  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 1 For this cause I, Paul, am the prisoner of Christ Jesus on behalf of you Gentiles,
  • 2 if it is so that you have heard of the administration of that grace of God which was given me toward you;
  • 3 how that by revelation the mystery was made known to me, as I wrote before in few words,
  • 4 by which, when you read, you can perceive my understanding in the mystery of Christ;
  • 5 which in other generations was not made known to the children of men, as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit;
  • 6 that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, and fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of his promise in Christ Jesus through the Good News,
  • 7 of which I was made a servant, according to the gift of that grace of God which was given me according to the working of his power.
  • 8 To me, the very least of all saints, was this grace given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,
  • 9 and to make all men see what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God, who created all things through Jesus Christ;
  • 10 to the intent that now through the assembly the manifold wisdom of God might be made known to the principalities and the powers in the heavenly places,

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obiendience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
