Prayer About Being Prepared for the End of Physical Life

After 46 years of being a born again Christian, reading God’s Word (the Bible), and listening to the teaching and preaching on the prophecy of the end times and Christ’s return for believers, I believe that now, more than ever, we need to be ready. Revelation 22:7 Jesus said, “behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.

It is also a critical time for us as believers to share the Good News of the Gospel and encourage our loved ones and friends to be sure they know they have accepted Jesus Christ as Savior. John 3:16For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

In light of the extremely uncertain times we are living in, we are reposting the salvation plan that can easily be forwarded to any you know who are not believers and are not ready for Heaven when the time comes. According to the Bible, the alternative (Hell) is not pleasant.

Before sending this to anyone, we encourage you to click on this prayer link as a guide to pray for your unbelieving loved ones and friends. God’s peace be with you as you think and pray about this information.

Salvation Plan

The decision you make about the following information is the most important decision you will ever make in your life.

The Bible tells us:

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.Romans 3:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.Romans 6:23

Fortunately for us, God has provided the answer to our sin:

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.John 3:16

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”’ John 14:6

By sending His Son, Jesus, to die on the cross, God has provided a way for us to have a relationship with Him. A relationship with God is our only way off the path of destruction and onto the path of righteousness that leads to Heaven. This relationship allows us to have the joy of the Lord in our hearts in this life “…for the joy of the LORD is your strengthNehemiah 8:10.

In order to receive God’s grace, You must do what He instructs in Acts 16:31so they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved…

If you desire to become a child of God, pray a prayer similar to this one with faith in the truth of what God’s Word teaches about salvation:

Lord Jesus, I recognize that I am a sinner, incapable of saving myself. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and rose again. I now invite You to come into my heart. I choose to follow and obey You as the Lord of my life and to turn away from my sin. I place my trust in You as my only Savior and my only way to salvation and I ask You to forgive me of my sins. Thank you, Jesus, for coming into my life and making me new. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.John 1:12

He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.1 John 5:12-13

According to God’s Word, you are now a Christian and a believer. To grow as God’s child, start by reading the Bible (begin with the book of John). Develop your personal prayer life and seek out fellowship with other believers in a Bible-teaching church.

May the Lord bless you as you go forward in your walk with Him.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.2 Corinthians 5:17
