When I made the decision to follow Christ, I realized that I was really choosing to get more out of my life. My disobedience to God had left me full of sadness, failing at my goals, and racked with fear. Worst than anything else, my sin had led me away from God. I knew I would have to change…A LOT. But, what I have given up is no comparison to finally having peace of mind. In the years since, I’ve gained more freedom than I thought possible. The road wasn’t easy but I’m liberated from so many of the things that kept me depressed, unsuccessful, and fearful. I would not be doing my job if I didn’t ask you this question.

The Sinner’s Prayer
Dear God, I know that I need you. I am sorry for things that I have done that did not please you. I want to turn away from my past toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid living in sin again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins. I believe that He was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite you Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
A Commitment to Change
“Dear Jesus, I’m grateful that I can receive you as my savior through prayer. Now that I have given you my life, I choose to commit to a change. I will not be the same. When temptation comes, I will seek your Word, counsel and the Holy Spirit. I will not make excuses when I fail, but through confession and repentance I will receive the freedom of the blood of Jesus. I will not let condemnation keep me tied to my past or ashamed. I am free.”
