Does the bible teach that sinners should pray to receive salvation? Well-known revivalists and evangelists of the 20th century popularized this practice by calling people, often by the hundreds or even thousands, to the platform to repeat a prayer and receive Christ into their hearts. Religious pamphlets often conclude with a version of this prayer for the reader to pray if they desire to be saved. Is this taught in the scriptures? Were sinners in the book of Acts ever told to pray to receive Christ into their hearts to save them or were they told to respond to the gospel in another way? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak we examine this popular practice in light of the bible.
