A Sinner’s Prayer Prompted by the Last Passover in Luke 22

Dear God and heavenly Father,

I know that I am a sinner and that I need your forgiveness. I confess that there is nothing that I can do to save myself.  I admit my complete inability to work my way to heaven or to somehow be good enough to be saved.  Instead, I trust Christ and Christ alone as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross.

I believe that I can come to you directly on the basis of Christ’s shed blood and in so doing not have to face your holy judgment.  I believe that Christ was raised from the dead and I take this as a guarantee of my own resurrection.  Help me now to live completely for you.

Please fill me with your Holy Spirit so that I might walk in newness of life.  And help me to carry out your will each and every day until I meet you face to face.

In Christ,

Amen
