Prayer Requests

Prayer To Be Saved

  • "Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."

 

Prayer of Salvation - I've Prayed It; Now What?
If you've prayed this prayer of salvation with true conviction and heart, you are now a follower of Jesus. This is a fact, whether or not you feel any different. Religious systems may have led you to believe that you should feel something - a warm glow, a tingle, or some other mystical experience. The fact is, you may, or you may not. If you have prayed the prayer of salvation and meant it, you are now a follower of Jesus. The Bible tells us that your eternal salvation is secure! "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved" (
Romans 10:9). 

Welcome to the family of God! We encourage you now to find a local church where you can be baptized and grow in the knowledge of God through His Word, the Bible.

Thank you, Father, that You are stirring up the spirits of Your people to rebuild YOUR HOUSE in this city. (Ezra 1:5b). Thank you, Father, for Your promise that EVERY place upon which the soles of our feet shall tread is OURS. Therefore, we boldly declare that this city belongs to Your people in order to bring You glory. We shout VICTORY in the Name of Jesus, for You have given us this city. We devote this city and ALL that is in it to YOU, Lord. (Deuteronomy 11:24; Joshua 6:16-17). Father, we declare that we, as Your people, let NOTHING TERRIFY us, even though there are those who would seek to WEAKEN OUR HANDS for the task through FEAR by surrounding us with counselors who would counsel against us to frustrate our purpose and plans to rebuild Your house. BUT, NOW. STRENGTHEN OUR HANDS, Father. YOU are all we need—You are more than enough—to complete the task. For when the enemy sees Your work complete in this city, HE will FEAR and fall far in his own estimation, for he will see that the work was done by YOU. (I Peter 3:6; Ezra 4:4-5; Nehemiah 6:9, 16). Thank you, Father, that You are anointing Your people to be REPAIRERS OF THE BREACH in this city. In Nehemiah's day, Jerusalem's walls were torn down and its gates were burned with fire. But, when the enemies of Israel saw that the BREACHES of the wall were being CLOSED, they became VERY ANGRY, because they realized that as soon as ALL the BREACHES were closed, the city would be IMPENETRABLE. (Nehemiah 1:3; 4:7). Father, we will not be discouraged when we see the enemy becoming enraged, but we will see that his anger is a SURE SIGN of his INEVITABLE DEFEAT. Thank you that the intensity of the battle will press us into YOU, Father, and it will cause us to be all the more vigilant to set a watch against him day and night. We declare that we are ONE MAN, Father, and we will build and work on the wall with one hand, and hold a weapon with the other hand. (Nehemiah 4:17). Give us a revelation that the wall of our city is a LIVING WALL made up of LIVING STONES—Your Body—and the gates are representative of the ELDERS of the city. A wall with NO BREACHES means a city with NO PLACE for the enemy to enter. Cause us to see that, as Your church in this city, we DESPERATELY need one another. We cannot make a city-wide impact without a UNIFIED city-wide church. Your Word says that it is the FALSE PROPHET who is like a fox among ruins and waste places, but it is the TRUE PROPHET that goes up into the BREACHES and builds up the wall for the house of the Lord that it might stand in battle in the day of the Lord. So, Father, we ask that You would give us the grace to close EVERY BREACH caused by selfishness, competition, jealousy, division, enmity, strife, unforgiveness, denominationalism, sectarianism. exclusivism, gossip, backbiting, spiritual pride, doctrinal obsession, idolatry, or ANY OTHER SIN of Your church, so that THIS CITY will go down in history as a city that was set on a hill, whose light could not be hidden. (Ezekiel 13:4-5; Matthew :14). We declare that NOT ONE of Your people in this city be a fulfillment of the prophecy that, “in the latter times some will turn away from the faith”, for if we observe Your church in this city, yet see NO CHANCE of it becoming holy, we have turned away from faith in that area, and if we look at our city and it seems INCURABLE, then our faith needs to be rebuilt upon Your promises. (I Timothy 4:1). Deliver us from all self-righteousness, apathy, fear, unbelief and ANY OTHER SIN that would hinder the moving of Your Spirit in this place. Burn it into our hearts, Father, that this city’s strength to stand against the onslaught of the enemy is NOT dependent upon the faith of a few or even many INDIVIDUAL BELIEVERS in this city, nor is it dependent upon INDIVIDUAL CONGREGATIONS. It is dependent upon the RELATIONSHIPS between those individual believers and congregations. In other words, our strength is measured by the WALL’S state of REPAIR! Lord of the Harvest, we sense that You are about to issue the command to lower our net for the final harvest. Up until now, we have seen only a limited harvest, because we can catch just so many fish with individual hooks and bait, but a NET can capture MANY. Help us to see that there is only ONE NET spread over our city—NOT many little nets made up of individuals or congregations—but ONE NET. It, too, is a LIVING NET comprised of all those TRUE BELIEVERS who are DEAD to the world and ALIVE unto YOU. The knots joining the net together are symbolic of the RELATIONSHIPS between Your people in this city. If the net over this city is torn and in a bad state of repair, when You issue the command to lower it, much of the harvest in this city will escape the net through the holes and tears, for You have said in Your Word that the world would know we are Your disciples by our love for one another. Father, you have saved WHOLE CITIES in the past, and You are able to do it again. If there was HOPE for SODOM, for the sake of ten righteous, then there is HOPE for US! So Father, we ask that You would raise up NET MENDERS in this place, who will not rest until every tear has been mended, for the more perfectly repaired our net is, the greater the harvest will be in this city. In Jesus’ Name we pray—that mighty Name above all other names, which is our BANNER of PEACE, and our BOND of UNITY and HARMONY, abolishing every hostile dividing wall between us. Amen! (Isaiah 58:12; Nehemiah 1:3; 4:7- 17; 8: 1; Ezra 3: 1; 1 Peter 2:5; Ezekiel 13:4-5; Matthew 5:14; 1 Timothy 4: 1; Matthew 11:23; Luke 5:4; John 13:35; Jonah 3: 10; Genesis 18:32; Ephesians 2:14).
