Image for a prayer to accept Jesus Christ as Saviour

Accepting Christ

There is no greater gift than a relationship with God for eternity. If we ever have the privilege of leading someone to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour and baptising them in name of the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit, here is a prayer.

(See Chinese versions: 简体中文接受基督 繁體中文 > 接受基督)


Matthew 28:19-20 NIV  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

A salvation prayer to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour

Lord God

I confess that I have spent many years following the patterns of this world and doing things my own way, and have not acknowledged You as my one true Creator and Lord. I have chased many faulty ideals and false gods. Please forgive me.

Romans 12:2 NIV  Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Isaiah 45:5 ESV  I am the Lord, and there is no other, besides me there is no God…

Today, I turn away from those things and commit to following You alone.

Thank you for sending Jesus Christ, Your perfect and beloved Son, to pay the price for my sins by dying on the cross so that I may be reconciled with You. He rose from the dead after three days, through the power of the Holy Spirit, and is now with You in glory.

Ephesians 1:7-10 ESV  In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.

Thank you for Your great love, sacrifice, and mercy towards me.

Today, I accept Jesus as my personal Saviour and Lord. I die to my old way of life and thinking and commit to following Your teachings in the Bible. I humbly offer my life to You to be made new, more and more like Jesus Christ each day. Please purify my heart and give me a clean heart and spirit so that I can follow Jesus fully and stay away from the devil.

Ephesians 4:22-24 ESV  to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

As I am baptised with water, I invite the Holy Spirit to give me the new life that Jesus died to give me.

Acts 2:38 ESV  And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

I pray all this in Jesus’ name, amen.
