He is listening and waiting to come into your heart and help you live a better life. Will you invite Him in now? If you’d like to pray and receive Jesus Christ as your Savior, you can use this simple prayer as a guide:

“Lord Jesus, I ask You to come into my life and forgive me of all my sins. I confess Jesus as the Lord of my life. Thank You for saving me. I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that You died for my sins and You rose from the dead. I am saved. Write my name in the Lamb’s book of life. I pray this to the Father in the Name of Jesus. Amen.

Welcome to God’s family. We will see you in eternity. Praise God.
