A PRAYER TO RECEIVE
Dear Lord Jesus, I am a sinner. But I believe You died
in my place on the cross and were raised to life again.
Forgive me of all my sins. I turn my back on my past sinful
life - vowing never to return to it. I renounce the
devil and all of his works. I open the door of my heart
to You. I invite You to come in and rule my life. I give
up all rights to my life, and I submit to Your lordship.
I receive You, by faith, as my Lord and Savior. I receive
everything You provided for me on the cross. Show me your
plan for my life. Thank you for dying in my place on the
cross and forgiving all my sins. Thank You for making me
Your child, and for giving me eternal life with You forever.
