“Now, I want to be clear (absolutely clear). It’s not (it’s absolutely not) that praying a prayer in and of itself is bad. Surely, calling out to Christ for salvation involves prayer. Surely, many of us were truly saved when we called out to God in prayer like this. Now it doesn’t necessarily have to look like what we’ve labeled a “sinner’s prayer” today. We don’t necessarily see such a prayer in Scripture, but Scripture definitely exhorts us to urge people to call on the name of the Lord and be saved.” You can read David Platt’s sermon by clicking here.
