Prayer for Accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior

Lord Jesus, I am humbling myself before You. Thank you so much for loving me. Thank you for your love for an imperfect person like me. I confess that I am a sinner, that if I continue living in sin, I will be separated from You forever because, as you said in the Scripture, the wages of sin is death. 

I’m asking for Your forgiveness for all my sins. I know I’ve made a million mistakes in my life, and God, I do not deserve Your forgiveness but thank You so much for giving me grace. Thank You for letting Your Son, Jesus Christ, die on the cross for my sins because You love me so much, and it is Your desire for me to spend eternity with You.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, because You sacrificed Your throne in heaven to go down on Earth, to become a man and pay the penalty for my sins. You sacrificed Your life so that I could live. Thank You that You rose again after three days. You, indeed, are the Son of God and the Messiah. And because of this, I can live an abundant life- a life with purpose. 

Today, I decide to accept You as my Lord and Savior. I accept You into my life. I accept the gift of forgiveness and eternal life. I repent for all my sins, and I understand that this gift is a privilege from You. Only through grace, I am saved, not through my good works. And to be able to produce good works, I should have a personal relationship with You first.  

Thank You, Lord Jesus, because all my sins are paid for and forgiven. I am now a new creation, a new person in God’s eyes, and I now have the privilege of becoming called His child. Thank You because I know I will spend my eternal life with You. 

I surrender everything to You, my Lord and Savior. I am making the decision to trust and follow You all the days of my life. In Jesus’ name, amen.
