Easter Salvation Prayer

24 March 2020

Salvation prayer to God

Saying a prayer is as simple as talking to God – whether silently in your mind, or out aloud. We can talk to him about anything, and we can also listen to him – God says in the Bible that we will hear his voice inside us as a “still, small voice” (1 Kings 19:12). He also says his followers will know his voice (John 10:27).

A Salvation prayer is not complicated - we can simply let God know we are thankful Jesus died as our Saviour and we can ask Jesus into our hearts and our lives.

As we do, He promises to give us a sense of being assured we are secure in his love and protection forever, from now into eternity.

Here are some words you may like to use in a Salvation prayer to God:

Dear Jesus,

I need you and believe in you as the ultimate hope. I am a sinner and need your grace to forgive and change me. Thank you for dying on the cross for me, and for giving me life and eternity.

Now I am a Christian, which means you live in me. Fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me the strength to be your disciple.


If you have prayed this prayer and would like to let us know so we can support you in your journey as a follower of Jesus, please contact us.

We can also help you connect with your local Salvation Army church community or another Christian church in your area. Many of these churches are meeting online now and also offering online chat or discussion groups.

We would encourage you to start communicating with God daily in prayer and reading the Bible so you can hear from him. If you don’t have one, the Bible is available online in lots of translations. One good source is

Assurance of Salvation

Ephesians 1:13-14 Living Bible (TLB)

13 And because of what Christ did, all you others too, who heard the Good News about how to be saved, and trusted Christ, were marked as belonging to Christ by the Holy Spirit, who long ago had been promised to all of us Christians. 14 His presence within us is God’s guarantee that he really will give us all that he promised; and the Spirit’s seal upon us means that God has already purchased us and that he guarantees to bring us to himself. This is just one more reason for us to praise our glorious God.
