke 15:7 (New International Version)
Pray this Prayer:
Father, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now, I have been living for myself and that is wrong, I need you in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross at Calvary, and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my King, my Lord, and my Saviour. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow you all the days of my life. Those days are in your hands. I ask this in Jesus’ precious and Holy name. Amen.
