Praying man

Today’s prayer is a type of prayer often used to help people with the words in accepting Christ. Does this prayer express the desire of your heart? If it does, we invite you to pray this prayer, either as a first-time expression of faith or as a means of rededication and affirmation.

Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. I ask You to forgive me of my sins so that I might have peace with God and experience eternal life in heaven. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be in accordance with Scripture and in imitation of Christ in whose name we pray. Amen.

This Daily Prayer is from this Daily Encouragement message.


“A Prayer For Being Prepared”

December 12, 2013

Praying man Father, when we were utterly helpless, You sent Jesus at just the right time to die for our sins. Few people are willing to die for a good person, but Jesus died for the good and the bad, even those who nailed Him to the cross. Amazingly, Jesus laid down His life for us while we were still sinners and lived as enemies of the cross. Through Your Holy Spirit You call us to Yourself to begin a wonderful new relationship because Jesus reconciles us to You through His death on the cross that covers our sins. We repent and receive Jesus’ gift of forgiveness, His love and His lordship in our lives. And we see how very much You love us, for You call us Your children and this is what we are! Amen.

See Romans 5:6-11, I John 3:1

“A Prayer Accepting Salvation”

January 17, 2013

Praying man Father, we thank You for sending Jesus to live among us over 2000 years ago. We thank You for His teachings, His sinless life, and for His death on the cross that provides for our salvation.  Each of us has sinned and we know through Scripture that the penalty for our sin is death. So we thank You for Jesus who died instead for our sin. We ask for Your forgiveness as we believe and confess that Jesus is Lord, because salvation comes to us through Christ Jesus our Lord. Thank You for Your gift of salvation.

Salvation prayer based on what is commonly referred to as the Romans Road (Romans 3:23, 6:23, 5:8, 10:8-10)

“A Prayer For Salvation”

July 6, 2012

Here’s a common prayer that expresses faith in God’s plan of salvation through Jesus Christ. If you have not done so already, I urge you to pray this prayer from your heart today.

Praying man“Lord Jesus, I confess that I am a lost sinner. I believe that You came to this earth to seek and to save that which was lost and You died on the cross as a substitute for me and my sin. I place my faith in You and what You have done for me. Forgive me of my sins and cleanse me from unrighteousness.  I receive You into my life and choose this day to follow You and serve You all the days of my life. Thank You for hearing my prayer.”

A Prayer For A New Beginning”

April 17, 2012

Praying manFather I acknowledge that I am a sinner. There is nothing good in me, and there is nothing in You but good. I choose to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ who died for my sins so that I can receive forgiveness. I confess my sins, for they are many. How thankful I am that Your blood covers all my sins, for Your Word indicates that even the foulest of sinners who truly believes that moment from Jesus a pardon receives. I have determined that I will walk with the Lord and follow His Word all the days of my life. I pray this in faith through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.

I developed this prayer as the ABC’s of my salvation prayer.

“A Prayer Of Confession Of Sin”

April 7, 2011

Praying man Father, we confess our sins to You.  You are the One who cleanses our hearts so that we stand righteous before You through Jesus Christ our Lord.  It is not in ourselves that we are made righteous, for our righteousness is as filthy rags.  It is in Jesus’ death and resurrection that we are forgiven of our sins.  It is not by works of righteousness; it is not by doing that which is seen by others as commendable, but it is according to Your grace and mercy that we are saved, by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

December 16, 2010

Thankful manJesus, thank you for loving me.  I admit that I am a sinner. I believe You are the promised Messiah who came to this earth to die for my sins. Please forgive me of my sins and come into my life. I receive You as my Saviour and will follow You as my Lord. Thank You for hearing my prayer.  Amen.

A Prayer Of Rededication”

December 10, 2010

Thankful manFather, we are grateful to be Your children. It is not by our own goodness, giftings, or generosity that we can buy or earn this standing. It is because of Jesus who came in earthly form so that He could reach His own people and release them from their sins. Though many still turn away from the Gospel message we choose to believe and gratefully declare that we are the children of God. Nothing can compare with such privilege or power as we make our earthly journey. In the name of Jesus we reaffirm and joyfully proclaim our decision to follow You all the days of our lives.  Amen.

“A Prayer Of Reception”

Jesus! I do now receive You, more than all in You I find.
You have granted me forgiveness, I am Yours, and You are mine.

(Adapted from hymn “Jesus What A friend Of Sinners”)

“A Prayer Of Preparation”

May 4, 2010

“Lord Jesus, I confess that I am a sinner.  I believe that You came to this earth and died on the cross as a substitute for me.  I place my faith in You and what You have done for me.  I receive You into my life today and ask You to forgive me of my sins.  I choose this day to follow You and walk in Your ways according to the Bible. Thank You for seeing my need and hearing my prayer of salvation.” As we see the day approaching help us to be fully prepared for the day when we will stand and give account for the choices we make in this life.  We know that preparation begins the day we commit our lives to You, but many other choices will confront our faith along life’s pathway.  May our faith stand the test of time and our devotion to You be evident in this life so that we will be able to rejoice in Christ’s words of personal commendation, “Well done good and faithful servant.”
