Hi friend and welcome to this page. I am pretty happy you are here to take a look. You might have arrived here by “accident” or you might have got here from another part of my site, bayouswalk.com. Or it could be that you are truly searching for something or “someone”. If Jesus Christ is that someone that you are or have been searching for, I have great news for you! Jesus Christ loves you more than you realize, is alive, and can’t wait to meet you and welcome you home!
This page, A simple Sinners’ Prayer, is here for that purpose, to “introduce” you to Christ and for you to lay claim to the inheritance that was always yours and mine. Through a myriad of reasons that we encounter in our walk here on earth, most of us are unaware that somewhere, someone truly loves us, misses us, wants only the best for us, and is always waiting for us to come home.
Jesus Christ’s message of forgiveness, repentance, deliverance, abundance, redemption, salvation and eternal life is a free gift to you for the taking!!
John 11:25-26 New King James Version (NKJV) ” Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
In this article, I will walk you through some of the most common things folks want to know about the sinners’ prayer and getting to know Jesus Christ under the following sections.

Please do enjoy this read and don’t forget to add any of your questions/thoughts /comments on this article, below when you are done :))
what is the sinner’s prayer?
It sounds weird, right? I mean the name of this prayer lol. The sinner’s prayer is sort of the “unofficial name given to this prayer in evangelical denominational circles. In reality, I will tell you what it really means. It’s a deeply personal prayer to Jesus Christ, the son of the living God asking him for help, salvation, forgiveness, healing, and redemption and to enter into a personal and unique relationship with him among other things.
Imagine it this way. You are just going to a friend or a family member and just saying to them, I heard you can help with my life and just giving all of your cares, worries, problems, trouble to them to carry for you forever with no cost to yourself..at all…period!!
I can’t remember the last time I saw an offer like that from anyone on the street, online or on TV in my lifetime, do you?
can anybody say it?
Yes, yes, and yes!! Building on from the last section above, this free offer of Christs’ gospel message is an open invitation to all people. Why? Because he loves you and me big time?Why?Because we are family, yes us, mankind are all of his children and Jesus Christ wants nothing more dearly than to re-establish a personal, loving, sharing in your ups and downs relationship with us. As much as any loving parent does and wants for their child.
Genesis 1:26-27 NKJV
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them
Notice how I said re-establish? That was no mistake because you and I have come from the Father and we will return to the Father at the end of our days. We, all of us, have always been family and kin to the creator but all of our lives have taken us all over the place in different directions without God, hence us not really knowing this true family relationship with Jesus Christ.
How can it help me?
Just imagine if you were walking down the street tomorrow and you got to talking to some random stranger. Just say this random bloke(Aussie slang for man)says to you” I got a free gift for you right now and it includes”:
- eternal life
- abundant life now
- a never-ending peace
- adoption into a family with a Father that loves you more than you can imagine, even before you knew him
That’s basically what entering into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ can do for you!!
how do I say it?
Great question! There is no right or wrong way to say this prayer, remember, it’s all about re-establishing a personal familial relationship with Jesus Christ, the son of the living God! When you have a falling out with a friend or family do you sit down and write out a script to say to them and book a time with them to have the chat? No way, you just go and get some alone time with them and talk it over right?
Well, the same applies here, you just put some alone time aside for you and Jesus and tell him everything. Don’t worry, tell him everything, there ain’t nothing that the savior hasn’t heard before right? I mean you’re talking to a man that came and lived among us 2000yrs ago. The same man taught, loved, cried, healed, got angry, experienced poverty, despair, loneliness, thirst, hunger, and betrayal. To top that all off he was falsely incarcerated tried, sentenced, mocked, spit on, whipped and beaten, etc. As if that wasn’t enough he was then tortured (crucified) and murdered.
Do ya reckon Jesus will be able to understand where you are coming from? I reckon so, tell him everything.
John 3:16 New King James Version (NKJV)” For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
The Sinner’s Prayer.
If you have been living a life that you know deep down is not doing any good for you and you are seeking love, help, and deliverance, just get alone with the Father and repeat this prayer as below or in the attached video. I can 100% guarantee from personal experience, that if you recite the below and truly believe, Christ will come into your heart and change your life forever! Let’go through this together now ……..
“Dear heavenly father. I know that I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness,
I believe you died for my sins and rose from the dead,
I turn from my sins,
I repent of my sins,
I invite you to come into my heart and life,
I want to trust and follow you as my Lord and savior,
In Jesus name, amen!!”
Congratulations, Hallelujah and praise God!! Did you know that a party breaks out in heaven amongst the angels whenever anyone repents of their sins and accepts Christ into their heart? That’s right, that’s how much you mean to God and his son Jesus Christ !!
you are not alone anymore!!
