I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.

You may wish to use this prayer to “call on the Lord.”

Dear Father, I freely admit that I am a sinner and that my sin separates me from you. Right now, I am trusting the Lord Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. I am depending on Him and Him alone to forgive my sins and to bring me into a right relationship with you. I pray these things in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

If you have trusted Christ … Welcome to God’s family.
