It has recently been said, ‘there is no such thing as a ‘sinner’s prayer’ anywhere in the Bible? Here is one example . . .
“ . . . God would that none would perish, but that all would come to repentance . . .“ (2 Peter 3:9)
“The tax collector stood some distance away, not daring even to raise his eyes to heaven; but he beat his breast and said, “God, be merciful to me, a sinner.”” (Luke 18:13)
“ . . . But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart”, that is, the word of FAITH we are proclaiming . . . That if you confess with your mouth, Yeshua is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. (Romans 10:8-9)
There’s your pattern for a ‘sinner’s prayer’ . . . Repentance of sin, belief, acceptance and confession that Yeshua is Lord to the Glory of YHWH our Father. Shalom
