The Sinner’s Prayer for Kids

The Sinner’s Prayer for Kids


When your child understands that he or she needs Jesus as Savior  and is ready to make a commitment to God, here is a simple prayer that you can pray with him or her. Remember to explain to your children that these are not “magic” words that will save them, but that they should mean what they say with their hearts.

Lord Jesus I know I am a sinner.

I believe you died for me on the cross so that I might be saved. Right now I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. I open my heart to You.

Come into my heart Lord Jesus.

I receive you as my Lord and Savior.


Thank you, Jesus, for forgiving all my sins, and giving me eternal life.

In Jesus’ name, Amen!
