Prayer of Salvation – Our First Real Conversation With God
The “prayer of salvation” is the most important prayer we’ll ever pray. When we’re ready to become a Christian, we’re ready to have our first real conversation with God, and these are its components:
- We acknowledge that Jesus Christ is God; that He came to earth as a man in order to live the sinless life that we cannot live; that He died in our place, so that we would not have to pay the penalty we deserve.
- We confess our past life of sin — living for ourselves and not obeying God.
- We admit we are ready to trust Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord.
- We ask Jesus to come into our heart, take up residence there, and begin living through us.
Prayer of Salvation – It Begins With Faith in God
When we pray the prayer of salvation, we’re letting God know we believe His Word is true. By the faith He has given us, we choose to believe in Him. The Bible tells us that “without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6).
So, when we pray, asking God for the gift of salvation, we’re exercising our free will to acknowledge that we believe in Him. That demonstration of faith pleases God, because we have freely chosen to know Him.
Prayer of Salvation – Confessing Our Sin
When we pray the prayer of salvation, we’re admitting that we’ve sinned. As the Bible says of everyone, save Christ alone: “For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
To sin is simply to fall short of the mark, as an arrow that does not quite hit the bull’s-eye. The glory of God that we fall short of is found only in Jesus Christ: “For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” (2 Corinthians 4:6).
The prayer of salvation, then, recognizes that Jesus Christ is the only human who ever lived without sin. “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).
Prayer of Salvation – Professing Faith in Christ as Savior and Lord
With Christ as our standard of perfection, we’re now acknowledging faith in Him as God, agreeing with the Apostle John that: “In the beginning was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made” (John 1:1-3).
Because God could only accept a perfect, sinless sacrifice, and because He knew that we could not possibly accomplish that, He sent His Son to die for us and pay the eternal price. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).

Commonly referred to as the “sinners prayer,” the Christian prayer for salvation is found in Romans 10:9-10. Christians pray for salvation by confessing their sins in acknowledgment of God’s saving plan through His son Jesus Christ. John 3:16 describes God’s love for the world and how He gave His Son Jesus Christ to save humanity.
The Christian prayer for salvation begins by acknowledging that Jesus Christ is Lord. To be saved or born again, a new believer making this prayer agrees with Romans 4:25 that Jesus came to Earth sent by God as a man to live a life without sin and that he died on the cross and resurrected.
The Christian prayer for salvation is a profession of faith in believing that God’s word written in the Bible is true. As a first step toward salvation, a believer seeks redemption from sin and eternal hell according to Hebrews 11:6. The prayer of salvation and confession of sins follows Romans 3:23, which states that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. The lost glory is only found in Jesus Christ as described in 2 Corinthians 4:6.
The Christian prayer for Salvation is about professing that Jesus Christ is the Savior and Lord as written in Romans 10:9. When one accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, he receives the Holy Spirit, which Jesus promised would be sent by God the Father in His name as a helper, comforter and friend according to John 14:26 and Acts 2:38.
Following the Christian prayer for salvation, a new believer begins what the Apostle Paul describes as steps of faith in Romans 4:12.
El Shaddai, God Almighty, we humbly request on this beautiful and glorious day that you bless and reach out to the homes of your people. Touch them, oh gracious Father.
Lead them. Guide them. Walk beside them. Draw them closer to you and closer together as a family, each and everyday. Change their hearts. Help them to hunger and thirst after you.
2 Corinthians 4:4 In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
