How do I pray

A prayer for salvation


Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 10:32-33

If you would like to ask Jesus to come into your heart but you do not know what to say, then here is a prayer to follow. Just talk to Him from your heart and He will change your life!

Begin prayer

Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and I cannot save myself. I need you. I repent of my sin, and turn to You in faith, believing You died on a cross for my sin and rose again from the dead. I ask You to come into my heart and save me. There is no other way to heaven. You are "The Way, The Truth, and The Life." (John 14:6Bible quoteJesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.John 14 verse 6)

I thank you for dying on the cross for me. Your word says "Whomever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Acts 2:21Bible quoteAnd it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.Acts 2 verse 21)

Please come into my life and my heart according to Romans 10:9-10Bible quote(verse 9) That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

(verse 10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.Romans 10 verses 9-10
.

I accept you right now. Be my Lord and my Saviour. I repent of my sins. Help me to change and to live for You. Thank you Jesus.

I have confessed with my mouth and believe with my heart that I am born again. Heaven is my home and I am a child of the Almighty God. I am saved! AMEN

Confession of Faith and Position in Christ

Dear Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that there is only one true and living God, who exists as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. I recognize Christ Jesus as the Son of the Living God, the Word that became flesh and dwelt among us. Jesus, You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power, for You have created all things and in You, all things have their being.

Father God, You have proven Your love for me, because, when I was still in sin and rebellion, Your Son, Jesus Christ, died for me. When I accepted You, Jesus, as my Savior, You forgave me all my sins and redeemed me from the kingdom of darkness, translating me to Your kingdom, and I am made right with God. All charges that were against me have been nailed to the cross and cancelled, therefore the devil has nothing with which to accuse me. Apart from You, Jesus, I can do nothing, and I declare my dependence on You. I was saved by Your grace, it was a gift and not the result of any works on my part. When I was saved, my spirit came to life and is now under the control of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus, You came to set the captives free: those who are bound by sin, or psychic and occult powers. Jesus, You have all authority in and on the earth, and You have conquered and disarmed all evil principalities and powers. You, Jesus, made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. In You, Jesus, I have authority over Satan and all his demons and they are subject to me. Jesus, I am covered and protected by Your precious blood.

I declare that You, Jesus, are my Lord and my God. I come to You, Jesus, looking only to You as my deliverer and healer. You know all my special needs and concerns. I RENOUNCE all COUNTERFEIT GIFTS and works of Satan in my life. I claim Your Word, which says, "All who call upon the name of the Lord, shall be set free [saved]." (Romans 10:13Bible quoteFor whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.Romans 10 verse 13) I call on You now, Lord Jesus Christ, to set me free.

Father, I accept Your Word as my standard for righteousness and daily living. I will study Your Word and renew my mind by that living Word, because You say, "As a man thinks in his heart, so is he." (Proverbs 23:7Bible quoteFor as he thinketh in his heart, so [is] he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart [is] not with thee.Proverbs 23 verse 7) I now take control of my thought life, and stand against Satan's deceptions and lies by taking every thought captive in obedience to Christ. I choose to walk in the light and truth, because the truth will set me free.

I will use my spiritual weapons (the Word of God, the Blood, the Name of Jesus, praise and prayer), which are mighty in God to tear down all strongholds of the enemy in my life. I stand strong in You, Lord Jesus Christ, and resist Satan and all his evil schemes. I BIND and REBUKE all evil spirits and powers of darkness that would seek to interfere with time of ministry, specifically, the spirits of doubt, deception, unbelief, confusion, mind control and fear. I loose myself from your control. I take my position in Christ and command you, Satan, and all your demons to leave me now, in Jesus' name.

I choose to give up all attempts to run my own life, putting no confidence in the flesh, and I now submit to You, Father, and Your servant who is ministering to me. I trust myself to Your care, Lord Jesus Christ, as much as I can at this time. Dear Holy Spirit, I ask You to help me in this time of prayer and inward looking. Please reveal to me every area of my life that has (or continues to be) been given over to the enemy. I choose to crucify my flesh and walk by Your guidance, Holy Spirit, not giving into the desires of my flesh. I will present my body as an instrument of righteousness, a living and holy sacrifice, which is my spiritual duty. I choose to humble myself and share whatever God reveals to me (with safe, appropriate persons that God designates). Holy Spirit, I ask you to guide me to all truth (to receive it), empower me to live above sin, in Jesus' name. Amen.
