Prayer for Eternal Life

Here is a suggested Prayer:
“Lord Jesus Christ, I know I am a sinner and do not deserve eternal life. But, I believe You died and rose from the grave to purchase a place in heaven for me. Lord Jesus, come into my life; forgive my sins and save me. I repent of my sins and now place my trust in You for my salvation, I accept the free gift of eternal life.”

If this prayer is the sincere desire of your heart, look at what Jesus promises to those who believe in Him:

Truly, truly, I say to you, he that believes in Me has everlasting life.” (John 6: 47)

Welcome to the family of God!


But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God; even to them that believe on His name.” (John 1: 12)


The Bible speaks of those who receive eternal life in these words:

“Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” (John 1: 13)

  • Read the Bible-Start by reading a chapter a day in the gospel of John.

  • Witness-Tell others what Jesus Christ means to you!


A lot of people mistake true faith for a faith that will not save you.
Saving Faith is not mere head knowledge, like believing certain historical facts. The Bible says that the devil believes that there is one God, so believing that there is one God is not saving faith.

Saving faith is not mere Temporal Faith, that is, trusting God for temporary crises such as financial, family, or physical needs. Now these are good, and you should trust Christ for these, but they are not saving faith!

Saving Faith is trusting in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life. It means resting upon Christ Alone and what He Has Done rather than in what you or I have done to get us to heaven.

“…Believe (trust) on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved…
“ (Acts16: 31)
