There are no magical words to pray—it’s more about the condition of your heart.
Some important components can be remembered with ABC:
Admit that you’re a sinner in need of a Savior.
Believe that Jesus died for you and rose again.
Commit to live the rest of your life for Him.
AN EXAMPLE OF THE PRAYER OF SALVATION:
“Heavenly Father, I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness and please forgive me of all my sins. Make me brand new. I believe Jesus died for me and rose again so I could live for you. I desire to turn from my sins. I now invite You to come into my heart and life.
Fill me with your Spirit so I am able to know you, serve you, and follow you the rest of my life, as my Lord and Savior.
My life is not my own—today I give it to you.
Thank you for new life!
In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.”
