Prayer of Salvation
I confess … I have sinned against you, and the penalty for sin is death.
Your Son paid the penalty for my sin, when He died and shed His blood so that I may be cleansed.
Forgive me, for all the sins I have done against you and forgive me for hurting others. I also forgive everyone who has hurt and sinned against me.
Please come into my life, change me
and be my LORD and SAVIOR.
Thank you Father for saving me and thank you for writing my name in your Book of Life.
