Have you ever accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior?

 Would you like to do so now? If so, Just repeat this simple prayer.....

 

 

Dear God,

I come to you in the name of Jesus. I know that I am a sinner in need of a Savior. I ask you to forgive me of all my sins.

The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that "Jesus is Lord", and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Romans 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life.

Thank you for saving me!

In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Congratulations!!!! You have made one of the most important decisions in life.  You decided to give your life to Jesus Christ.  The Anointed House of Prayer (AHOP) would like to welcome you to God’s enormous family.  The members at AHOP come from a diverse background, but we have one thing in common:  we all believe that Jesus is the answer to our problems and desires.

Knowing about Jesus is simply not enough; you must develop an intimate and personal relationship with him. Below is a list of things you can do to help you begin the next phase now that you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior.

 

 

You gave your life to Christ, so what’s next?

 

 

Forgiveness

God is a forgiving God. You have given your life to Christ and you are now a new creation.  He has forgiven you for everything that you have done wrong.

 

Scripture References

Ephesians 2:8 - You were saved by faith in God, who treats us much better that we deserve.

This is God's gift to you, and you have done nothing on your own.

 

John 1:12-13 - For those who put their faith in Jesus: He gave them the right to be the children of God... God Himself was the One who made them His children.

 

Prayer

Prayer is simply talking to God.  Talk to God the way you would talk to another person.  You want to talk to God daily, it does not matter when or where, just spend time telling him your problems, worries, joy, etc.  

AHOP’s foundation is built on prayer.

Scripture Reference

Matthew 6:5-15 – The Lord knows what you need before you go to him in prayer about

Philippians 4:6-7 – The Lord wants us to come to him with our requests and be at peace after we pray to him.

 

Reading the Bible

Reading the Bible is how God talks to us. The Bible is broken into two sections; the Old Testament and the New Testament.  The Old Testament talks about the coming of Jesus and the New Testament talks about Christ and his teachings. As you develop a routine for reading the Bible follow these simple things; find a quiet place and time, pray that God speaks to you through his word; choose a book and try to read a chapter a day; read for comprehension and find a verse that speaks to your heart; take notes and end with a prayer asking God to help you live out his word.
