The one thing we have to understand at this time is sincerity on our part is very important. A sincere heart to Jesus asking him to change you on the inside and save you from the way you were living (which was in sin) to a life of change that he would give is "key" . It is not asking him to get you out of trouble or a difficult moment you might be in.

Read this prayer out loud to God if you mean it:
Dear Jesus:

Here I am a sinner, not knowing what to do. I agree with you that the way I am living is wrong and I can not get out of it. I need you to take me from that wrong way of life because you are the only that can do it. Please Jesus; Save me from sin forever so I have eternal life with you--even after I die. AMEN!!!!!

Now, since you prayed that prayer to ask Jesus to come into your heart and save you from your sins, read what is for you:

Romans 10:10 says: "For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation."

Ephesians 2:8 & 9 says "For by grace are you saved by faith, and that not of yourselves. It is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast."

1 John 1:9 says "If we confess our sin, he is faithful and just to forgive us from our sin and clean us from all unrighteousness."

Reading the verses above, you have God's word [promise] that you are saved. If you believe that with your heart, you are saved!!!


Returning to Jesus is a trying moment in any Christians life. It is a moment when you agree with him you did what came natural or automatic to you.

Common Man "--- SINNING . Whether it has been for a moment or over a time, the important thing is: You recognize it and see it as God sees it.

This is a blessing whether you realize it or not. Most of the time, Christians go for the rest of their lives in this peril and don't want to ever correct and get out of disobedience. That is the the most miserable place for a Christian to be. Repeat this simple to God as you read it if this is what you want to do.

Dear Jesus:

The way I have been acting in front of you and others is not what you had planned or appreciated at all. I disappointed you and I am sorry. I am asking you to forgive me and restoring me into the person you had changed when you saved in the past. Things maybe different now, but you aren't. So, I will need some direction to go by that comes from you. Thank you for listening to me and the help you will provide for the rest of my life. AMEN!!!!

One story comes to mind---Jonah and the Whale. Jonah was disobidient to God. During his time in disobidience, he went out to sea on a voyage. This voyage took Jonah in the opposite direction God wanted him to go. As a result, Jonah went overboard and was swallowed up by a whale.

After being in the whale for a short period of time, the whale had his belly full of Jonah and spit him out. Jonah did what you finished doing---He prayed to God for forgiveness and was obedient to God, thereafter.

Scripture says:

"Come unto me that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly at heart, and you will find rest unto your souls. For my burden is easy and my yoke is light."

---Matthew 11: 28-30 (NKJV)

"For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is His mercy toward those that fear him; As far as the east is from the west, So far has he removed our transgressions from us."

---Psalms 103: 11 & 12 (NKJV)

"And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Confess your trespasses to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much."

---James 5:16
