If you haven’t been born again, i.e., received Jesus as your Lord and Savior, it is as simple as saying the following prayer.
Dear Heavenly Father –
I have tried doing things my way
and they haven’t worked out well.
I believe You have a plan for my life and could do a better job.
Please forgive me of my sins and come into my heart.
I want that new life You promise
and an everlasting life in heaven.
Fill me with Your Holy Spirit.
help me to follow wherever You lead.
I ask this in the name of Your Son, Jesus.
If you are leading someone to the Lord, you can use the prayer above or you can tailor it to the person’s circumstances, letting the Holy Spirit guide you. As you speak, have them repeat it after you, line by line.
