John Chapter 11 : 11-20 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 11 He said these things, and after that, he said to them, "Our friend, Lazarus, has fallen asleep, but I am going so that I may awake him out of sleep."
  • 12 The disciples therefore said, "Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will recover."
  • 13 Now Jesus had spoken of his death, but they thought that he spoke of taking rest in sleep.
  • 14 So Jesus said to them plainly then, "Lazarus is dead.
  • 15 I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, so that you may believe. Nevertheless, let's go to him."
  • 16 Thomas therefore, who is called Didymus, said to his fellow disciples, "Let's go also, that we may die with him."
  • 17 So when Jesus came, he found that he had been in the tomb four days already.
  • 18 Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, about fifteen stadia away.
  • 19 Many of the Jews had joined the women around Martha and Mary, to console them concerning their brother.
  • 20 Then when Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, but Mary stayed in the house.

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.
