The Prayer of Salvation

Heavenly Father,

I come before You today, acknowledging my brokenness and need for a savior. I confess my sins and recognize that I have fallen short of Your glory. However, I firmly believe, with all my heart, that Your Son, Jesus Christ, died on the cross for my sins and rose again on the third day, defeating death and the power of sin.

I sincerely repent of my sins and turn away from my old ways, pleading that You would cleanse me and make me new. I invite Jesus into my heart and life as my Lord and Savior. I desire to follow Him and obey His commands, living a life that brings honor and glory to Your name.

I am aware that I cannot do this on my own, and thus, I humbly ask for Your guidance, strength, and wisdom every day. Help me to grow in my faith and become more like Your Son, Jesus. I give thanks for the gift of salvation and the promise of eternal life in Your presence.

This is my prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, my Savior and Lord. Amen.
