Prayer of Rebirth
Prayer of Rebirth
The most important question of your life: Do you know what will happen to you after your death? One day every one faces physical death. Life however continues after physical death as well: the spirit and soul of man continue to exist. Do you know where your spirit and soul get after physical death? According to the Bible there are two places: one of them is heaven, the other one is hell. What decides then where we go? If you think you go to heaven according to your good deeds, you are wrong Dear Reader! Furthermore, if you think you have done so many bad things in your life and committed so many sins that there is no chance for you to get into Heaven then you are wrong also.
There is no sin that could keep you from going to heaven. On the other hand you cannot go to heaven only because you have done so many good things in your life.
What determines then where we get?
Jesus only mentions one condition: You must be born again. (John 3,7)
You may ask, How could I be born again? Nikodemus didn’t understand Jesus’ words about the rebirth either, because he asked, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? (John 3,4)
Jesus answered in this way, That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. (John 3,6)
For your spiritual rebirth God has payed an enormous price, he gave His only begotten son, because He loved you so much, and He longed so much to be in fellowship with you again.
For God so loved the world (you), that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever (you) believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3,16)
That’s wonderful. God worked out the way for you so that you can be saved. You have to know that there is no other way to the Father, only through Jesus Christ. No one comes to the Father except by Me — Jesus says. (John 14,6)
Neither belonging to church, nor following religious traditions, nor good works, nor perfect lifestyle can lead to the Father. Only one way can lead to the Father: Jesus Christ. Man is not able to save himself. Man needs a Saviour, a Redeemer. That is why Jesus came.
For your salvation – for your rebirth – you don’t have to do other thing than to accept Jesus Christ, the son of God in your heart as The Saviour. If you would like to ask Jesus to be The Saviour of your life say the following prayer.
Dear heavenly Father, I come before You in the name of Jesus. You say in your Word:
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” (Romans 10,9)
I believe in my heart that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
I believe that Jesus died for my sins.
I believe that Jesus was raised from the dead,
for my justification.
I ask you Jesus, be my Lord!
I ask you Jesus, be my Saviour!
I ask you Jesus, be my Healer!
According to your Word, “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10,10)
I believe it in my heart and now I confess my faith with my mouth:
Jesus is my Lord.
Jesus is my Saviour.
Jesus is my Healer.
I am Saved.
Thank You, Lord Jesus for my eternal life. Amen.
Receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit
Dear Heavenly Father, the Scripture says that if I ask You for the Holy Spirit, You will provide it to me graciously. (Lk. 11:13)
Therefore, precious Lord Jesus, I ask You for the Holy Spirit according to Your word. Please, fill my heart with the Holy Spirit. Baptize me with your Holy Spirit!
Lord Jesus, thank You for hearing and answering all my prayers. (1Jn 5:14–15)
Now I believe in my heart, I have just received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. I have been filled with Him; my heart is filled with the Holy Spirit. As the first evidence, I will speak in other tongues, as the Bible teaches, and as the Holy Spirit gives me utterance. (Acts 2:1–4)
Thank You, Heavenly Father. Thank you, Jesus. The Holy Spirit will remain in me and with me forever and ever, and He will guide me into all truth. (Jn. 16:13) Amen.
