A Sample Prayer
Just in case you don’t know how to pray or that seems to be what is stopping you, Pray the following prayer meaning it in your heart
Dear Lord Jesus Christ,
Thank you for dying on the cross and shedding your precious blood for my sins. I am sorry for all my sins. I ask you to come into my heart and forgive all my sins; I receive you as my Lord and my Savior. Heavenly Father, I thank you now for forgiving all my sins and giving me eternal life in Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.
The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty,
Maker of Heaven and Earth;
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended into Heaven,and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;from there He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy universal church, the communion of saints,the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.Amen.

God’s Simple Plan of Salvation
Search yourself and Pray!!!
I am asking you the most important question of life. Your joy or your sorrow for all eternity depends upon your answer. The question is: Are you saved? It is not a question of how good you are, nor if you are a church member, but are you saved? Are you sure you will go to Heaven when you die?
God says in order to go to Heaven, you must be born again. In John 3:7, Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Ye must be born again.” In the Bible God gives us the plan of how to be born again which means to be saved. His plan is simple! You can be saved today. How? I’m glad you asked!!!
First, my friend, you must realize you are a sinner. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Because you are a sinner, you are condemned to death. “For the wages [payment] of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). This includes eternal separation from God in Hell.
“ . . . it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27). But God loved you so much He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, to bear your sin and die in your place. “ . . . Jesus had to shed His blood and die. “… without shedding of blood is no remission [pardon]” (Hebrews 9:22).“… God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
Although we may never understand how, God said my sins and your sins were laid upon Jesus and He died in our place. He became our substitute. It is true. God cannot lie.
All men everywhere must repent” (Acts 17:30). This repentance is a change of mind that agrees with God. In Acts 16:30-31, the Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas: “…‘Sirs, what must I do to be saved?’ And they said, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved”
Simply believe on Him as the one who bore your sin, died in your place, was buried, and whom God resurrected.
Receive Him as Lord and Savior. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
Whosoever includes you. Right now, wherever you are, as your are repenting, lift your heart to God in prayer.
