This may be the most significant prayer you have ever prayed! This is the essential starting place for every Christian — the relationship with Jesus which gives us a relationship with Almighty, Holy God the Father.
Dear Lord Jesus,
I believe You are real. I can see now that You love me. I know I’m not perfect and I have made some mistakes, but I ask for Your forgiveness.
I believe that You took my place and gave Your life for me. And that You rose from the dead.
I want to stop living my way and invite You into my life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and as my Saviour. From now on my life is Yours and I want to live for you.
Now tell someone else you know and trust, who has a personal, living faith in Jesus, that you have prayed this prayer and talk through with them what comes next — receiving their help and encouragement.
