I’m a Christian, who constantly asks the Holy Spirit for guidance. I like to know that I’m making the best decision possible. As I reflected on my blog and its purpose, it occurred to me to add a prayer of salvation. While my blog is for Christians, it is equally for those that do not know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.I wondered, ‘Should I do that?’ Can I lead others to God in your name?’ ‘Are you sure it’s me Lord?’ ‘Am I understanding my calling correctly?’ ‘I’m still in seminary school, hoping to graduate with a masters in divinity.’ Then I remembered my passion.
My granddad was a humble, kind, gracious man. I knew, he believed in God. Yet, I was determined to hear him confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior when his time got small, just over a year ago. I didn’t hesitate to pray with him, read the Bible to him and talk about God’s saving grace through Jesus Christ.
I wrote the following Scriptures and Salvation Pray for him. I now share it with each of you.
