Praying to an unseen God can be intimidating at first. Eventually, it will feel as natural as breathing. Start by simply talking to him. This prayer is the beginning of accepting the wonderful gift of salvation in Jesus Christ:
I know I have messed up in my life. I have sinned, and that has created a barrier between you and me. I need your forgiveness. I know I can’t do it on my own. I want to turn away from everything that I know is wrong. Right now, I choose to trust in you. I choose to accept your free gift of eternal life, and I believe that your sacrificial death freed me from this sin-baggage I have carried for so long. Please come into my life, renew me, love me and stay with me forever.
Thank you, Jesus. Amen.”
When you welcome God in, he in turn will give himself fully to you, no strings attached. It is because of Jesus Christ’s act of utter selflessness, when he made the ultimate sacrifice for us, that we are able to have this kind of authentic relationship with him.
