Salvation prayer is a prayer to God asking to be saved. As Christians we are not always on the right path. When we stray from Gods path, that is when we need to pray and ask our Heavenly Father for salvation.
Salvation can mean different things, to different people. For some it is not just about asking to be saved from a particular situation. It is also about getting closer to God. Some prayers for forgiveness include:
“Loving Lord Jesus, for too long have I kept you out of my life. I accept that I am a sinner and that I cannot save myself. Lord, no longer will I shut the door when I hear you knocking. Father, by faith I happily accept your gift of salvation. God, I am ready to trust you as my Lord and Savior. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for coming down to earth. I accept you are the Son of God who died on the cross for the sake of my sins and rose from the dead on the third day. Thank you for taking over my sins and granting me the gift of eternal life. I believe your words are true. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus, and be my Savior. Amen.”
Simple Salvation Prayer
“Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for my own sake and that is wrong. Lord, I need You in my life; I need You in my life. God, I believe the completed work of Your Son Jesus Christ by giving His life for mine on the cross at Calvary. Father, I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely attainable to me through this sacrifice. Please come into my life now, Lord. Make your residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. Father, from this day forward, I will no longer be led by sin, or the wish to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
