Matthew Chapter 14 : 1-10 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 1 At that time, Herod the tetrarch heard the report concerning Jesus,
  • 2 and said to his servants, "This is John the Baptizer. He is risen from the dead. That is why these powers work in him."
  • 3 For Herod had laid hold of John, and bound him, and put him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife.
  • 4 For John said to him, "It is not lawful for you to have her."
  • 5 When he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.
  • 6 But when Herod's birthday came, the daughter of Herodias danced among them and pleased Herod.
  • 7 Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatever she should ask.
  • 8 She, being prompted by her mother, said, "Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptizer."
  • 9 The king was grieved, but for the sake of his oaths, and of those who sat at the table with him, he commanded it to be given,
  • 10 and he sent and beheaded John in the prison.

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.
