The Sinner’s Prayer –
The Sinner's Prayer is a verbal contract between you and the living Lord God Almighty. It is as binding as God’s Word is to us. When you say this, know you are saying it to God alone. Speak it out loud so you can hear yourself, or at least very loudly in your own head deliberately. Know and trust that the living Lord Jesus Christ is watching you and listening to you eagerly. He has been waiting for you to come to Him.
Lord God Almighty, I know that you are holy and all good. I know that You love me. I know that my sin separates me from you, a holy God. Lord God I am a sinner. I have done wrong things, said wrong things, and thought wrong things. I haven’t always done what I should do, either. Lord God, thank you for sending your Son, Jesus Christ to live on the earth and die, taking the punishment that I deserve for all of my sins against You, the holy God. Lord Jesus Christ, thank You for loving me. I ask You Jesus, take all of my sins that I have ever committed and ever will commit and put them on Your cross so that I won’t bear them any more. Thank you Lord Jesus. I trust Your Word when You say that “if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” 2 Cor 5:17 And “as far as the east is from the west, so far” have You removed my transgressions from me. Psalm 103:12 And Though my sins were like scarlet, now they are “as white as snow” Isaiah 1:18 Jesus I make You Lord over my life. I give you control. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit that I would live for You now and always. Teach me, show me, guide me, grow me. Fill me with Your love, Protect me from evil, and Fill me with Your Holy Spirit. I choose to live for you according to Your Word and Holy Spirit for your glory, purpose and delight. Thank you for making me Your child!! I love You! Praise be to the Lord Jesus Christ! Amen.
If you sincerely meant what you said to the living Lord Jesus Christ, then God has made you His Child. Making God your Lord is part of the “contract”. You are now under the covenant of love of and for God. (John 15)
God says that the angels in heaven are rejoicing over you!! (Luke 15:10) God is pleased that you chose to be adopted by Him! God Himself has made you His beloved and cherished child! “Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His Name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God. John 1:12-13 ”
If you have deeply chosen to love and serve God on His terms, submitting your sin to Him, trusting Jesus as your only way to God the Father, then Jesus says you are born again. “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, 'You must be born again.'” John 3:5-7 “For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.” 1 Peter 1:23
“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” 1 John 3:1
Congratulations!! You are in the family of God!
Please Let us know! I prayed!
If you would prefer praying a different prayer straight from the Bible, you can pray to the Lord God Almighty Psalm 51. And read about Psalm 51. Most importantly, God just wants you to come to Him as you are and where you are. There is no magic in the prayer, but there is power in God’s Word of Truth and in your verbal and active submission to the Lord Jesus Christ.
I choose life for my soul.
Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. James 4:7
