P-90X "Prayer for 90 Days!" (The Sinner's Prayer.. This Is Where It Starts!)



Before we begin such an amazing 90-Day Prayer Series, we want to make sure each and every one of you is saved. God only hears the repentant prayers of a sinner. Prayer is for the saved and it is our access to communicate with our Lord & Savior.

To Be “Saved” means that a conversion or a God-produced change takes place in a person due to Jesus Christ being received into your heart. When you receive Jesus Christ into your heart, His character, and the power of God will bring change into your life as you seek it, as you allow! Sometimes it is experienced and seen quickly and at other times it is not as evident or so fast coming forth, either way we walk it out and He empowers that change to come about in that obedience to Him!

Conversion can be defined as a change that takes place in our heart or spirit-man (inner most being), through the Spirit of God. We are born into this world, separated from God, due to sin. We become awakened or “made alive” to God through the intervention of His Holy Spirit in our lives, moving us to repentance. Repentance is the turning away from our sinful nature, by acknowledging our sin before God. We realize in God’s Presence that we fall short of being Holy like Him, and then turning to God we receive His help, mercy and grace by His Holy Spirit, to empower us to turn from our old ways and be changed into God’s likeness (being). You know you have truly repented because once you have turned away from the sin you will not want to go back to it because you love God and don’t want to hurt Him. Remember sin hurts you in more ways than you may realize at that moment and it hurts others. 

When we repent it is a step to growth and maturity in Him and in this life for ourselves. Repentance should shut doors that allow evil spirits and wrong people into our lives and opens doors for God to move and right relationships to flow into those areas of our lives. This can only be done through the Holy Spirit as we submit or yield, to allow this change to take place in us. The Holy Spirit helps us to see this need to receive Jesus Christ as Savior, who takes away our sins and to receive Him as Lord, to help us live a life right unto God. At this point, by an act of faith on our part (believing that God is and trusting Him), we ask Jesus Christ into our heart (inner man) as Savior and Lord. This is the process of giving our lives to and receiving Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord.

How to Ask Jesus Christ Into Your Heart:

First, this is by an action of faith. We go to God, believing and trusting that He is all that He has said He is, and will do for us all He has said He will do through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Second , by acting upon that belief (a step of faith). In accordance with your faith, we believe and trust God, and ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart, receive Him. (He will then come into your heart just as He has promised!)

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

You can receive Jesus into your heart now by praying and trusting God at His Word. God knows the desire of your heart and is ready to come and live in you and through your spirit. He will not turn you away. This is the way to taste and see, and know (and continue to know) that the Lord is good!

 I ask you to get in a place now, where you will not be disturbed, so you can get quiet in the privacy of your own mind with Him. How do you know He is there with you? He is omnipresent, which is an attribute of God. He can be with someone in China and be with you here at the same moment in time. Be determined to block out all interferences, get still, quiet, and serious with God. Tell God you are serious about what you are about to pray. Will He hear you? Absolutely! He loves you, you are His creation. He has been waiting on you to come to Him and He is listening to you right now!

Please Pray asking Jesus Christ to Be Your Lord and Savior (Sinners Prayer)    
(Please Pray Out Loud) :

Heavenly Father I come to You now in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ.  I confess that I am a sinner and that I have sinned against You.  I ask You to forgive me for all of my sins and I repent for my sins and I choose to follow and obey and accept Your Son Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.  I believe in my heart that You sent Your Son Jesus Christ to die for my sins on the cross at Calvary.  I believe that Your son Jesus Christ was born of the virgin Mary, was crucified and died on the cross at Calvary for me and the sins of all others.  I believe that after 3 days He was raised from the dead, ascended into Heaven, and is alive today.  I ask You Jesus Christ to be the Lord of my life and to be my Savior. I receive You now as my Lord and Savior with all of my heart.  I believe that Jesus Christ is my King and my God and the Lord of my life.  I believe that Jesus Christ is alive in me, and I declare that Jesus Christ is the Lord of my life. Amen!
