When someone wants a relationship with Jesus, God of Hope encourages them to talk to God in prayer with their own words and concerns.
 

Life Changing Prayer

Repentance – acknowledging that I am separated from God

Understanding – that life without Jesus leads to an eternity away from God

Acceptance – receiving the gift of life through the death and resurrection of Jesus, the Son of God

Commitment – committing your life to God, knowing that from this moment on, you are a child of God

The Life Changing prayer must come from your heart and we hope this will help you to invite Jesus into yours. This prayer is here only as a guide.

Father in heaven, without you I am without hope. Forgive me for turning away from you and for all the wrongdoings of my past, present and future.

Please come into my life, grant me your peace, erase the pain, restore my soul, and guide me in your righteous ways that I will no longer fear evil knowing you will protect and comfort me.

I know that because of the love of Jesus, your goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of the rest of my life.  Thank you. Amen.”
