Prayer for salvation
The Bible tells us that God created men to be together with him. The plan was, from God’s side, that everyone should live in a relationship to him. God gave people the gift of free will, and since they decided to disobey God, what we call sin entered human nature.
God, who is a holy God, could not be near the humans anymore because of their sin, but His love for the ones he created never faded. He could not stand watching his children wandering around without hope. He decided to send his own Son, to pay the ultimate price by giving his own life as a perfect sacrifice. His blood is strong enough to cover all the sin of all the humans. All he requires is that we say yes to him.
He has promised that he will give us a new life and help us avoid sin and death in our daily life. Millions upon millions have experienced that he is everything that he says he is. It all starts with saying Yes to him!
If you want to receive Jesus, you can pray this prayer right now:
“God, I come to you, believing that the blood of Jesus has made a way for me to come back to you. I want to give my life to you. I believe that you created me for love, and for a relationship with you. I confess that you know what’s best for me, and I want to follow your way. I repent of my sin, and I declare that I belong to you. Amen.”
These words by themselves are not magical. The “magical” event happened that day, when Jesus gave his life. By receiving it you will begin to see changes in your life. Now it’s very important to get hold of a Bible and get to know more about the God of creation. Getting Christian friends who can walk side by side with you in your walk of faith is also essential. Welcome to your new life!
Prayer for healing
The bible tells us that Jesus did not only carry our sins to the cross, but also our sicknesses and our pain. Christians have experienced through decades how the name of Jesus has brought healing and restauration to their bodies and souls. If you need healing, you can pray this prayer:
“Heavenly father, I believe that what Jesus did on the cross was a perfect work of salvation and restauration, and that by his stripes we are healed. I ask for the blood of Jesus to come over my body and bring healing. I pray with faith in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.”
It can also be good to have someone else pray for you, but the healing is not in what you do or how you pray, but in the name of Jesus spoken over your sickness with faith. If you have experienced healing, we would love to hear your testimony!
