I would like to share a story with you, in hopes it will change your life like it has changed mine. A few months ago, my life hit rock bottom. I was addicted to smoking, drugs, alcohol, I was severely depressed and everything in my life was spiraling out of control. I was also a professed Atheist.
I didn’t believe in anything I couldn’t see or hear. I didn’t even believe in an afterlife. I tried everything to fix my life, various support groups, support from family and friends, even having other people spend my money for me so I couldn’t acquire drugs or alcohol. Now, I don’t know if you suffer from any of these problems, but I know there has to be some problem, somewhere in your life you need help with.
I’m going to share with you now how I found my solution. One night, bored, I desired to browse the internet. I came across some Christian website with the “sinners prayer” on it. The description said if I say this prayer and mean it in my heart, that Christ would come into my heart, save me from all the problems afflicting my life, and literally live inside of me.
I read this and thought to myself…wouldn’t it be cool if this was real, if I could just say a few words and make all the problems go away. Of course I thought it was all BS, but I figured I’d try it, because I already tried everything else with no success, why not just speak a few words and see what happens? Now, I never believed in God, the devil, Heaven, or Hell, but in the back of my mind I was seriously hoping this would work, this was my last shot to get things going right in my life again, so I said the prayer, asked God to get rid of my addictions and depressions, and just to make me happy and hopeful again, and I went to sleep.
The next morning I woke up entirely rejuvenated. I didn’t wake up tired and sluggish from doing drugs the previous night, I was happier then I had ever been in my entire life, I felt so bright and full of love and happiness that I thought it was just a mental thing, but it wasn’t, it was real, this actually worked, I said a prayer and it worked.
I knew it had to be the prayer, because I also had absolutely no desire to do any of the drugs I was previously addicted to, I literally quit everything that same day cold turkey, no relapses, no withdrawals, nothing at all. I was completely free from every single addiction that had previously plagued my life. I became a better person that day then I ever was in the passed. This works, my friend. This whole God, Jesus thing, it’s all real, very real.
This occurrence changed my life forever, and now I’m sharing this story with you, in hopes you can benefit from it, and it can change your life like it did for me. I am not a religious fanatic, I’m just an everyday person that went out on a limb and called out to God for help, and he answered, much to my disbelief. I’m sharing this story with you now, because I know someone is going to read this, do what I did, and have their life completely changed for the better. I do not know if you have accepted Jesus as your lord and saviour or not, but if you haven’t done so yet, I pray that you will take this story seriously and do what I did, because this is all 100% true.
If you would like to do this, here is the prayer I prayed, word for word: “Heavenly Father, I know that I have sinned against you and that my sins separate me from you. I am truly sorry. I now want to turn away from my sinful past and turn to you for forgiveness. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your Son, Jesus Christ, died for my sins, that He was raised from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become my Savior and 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 convict me when I sin. I pledge to grow in grace and knowledge of you. My greatest purpose in life is to follow your example and do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”…
I am merely sharing this story in hopes that it will change your life like it did mine, because God loves you so much, all he wants to do is help, and if he helped me, I KNOW he can help you. This seriously saved and changed my life forever, and I hope and pray that it will do the same for you. Say the prayer, get a Bible, start reading, learn about God, repent of your sins, pray and be saved. I hope this story helps you in some way. God bless you & keep you. Jesus is returning very very soon and we must all repent and live holy and obediently to be prepared!
