The Sinner’s Prayer (Consecration Prayer and Salvation Prayer) is an evangelical Christian term referring to any prayer of repentance, prayed by individuals who feel convicted of the presence of sin in their lives and have the desire to form or renew a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. It is a popular phenomenon in evangelical circles.
‘O’ God! by thy most particular attributes by Thy powerful glory, by Thy Great names, by infallibility of Thy prophets, by the light of thy friends, by the blood of Thy Martyrs, by the ink of Thy learned personalities, by the supplications of thy pious persons, and by the invocation of Thy needy persons we beseech Thee for the increase in knowledge, health of the body, increase in the life tenure, for thy obedience, abundance in the sustenance, repentance before death, ease at the time of death, forgiveness after death, the light in the grave, redemption from the hell fire, admission in the paradise and rescue from all calamities of the world and punishment of the next world by the grace of the Prophet and his best, pure and infallible progeny.
The Sinner’s Prayer
Lord Jesus, for too long I’ve kept you out of my life. I know that I am a sinner and that I cannot save myself. No longer will I close the door when I hear you knocking. By faith I gratefully receive your gift of salvation. I am ready to trust you as my Lord and Savior. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for coming to earth. I believe you are the Son of God who died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead on the third day. Thank you for bearing my sins and giving me the gift of eternal life. I believe your words are true. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus, and be my Savior. Amen.

A Biblical Prayer for Salvations
Lord, I pray that You would teach me to yield myself to Your Spirit as I pray for the salvation of those who do not know you. Holy Spirit, teach me to trust You as a living person who leads my life and my prayers. I long to see Your power in my life just as the Apostle Paul did as he reached out to the lost (1 Corinthians 2:2-5). I thank You that You indwell, seal, sanctify, and empower me. You guide me, teach me, and pray through me. Help me to partner with You as I use Your Word in praying for the salvation of my family, friends, and co-workers. Make me sensitive to Your promptings and teach me to partner with You in praying Your Word over those who are searching for You.
Jesus, I want to prioritize prayer for others just as You did on earth. You withdrew to lonely places to pray (Mark 1:35, Luke 5:16). You were faithful in intercession and even prayed whole nights. Teach me to be faithful in prayer. Help me to remember the lost when I pray [Bring before the Lord five unsaved family members or friends]. Show them that the free gift of eternal life is in You alone (Romans 6:23, John 3:16). Help me to be Your witness and love them. Help me to show warm-hearted acts of kindness towards them. I know that love comes from You (1 John 4:7). Help me to show love towards everyone I meet. Love always hopes and believes (Pray all of 1 Corinthians 13). Help me to be active in sharing my faith (Philemon 6). I thank You that I can be Your witness everywhere I go (Acts 1:8).
I thank you that the darkness vanishes as I pray for the lost. Thank you for convicting the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment (John 16:8). I pray that you will soften the hearts of [Name one-by-one others who do not know Christ]. Remove the spiritual blindness from their eyes, and help them to understand the truth about You. Bring them to repentance and salvation (Acts 3:19). I believe that You are working in their hearts even as I pray. Help me to let my light shine before men, that they may see my good deeds and glorify my Father in heaven (Mathew 5:16). Help me to be Your light in their lives. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Sinner’s Prayer From Scripture
(Psalm 51, King David)
“Have mercy on me, O God,
according to Your unfailing love;
according to Your great compassion
blot out my transgressions.
Wash away all my iniquity
and cleanse me from my sin.
For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is always before me.
Against You, You only, have I sinned
and done what is evil in Your sight,
so that You are proved right when You speak
and justified when You judge.
Surely I have been a sinner from birth,
sinful from the time my mother conceived me…
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
wash me and I will be whiter than snow…
Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me from Your presence
or take Your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit to sustain me.
Then will I teach transgressors Your ways,
and sinners will turn back to You.
The Sinners Prayer
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. At this moment I trust Christ alone 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. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Father, I take you at your word. I thank you that I can face death now that you are my Savior. Thank you for the assurance that you will walk with me through the deep valley. Thank you for hearing this prayer. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Lord we pray that she may come to know the Lord Jesus as her own personal Saviour – and that she may grow in grace and become a truly spiritual woman, who puts the Lord Jesus first, in every area of her life.
Lord give us wisdom as we teach her and train her in spiritual matters, and Lord I pray that we may be careful to diligently bring her up in the ways of the Lord – for You have promised that if we bring up our children in the fear and nurture of God, when they are old they will not depart from it.. and so Lord I claim that promise for my daughter and pray that you would give us the ability and wisdom to secure her in the knowledge of the scripture – with a clear understanding of WHO the Lord Jesus is and what He has done for us all.
Bring into her life friends who have a deep love for Jesus and a place for us we pray, in a church family that teaches the grace of God and the truth of Your Scriptures – and we pray that You would supply the materials and opportunities to saturate her in Your Word and may she also develop a deep desire to know more of You as she grows older. Into Your hands Lord I place my daughter – giving her into Your hands for Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray,

For A Husband That Is Disinterested In Salvation
Loving heavenly Father, thank You for saving me – thank You for Jesus. Thank You for dying for me on the cross and for bringing me into Your family. I love You Lord and long that my own dear husband would also come to faith in You.
Father my husband is so disinterested in anything to do with Jesus and being saved. He does not understand the terrible consequences of dying in his sins and of not having Jesus as his Saviour. He thinks it is cute that I am a ‘ saved cutie’ as he calls it and is quite happy for me to go to church – but Lord it disturbs me that he is so disinterested.
Convict him Lord of his sin and his need for a Saviour. Convict him of the terrible consequences of falling under God’s wrath.. Lord I pray that You would turn his heart to the Lord Jesus and Father I know that it is a dangerous prayer to pray – but LORD WHATEVER it takes draw my husband into Your arms of forgiveness, in Jesus name I pray,
Thank you for Your Plan of Salvation
Thank You, Lord, for Your infinite wisdom and Your infinite grace, as demonstrated in the plan of salvation. Thank You for bringing me into communion with You through Your redemptive work.
Praying God’s Word for Salvations
“It is Jesus who teaches us how to pray. He learned it amid the trials and tears of His earthly life. In heaven it is still His beloved work. His life there is prayer. Nothing delights Him more than to find those He can take with Him into the Father’s presence, clothing them with power to pray down God’s blessing to those around them, training them to be His fellow-workers in the intercession by which the kingdom is to be revealed on earth.”
— Andrew Murray
I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me!
In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
Dear God in heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness.
I believe that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.
You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9 that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.
Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved.
Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace which has saved me from my sins. I thank you Jesus that your grace never leads to license, but rather it always leads to repentance. Therefore Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself.
Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life. AMEN.
