For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
Do you believe you’re a sinner and that you need forgiveness? Do you believe that He is the son of God, that He died on the cross and rose again?
Romans 10:9 says that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. It’s not about the prayer, though, but about the condition of your heart. (Many people will pray a simple prayer but not have their heart in the right condition, not truly trust and believe in Him as the son of God, His resurrection, and His power to save.) This is why it’s so important to understand that we cannot live solely by what we feel–although that’s really hard for us as humans (especially this human!). We can’t feel our way to salvation…we must know it beyond a shadow of a doubt. You’ve gotta know it down deep in your knower. Ya know? 🙂

Don’t wait another second to be sure that you know without a doubt that you’ve accepted Christ into your heart as your personal Savior.
