Proverbs Chapter 16 : 21-30 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 21 The wise in heart shall be called prudent. Pleasantness of the lips promotes instruction.
  • 22 Understanding is a fountain of life to one who has it, but the punishment of fools is their folly.
  • 23 The heart of the wise instructs his mouth, and adds learning to his lips.
  • 24 Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
  • 25 There is a way which seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.
  • 26 The appetite of the laboring man labors for him; for his mouth urges him on.
  • 27 A worthless man devises mischief. His speech is like a scorching fire.
  • 28 A perverse man stirs up strife. A whisperer separates close friends.
  • 29 A man of violence entices his neighbor, and leads him in a way that is not good.
  • 30 One who winks his eyes to plot perversities, one who compresses his lips, is bent on evil.

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.
