Confess that you are a sinner

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear.

You have a desire to repent

testifying to Jews, and also to Greeks, repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

You want Jesus Christ to save you

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

 John 1:12
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:

that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
How to pray to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior

Dear Lord Jesus,

I know that I am a sinner and I need Your forgiveness. Please forgive me of all my sins. I believe that You died for my sins on the Cross and that You rose three days later. I want to turn from my sins. I now ask that You come into my heart and my life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior.

In Jesus' name, Amen

Romans 10:13
For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
