The Sinnerís Prayer For Evangelism
- We have used the word "he" for simplicity. However, you may be speaking to a "she" or "them"! Please modify accordingly!
- Invite your listener to pray this prayer, or something very similar, out loud, or quietly in his heart.
- Tell your listener that Jesus loves him so much that He died for him, so that he could go to Heaven, and not to Hell, when he dies.
- The following is a rather long version of the type of prayer we use for large meetings.
- You can modify the prayer below as the Holy Spirit leads you, making it shorter as appropriate.
- However, do not forget to include the most important parts, REPENTANCE and FORGIVENESS!
- Tell your listener that he will hear God the Holy Spirit speak to him twice, using his conscience, twice as he prays this prayer.
- By all means pray the prayer out loud, and encourage your listener to either pray out loud, or quietly if he wants to.
- In a public place, if you both keep your eyes open, nobody need know that a prayer is being said.
- It may help to hold your listener's hand. Please use your discretion, and listen to the prompting of the Holy Spirit, which is identical to your conscience.
- You cannot pray the prayer for him!
- He MUST pray the prayer for himself!
- Instruct your listener to sincerely, and slowly, pray the following to God the Father, who loves all of us, but does require each one of us to be born again.
- Jesus looked up to Heaven when He prayed, so you do not have to shut your eyes!
1. Loving Father, I want to be sure that when I die I do not go to Hell. I want to go to Heaven, to live with you forever.
2. I believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for me personally, and that He rose again from the dead after 3 days.
3. I need to be born again, just like Jesus Christ taught in the Bible (see John 3:3 and John 3:7).

like your conscience.
