A - ADMIT that you are a sinner in need of salvation. Romans 3:23 - For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
B - BELIEVE that Jesus Christ died for your sins. Romans 5:8 - But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
C - CONFESS Jesus as Lord over your life. Romans 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.
Understand that there are no magic words that save you. There is no secret prayer formula that results in your salvation. By praying "the sinner's prayer" you are coming to God for the first time and asking Him to forgive you for your sin, rebellion, and rejection of Him. This prayer is simply the very first step in an ongoing life of obedience and faith in Christ.
If you are not sure how to pray for Jesus Christ to forgive you of your sins, below is an example of something you might say.
"Dear God, I know that I am a sinner, and because of my sin, I am eternally separated from You. I no longer want to reject, or disregard You, so in the best way that I know how, I am asking You to forgive me for my sins, and I ask that You would cover me in the shed blood of Your only begotten Son, Jesus. I am now willing to turn from my sins and submit to Jesus Christ as my own personal savior. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."
