Prayer for Salvation and Baptism in the Holy Spirit
All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.—John 6:37
Heavenly Father, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. Your Word says, “Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts 2:21). I am calling on You. I pray and ask Jesus to come into my heart and be Lord over my life according to Romans 10:9-10:
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
I now confess that Jesus is Lord, and I believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead. I now receive Jesus as Lord over my life and confess that I am now reborn—I am a Christian—a child of Almighty God! I am saved!
You also said in Your Word, “If ye then, being evil, know how give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?” (Luke 11:13). Therefore Lord, I’m also asking You to fill me with the Holy Spirit. I now receive the Holy Spirit by faith; and say, Holy Spirit, rise up within me as I praise God. I fully expect to speak with other tongues as You give me the utterance (Act 2:4), in Jesus’ Name…Amen!
Now, begin to praise God for filling you with the Holy Spirit. Speak those words and syllables you receive—not in your own language, but the language given to you by the Holy Spirit. You have to use your own voice. God will not force you to speak. Don’t be concerned with how it sounds. It is a heavenly language! Continue with the blessing god has given you and pray in the Spirit every day.
Now, you are a born-again, Spirit-filled Believer. You’ll never be the same! Find a good church fellowship that boldly preaches God’s Word and obeys it. Get yourself a good study bible that you can understand and begin to read and study the Word every day.
Finally, keep checking in here on this blog to receive teaching on the Word of Faith so you can continue to learn to “…walk by faith, not by sight”—2 Corinthians 5:7.Have Faith1st ©2013 Faith1st Ministries
