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.

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”:

  • forgiveness
  • love
  • compassion
  • healing
  • redemption
  • salvation
  • 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!!”

John 8:36 New King James Version (NKJV) “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”

congratulations!!

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 !!

Luke 15:10 New King James Version (NKJV)” Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents”

you are not alone anymore!!

I do pray and hope that this article was able to help you in getting to know just who the real Jesus Christ is and I am excited for the journey that now lies ahead of you in your new walk with Christ now!!

I do have 2 vital suggestions for you before you go:

1. try and read a bit of the bible every day. If you don’t have one, you can download a free offline version here.

Doing this will truly grow you and strengthen you in Christ!!

2. Get around other “born again” Christian believers asap. You can do this by seeking out your nearest “bible teaching church”. You can find one by simply entering “bible teaching church near me” into google or via a search on most social media platforms.

Getting around other believers will also be a great source of strength to you as well !!

Please do comment below or email me at admin@bayouswalk.com on any thoughts that you may have on the above article. I do really look forward to hearing about any testimony you might have on how Christ has impacted your life now. I would also like to hear any questions on how I can assist you now, in moving forward with your walk with Christ today and into the blessed future that awaits you!!

I truly hope that this article was able to assist somebody, somewhere !!

Stay blessed !!

Bayou

    Hi thanks for writing such a beautiful article that talks about Jesus Christ. In today’s world ,there are less and less people who are willing to write about Jesus.Please do  keep it up and I will tell my grandparents to go through your article.I know that they will love reading your article.

      Hi friend, thanks heaps for your feedback here, much appreciated.I didnt realise that there are less and less people writing about Christ as you put it.I am not too concerned about that as much as I am about sharing Christ’s gospel message with the world.

  2. Col says:

    So many people don’t realize how simple the words are to eternal life. Amazing how God loves the sinner so much that He grants him time to repent. The words to the prayer are so simple. I spoke words to this effect almost 20 yrs ago and He has turned my life around completely. I have loved every step with Him since then because it has been Him who carried me all the way.

    I would encourage all who are thirsty to say this prayer. All who are broken-hearted to say this prayer. All who are weary to say this prayer. All who just need a friend that is different from all the other friends you’ve ever had, to say this prayer.

    I guarantee you won’t regret it. Love it Bayou. ❤️🙏🏽❤️🙏🏽🙏🏽

      Hey Twin, thanks heaps for your feedback here, much appreciated. Yes,that gospel message is a love letter to family from family isn’t it.Praise God Christ made a way for us on the cross to head home !!

    Thanks for a beautiful and  well written article on faith.  I believe faith is such a personal thing, but I like to see it shown by others as well.  I consider myself a person of faith, in that I believe in God and attend church on a regular basis(though it’s been a couple of months because of the pandemic) but I must admit I wasn’t aware of The Sinner’s Prayer.  That is why I read the article and am glad I did. I think you will get people to at least pause for a minute and think about how they lead their lives.  

    1. Bayou says:

      thanks heaps for your feedback here Yvette,much appreciated.Yes the sinner’s prayer is definitely unique to evangelical circles and I do pray that you did get something out of it.Christ wants nothing more than a personal relationship with all of us and labels aside,that’s what this prayer is intended for.Bless ya Yvette.

    Hello and thank you about this article. I am a Christian and I believe in Jesus Christ our Lord and our Savior. I have to admit I am not even going to church even before the pandemic. But I believe that what you are doing to others, you are doing to Jesus Christ too. So I am trying to do good to others as much as possible.

    I also believe that the true Church of Jesus Christ lies in our hearts and not the structures built by man. Yes, I am a sinner too and your article has been a big help for me.

    I really like how you presented this article about the Sinner’s Prayer and I will save your article so that I can memorize this prayer. Thank you so much!

    Hello there! thanks for sharing this highly inspirational article. The knowledge of God’s love is the foundation of all His works in an Individual’s life. Unfortunately, Satan works tirelessly to blind people from the reality of God’s love. I trust that this post will serve as a reminder of the amazing love of God expressed through his Sacrifice of Christ on the cross to as many who will  read.
