Salvation comes when you:
1) Admit you are a sinner and separated from God by your sin. "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" Romans 3:23 (NIV)
2) Believe that Christ died for your sins and as Lord, came back from the dead. "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord" Romans 6:23 (NIV)
3) Receive God's total forgiveness for your sins by trusting Christ as your Savior and being willing to surrender to Him. "This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe" Romans 3:22 (NIV)
4) Express your desire for Christ to be the Lord of your life. "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9 (NLV) If you are willing to surrender your life to Christ, and receive God's gift of eternal life, you can express this desire to God through prayer.
You might pray something like this:
Dear God, I am a sinner and want to be forgiven. I believe Jesus Christ, your son, died for my sins and is alive right now. I turn away from my sin and now surrender to Jesus Christ as my Lord and receive him into my life. I ask you, Lord Jesus, to control my life and I thank you for giving me eternal life.
