It's easier then you think.
Don't let the lingo unnerve you..."Praying"=talking to God.
"Sin" = the wrong stuff we do in God's eyes- nobody else's.
"Repenting" = knowing that your life stinks because of your sins and you want a new direction(towards God) And
you are making the move to get there.
"Salvation" = WOW, that's a lot to put in a short sentence but... let's just say because we sin, we need some
one to help us get right before God. Jesus Christ is the only one who is qualified to be our Savior.
"The Holy Spirit" = Is the person who is (also apart of God and Jesus) who becomes apart of you. He guarantees
your salvation and makes it possible for God to work in your life directly.
How to apply it to your life:
Pray to God. Ask Him to forgive you for your sins. Tell Him that you are repenting and you want Him to lead the way.Tell
Him you want Jesus to be your Lord & Savior and you want to start a new life with Him through His Holy Spirit.
He has already promised that if you are serious that He will. (You might want to say thank you, too!)
When it comes to your new life, you don't do it all, He will do the hard stuff that you can't.
Getting right with God may bring forth tears- that's a good thing- sometimes you need to get it out. Tears are a sign
of a tender heart and that is a gift from God!
Have questions- just ask Him. You may not get the answer you are looking for, or when you want it, but you'll get the
best one. Trusting Him is everything- the more you trust the easier it gets.
If your not sure how to start talking to Him see the prayer suggestions below.

~ A great verse to help:
1st John 1:9
Dear Heavenly Father,
I know that I am a sinner but I want to begin a relationship with You.
I believe that Jesus is your son & died on the cross to pay the penalty for my sins. I believe that You raised Him
from the dead for my salvation.
Please forgive me of my sins and help me to turn away from them all. Please send your Holy Spirit into my heart that You
may be my Lord and Savior. Thank you!
In Jesus Name, amen.
