Why 
       Jesus ?
Step 1

I want to learn more about Jesus Christ and Christian beliefs.

I believe I am a Christian, but how can I be sure?

I want to commit my life to Jesus ... for the first time!

I want to rededicate my life to Jesus.

What does it mean to be filled with the Holy Spirit?

What do I do now?

How can I tell others about Jesus?

Being a witness for Jesus

I am a lay person, what role can I play in telling others about Jesus?

I still have other questions, where can I find answers?

Step 4

 

 

Commit your life to Jesus Christ

 

Prayer

Heavenly Father, I want to have all the experiences in my life that You have provided for me in Jesus. 

I am sorry for the things I have done against Will in my life.

[Take a few moments to ask His forgiveness for anything particular that is on your conscience]

Please forgive me.

I now turn from everything which I know is wrong.

Thank you Jesus that you died for me on the cross so that I could be forgiven and set free.

Thank you that you offer me forgiveness and the gift of your Spirit. I now receive that gift.

I ask You, Lord Jesus, to bring me ever deeper into my experience of life and reveal Your life and love to me. I will receive the gift of Your love in Your death for me, and all that it means. 

I want You to take over the guidance of my life and be my Lord. Even though I don't know all that this means now, I trust You to teach me. Lord Jesus, I ask You to baptize me in Your Holy Spirit with all that it means to You to do so. I want all You have suffered so much to give me to be a part of my life and experience. 

Lord Jesus, I empty myself of all that I thought I knew if it stands in Your way of teaching me more about Yourself. Teach me Your love - may Your Holy Spirit now be my ability to love, to speak and to live a life worthy of Your name. I thank You Father; 

I do now receive all of Jesus; I thank You Jesus, I do now receive all of Your Holy Spirit; I thank you Holy Spirit that You have made all this possible by Your faithful love. In Holiness, teach me, and in Your grace I shall learn. 

In Jesus' name, I pray in thanksgiving. Amen.
