A Prayer of Salvation
YAHshua (Jesus) the Son of the Most High God came to earth “to seek and to save the lost” (Luke 19:10 NIV). He is searching for those who are compelled within their hearts to seek for Him with all their heart, for “He rewards those who earnestly seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6 NIV). “You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13).
Our relationship with the Savior is a divinely appointed union predestined before the foundations of the earth. “He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him” (Ephesians1:4). “YAHveh (the LORD) knows those who are His” (2 Timothy 2:19) and He sent His Son to ransom and redeem them. YAHveh (the LORD) will rescue and save from wrath those who are truly His.
There is only one way! There is only one path! There is only one Savior! YAHshua (Jesus)! It is His divine atoning blood that poured out of His holy body on the tree at Calvary, when He gave His life as a ransom to pay the price for our sins. “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of YAHveh (God) is eternal life in Messiah YAHshua (Christ Jesus)” (Romans 6:23).
This gift is for all who will acknowledge that there is one true living God—the Creator of heaven and earth. He requires holiness, and we must acknowledge that we are sinners who need forgiveness and cleansing. Only by the shedding of blood is there forgiveness of sin (see Hebrews 9:22). This is the one message, the one way that brings eternal life! But the message of the world contradicts, saying, “No, there are many ways.” Believers born anew of His Spirit know there is only one way, one truth, and one life—YAHshua (Jesus). Believers worldwide have counted the cost even unto a martyr’s death in order to not deny the Savior and stay on that narrow path that leads to eternal life.
This kind of love is based on a personal relationship with their beloved Savior who they know, love and cherish more than life on earth. This kind of relationship is not a religious, theological, intellectual knowledge of Him. They know Him personally! They love Him with all of their hearts, souls, spirits, and might. Nothing will turn them back, not even death. They know Him and His promises. They know His forgiveness. They know His cleansing and His purification. They know His righteousness. They know His never failing love and faithfulness and desire to obey, glorify and live with Him in His kingdom forever.
Time is short! Judgment is coming, on a worldwide level. Many of the inhabitants of the world are going to be destroyed for their rebellion against the Creator. There’s no time to fiddle around with worldly distractions and divided affections that are as foreign gods in our hearts before our holy King. He searches men’s hearts and is jealous (see Exodus 34:14) for our undivided love and faith filled allegiance. It is time to forsake everything to wholeheartedly seek the one true living God and His Son our Savior, who is the only and ultimate provision that leads to eternal life.
You do not want to miss getting to that other side, the only way that has been given through YAHshua Messiah (Jesus Christ). May the Almighty, who created you in your mother’s womb, who loves you and “does not want anyone to perish,” open your ears so that you hear His voice. May you understand His love that wants your soul to be saved. May you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that He died to make you His child forever, through the cleansing saving blood of His only begotten Son, who is “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29).
If you don’t know—“now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2 NIV). Hear what the Spirit is saying! Don’t harden your heart. The only sin that will keep you out of His eternal loving presence is the sin of arrogance and pride that says, “I don’t need a Savior.” This moment He wants to come into your heart and bless you with His presence. His Spirit longs to lead you through repentance to righteous living. The following prayer is for you if you wholeheartedly desire eternal life and a righteous walk with the Savior.
Dear Heavenly Father, I know that You are speaking truth directly to my heart. I humble myself before You. I know that I am a sinner; my actions and thoughts are not holy. I know You are holy. Please forgive me for my sins. Forgive me for the evil inclinations of my heart and mind. I ask You to search my heart, convicting me of my sins more and more.
Cleanse me with the blood of Your Son YAHshua (Jesus), who came to this earth and gave His life to bear my sin on the stake at Calvary so that I might live in His glorious kingdom and not suffer eternal death. YAHshua (Jesus), I invite You to come and dwell in my heart. Be master over my whole life. Lead me by Your Spirit to work out my salvation day by day as I read Your word and learn of Your perfect ways.
I thank You that through the resurrection power that raised You from the dead, I too, will be resurrected at Your appointed time to live in Your presence in Your eternal kingdom. I will live because Your blood covers my repentant heart, covers my confessed sins, and allows the Father, YAHveh, to see me as righteous and welcome me into His kingdom, as a child of the Most High.
HalleluYAH—meaning Praise be to YAHveh! You asked Him into your heart. You have confessed your sins, and the blood has covered you! He says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). It does not matter what you have done—no sin is too wretched to be washed away by the blood of YAHshua (Jesus). If you prayed, you now, by faith, have received the gift of eternal life.
Go, empowered by His Holy Spirit, pray to Him, read His holy word. He says, “like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation” (1 Peter 2:2). Crave His word like a baby craving mother’s milk. Begin to read and see how His word will now become spirit and life to you. It will not be black and white print that makes no sense; instead it will become food to sustain and nourish you and cause you to grow up into a disciple; a mature son or daughter of the Most High.
