Prayer of Salvation at Easter

Dear Lord,

Thank you so much for your great love for us. It truly is beyond our finite comprehension. We are desperate for you. Thank you for coming to this world as the spotless Lamb of God, taking away the sins of the world. Thank you for dying on the cross and shedding your blood for us.

You tell us in Romans 3:23 that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 6:23 reminds us that “the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. You also say in 1 John 1:9 that “if we confess our sins, you are faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us of all unrighteousness.” My sin separates me from you, Holy God. I confess my sins to you and ask that you would forgive me for my sin. 

You say in Romans 10:9 that “if I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I believe in my heart that God raised him from the dead, then I will be saved.” Lord, I confess with my mouth that you are Lord, I ask you to come into my life. Thank you for the promise in Romans 10:13 that says, “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Thank you for the price you paid on the cross. Thank you for eternal life in Christ. 

In Jesus’ name, amen.
