Evidence satan is behind your music!
That is if you are listening to popular secular music.
Obviously I believe Satan and his angels literally exists. The Bible is clear that Satan is deceiving the whole world (Rev. 12:9). You may have heard the greatest trick the devil has ever pulled was convincing the world he doesn’t exist, the truth is he really does exist. This post should provide convincing evidence for the skeptics of the existence of Satan or at least the existence of the spirit world.
Several “artists” have admitted to “selling” their souls to Satan for fame and fortune. Many artists have admitted themselves to channeling or being a conduit for evil spirits to create or perform their music. Remember, these are the artists saying themselves and the people around them that have said they are possessed or feel like the music is channeled through them. Satan is using a lot of today’s pop music to break down people’s morals, deceive the masses, and pull people away from Jesus or blind the minds of unbelievers from the light of the glorious Gospel of Jesus so they can go to the lake of fire where he and his angels are headed on the day of Judgment.
What exactly is channeling? One source reads:
“Channeling is where a human enters into an ‘altered state of consciousness’ which allows the person to become a conduit or ‘channel’ for the spirit of another, who can then use the channel to speak and take limited actions. This is, in essence, what a medium does to communicate with the dead. The channeling popular in some New Age circles is more extensive than the traditional medium, and sometimes involves the identity of the channeled being taking full control of the channel for a short period of time.”
According to John Nevius those without any prior musical talent might become competent singers under possession. “It may be said in general of possessed persons, that sometimes people who cannot sing, are able when possessed to do so; others who ordinarily cannot write verses, when possessed compose in rhyme with ease.” Demon Possession and Allied Themes
What does the Bible say about these spirits? Leviticus 19:31 reads “Regard not them that have FAMILIAR SPIRITS, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.”
Deut. 18: 9 – 12 reads “When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a CONSULTER OF FAMILIAR SPIRITS, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.”
Leviticus 20:6 reads “And the soul that turneth after such as have FAMILIAR SPIRITS, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.”
Leviticus 20:27 reads “A MAN ALSO OR A WOMAN THAT HATH A FAMILIAR SPIRIT, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.”
A lot of the following is covered in the video but there is some info that is not.
Let’s start with Tori Amos.
Tori Amos said:
“I think music comes through dimensions, it`s arrogant to think you can create music on your own, there`s a co-creation going on. I don`t know with whom, but there is this well that we all tap into”. On other occasions she has described the songs themselves as spiritual entities. “I feel like it’s really kind of nice they come and use my body to say what they want to say. It’s an energy force that comes and visits me.”(Axcess; Volume 2, Issue 2; p. 49)
She once said “I wanted to marry Lucifer I don’t consider Lucifer an evil force. I feel his presence with his music. I feel like he comes and sits on my piano”. She even made a song dedicated to Lucifer. In this performance she gets down right freaky.
Another video that shows she seems possessed.
Lady Gaga apparently gets her music from demons. She said herself that she has the spirit of her dead aunt living inside her (which is really a demon impersonating her aunt) and that the spirit of Alexander McQueen wrote a song for her called Judas where I presume she expresses sympathy for Judas who betrayed Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. She also says she bought a ‘ghost buster machine’ worth thousands of dollars because she said she is convinced evil spirits are haunting her. She also expressed that she had terrible nightmares with occult imagery but she would use it as inspiration for her stage acts which would consist of a mock self sacrifice and hanging by a noose. Satan is obviously using Gaga for his agenda – brainwashing the masses. [Sources 1, 2]

In 1974, Joni Mitchell told the press of a male spirit who helps her write music.
“Joni Mitchell credits her creative powers to a ‘male muse’ she identifies as Art. He has taken so much control of not only her music, but her life, that she feels married to him, and often roams naked with him on her 40-acre estate. His hold over her is so strong that she will excuse herself from parties and forsake lovers whenever he ‘calls’”
(Why Knock Rock? p. 112, citing Time magazine, Dec. 16, 1974, p. 39).
John Lennon and the Beatles
John Lennon is believed to have “sold” his soul or made a deal with the devil, in fact he said it himself. There is even a book about it called The Lennon Prophecy. The Beatles channeled evil spirits as those in his inner circle revealed. John Lennon once said “When the real music comes to me it has nothing to do with ’cause I’m just a channel. It’s given to me and I transcribe it like a channel.” He once referred to himself as a hollow temple in which the spirits would inhabit him then leave to be inhabited by another. When asked why The Beatles were so successful he said himself “I my soul to the devil” (Ray Coleman, Lennon, McGraw-hill)
Ono said “… It was as if several people gathered around a table and a ghost appeared. It was that kind of communication. They [The Beatles] were like mediums. They weren’t conscious of all they were saying, but it was coming through them” (YOKO ONO, The Playboy Interviews with John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Berkeley, 1982).
Lennon said: “It’s amazing that it [the tune to ‘In My Life’] just came to me in a dream. That’s why I don’t profess to know anything. I think music is very mystical” (John Lennon, “The Beatles Come Together,” Reader’s Digest, March 2001).
Paul McCartney commenting on how he received one of his songs: “The music to ‘Yesterday’ came in a dream. The tune just came complete. You have to believe in magic. I can’t read or write music” (PAUL MCCARTNEY, interview on Larry King Live, CNN, June 12, 2001).
Derick Tater, the press officer for the The Beatles said, “The Beatles completely shock me, they’re completely anti-christ. I’m anti-christ too, but they’re so antichrist it shocks me.”
John Lennon wrote “In His Own Write.” This is how he refers to Jesus Christ, “Jesus wiped his face and turned the other cheese.” (Mocking the teachings of Jesus) His description “…a garlic eating, stinking, little yellow, greasy, fascist bastard.”
Kurt Cobain did say his life’s goal was to “get stoned and worship Satan” (op. cit. Sandford, p. 42).
Kurt Cobain was obsessed with Satanist Anton Levay, Cobain even wanted Levay to record a song with him. Cobain was known to desecrate churches by writing “God is gay” and other blasphemies. He it was reported that he was involved in witchcraft. Indeed he did channel demons as Cobain is described as “stumbling on melodies by means he himself didn’t fully understand.” (op. cit. Sanders, p. 70).
His widow, after his suicide, would state that “Kurt had a lot of personal inner [expletive deleted] demons, a lot of frailties and physical ailments.” Sandford would state in his biography, “He was a diffident, yet aggressive personality who struggled with demons that drove and tormented him” (Sandford p. 97)
It said that Cobain killed himself because the demonic entities stopped channeling lyrics through him. In his suicide note he would write, “I haven’t felt the excitement of listening to as well as creating music, along with really writing, for too many years now.” Sandford has stated, “In his suicide note, Cobain despaired that his muse [demon] had flown south…” (Ibid. p. 361).
Brian Wilson, from The Beach Boys who once said “We were doing witchcraft, trying to make witchcraft music” admitted that he was tormented by voices in his head that would distract and torment him. Records president Larry Waronker claims to have encountered at least five different entities that use Brian Wilson’s body as their home.
Jimi Hendrix believed he was possessed by demonic spirits. His girlfriend admitted it as well. Hendrix begged his girlfriend for help and he felt that the voices in his head were tormenting him.
Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath
Black Sabbath ‘s Ozzy Osbourne admitted he was being used by some outside external force:
“I really wish I knew why I’ve done some of the things I’ve done over the years. Sometimes I think that I’m possessed by some outside spirit. A few years ago, I was convinced of that – I thought I truly was possessed by the devil. I remember sitting through the Exorcist a dozen times, saying to myself, ‘Yeah, I can relate to that.’” (Hit Parader, Nov., 1984, p. 49)
As a matter of fact the whole band had experienced dark, demonic forces as they dabbled with the occult.
“Geezer’s encounters with the supernatural continued. During recording of Sabbath Bloody Sabbath in Bel Air, the bassist felt an ominous presence fill his bedroom. He looked up to see several specters glaring at him from above with overpowering effect. Awash with fear, he immediately awakened Bill, Tony, and Ozzy to tell them what has happened. Geezer soon discovered that all of his fellow bandmates had experienced similar events. . . To Sabbath it was obvious that a dark, ominous cloud was looming over them.”(Black Sabbath: The Ozzy Osbourne Years, p. 19)
The dark history of Black Sabbath is filled with very real, demonic, supernatural visitations and experiences.
“While rehearsing new material, the band formerly known as Earth experienced a supernatural experience. Geezer and Tony were playing new riffs for Ozzy and Bill when, much to everyone’s surprise, they both strummed the same notes at the same tempo – although neither had ever before heard the other one play the piece! Convinced that this was an omen, Geezer christened the song and the group Black Sabbath,. . .”
(Black Sabbath: The Ozzy Osbourne Years, p. 8)
“I’d sort of dabbled in Black Magic, not practicing it, but I was interested in it. All these horrible things kept happening to me – a lot of my aunts and uncles started dying and I was seeing all these bloody things visiting me during the night.”
(Geezer, Seconds, #39, pp. 63-64)
“I was seeing all kinds of things at the time, and not through drugs,’ Butler reveals. ‘Ever since I was a kid, I’d have premonitions and weird things would appear to me.’”
(Geezer Butler, Guitar World, July 2001, p. 67)
Bill Ward, drummer for Sabbath, admits there was a supernatural presence that inspired Sabbath. It was so real that Ward confesses, it was as if there was actually a “fifth member” in the group.
“I believe that Black Sabbath was a phenomenon. On that basis, when I look back now at the band, I have felt that there was a fifth member, if you like. . . So I’ve always considered that there was some way where we were able to channel energy, and that energy was able to be, from another source, if you like, like a higher power or something, that was actually doing the work. I’ve often thought of us just being actually just the earthly beings that played the music because it was uncanny. Some of this music came out extremely uncanny.”
(Mike Stark, Black Sabbath An Oral History, p. 6)
Elvis Presley is believed to have been demonic possessed. He openly admitted that he was used by a hierarchy of spirit beings. People who knew him personally said he had occult powers.
Carlos Santana admitted he channeled a spirit to make his music. He even has a name for it Metatron:
“Metatron is an angel. Santana has been in regular contact with him since 1994. Carlos will sit here facing the wall, the candles lit. He has a yellow legal pad at one side, ready for the communications that will come. ‘It’s kind of like a fax machine,’ he says.”
SOURCE: Cover Story: The Epic Life of Carlos Santana: Santana : Rolling Stone (March 16, 2000)
“…you meditate and you got the candles, you got the incense and you’ve been chanting, and all of a sudden you hear this voice: ‘Write this down’” (Carlos Santana, Rolling Stone magazine, March 16, 2000, p. 41)
Carlos said “Sometimes I’m not aware I can do some of these things on my guitar, because in reality I’m not doing them, they are being done through me, which is one of the highest places anyone can reach.”
“I am the string and the Supreme is the musician. And that’s all I am, because I go out of tune just like a string goes out of tune.”[Source]
Little Richard, one of the pioneers and architects of rock ‘n’ roll, knows who is the “god” of rock ‘n’ roll.
“My true belief about Rock ‘n’ Roll — is this: I believe this kind of music is DEMONIC. . . A lot of the beats in music today are taken from voodoo, from the voodoo DRUMS.” Little Richard (Charles White, The Life and Times of Little Richard, p. 197)
“I was directed and commanded by another power. The power of DARKNESS. . . The power of the DEVIL. SATAN.” Little Richard (Charles White, The Life and Times of Little Richard, pp. 205-206)
As for using rock music as a “tool” for the Lord — here’s what Little Richard said:
“Rock ‘n’ roll doesn’t glorify God. You can’t drink out of God’s cup and the devil’s cup at the same time. I was one of the pioneers of that music, one of the builders. I know what the blocks are made of because I built them.” (The Dallas Morning News, Oct. 29, 1978, p. 14A)
Alanis Morissette said “A lot of the songs were written in 15-30 minutes, very stream-of-consciousness, as though it was being channeled through us” (Alanis Morissette, quoted from Hells Bells2 by Eric Holmberg).
Angus Young of AC-DC
Angus Young, lead guitarist for AC-DC, is called the “guitar demon”; and he admitted that something takes control of the band during their concerts: “…it’s like I’m on automatic pilot. By the time we’re halfway through the first number someone else is steering me. I’m just along for the ride. I become possessed when I get on stage” (Hit Parader, July 1985, p. 60).
Marc Storace a vocalist with the heavy-metal band Krokus, told Circus magazine: “You can’t describe it except to say it’s like a mysterious energy that comes from the metaphysical plane and into my body. It’s almost like being a medium…”
Rubert Fipp said:”That certain feeling happened to me in a big way quite often with the first King Crimson. Amazing things would happen–I mean, telepathy, qualities of energy, things that I had never experienced before with music – you can’t tell whether the music is playing the musician or the musician is playing the music” (Robert Fripp, guitarist for KING CRIMSON, Down Beat, June 1985, p. 61).
John McLaughlin, leader of MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA, testified: “One night we were playing and suddenly the spirit entered into me, and I was playing, but it was no longer me playing” (The Rock Report)
Porno for Pyros’ guitarist Peter DiStephano echoed McLaughlin when he observed “A lot of that guitar playing is not me. We figure we got help from something more powerful.” (Time 7/5/98, p.26).
Glen Tipton of Judas Priest says, “I just go crazy when I go onstage – it’s like someone else takes over my body” (Hit Parader, Fall 1984).
David Lee Roth
In describing what a Van Halen concert is like, David Lee Roth commented, “I’m gonna abandon my spirit to them, which is actually what I attempt to do. You work yourself up into that state and you fall in supplication of the demon gods” (Rock, April 1984).
Joe Cocker, who contorts grotesquely during his performances, claims that something “seizes” him when he songs rock & roll (Time magazine, cited by Bob Larson, Rock and the Church, p. 66).
Ginger Baker, drummer for the popular ‘60s band CREAM, said: “It happens to us quite often–it feels as though I’m not playing my instrument, something else is playing it and that same thing is playing all three of our instruments. That’s what I mean when I say it’s frightening sometimes. Maybe we’ll all play the same phrase out of nowhere. It happens very often with us” (Bob Larson, Rock and the Church, p. 66).
John Frusciante of Red Hot Chili Peppers
“The formation and recording of Stadium Arcadium took place at “The Mansion”, the former home of Harry Houdini where the Chili Peppers had recorded their 1991 breakthrough Blood Sugar Sex Magik. Given the house’s reputation for being “haunted,” guitarist John Frusciante recalled that he felt “there were beings of higher intelligence controlling what I was doing, and I didn’t know how to talk about it or explain it…it was very clear to me that the music was coming from somewhere other than me.””
Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones not only claimed that the Stones songs come en masse as though they were at a séance, but he told The Los Angeles Times that his song, “Demon”, is biographical and that he, himself, is possessed by four or five demons. In “Demon” Richards declares, “It’s such a mess. Demon in me, demon in me. It’s living’ in me, the demon in me.”
“We receive our songs by inspiration, like at a séance” (Keith Richards of the ROLLING STONES, Rolling Stone, May 5, 1977, p. 55).
Jim Morrison himself believed he was a sort of a shaman and that spirits used him for his music. His producer Paul Rothschild said that the most pivotal part of his life is when this spirit entered him. This is all stated in the book “Break on: The Life and Death of Jim Morrison”. At Venice Beach before he became famous he said “In that year there was an intense visitation of energy. I left school and went down to the beach to live. slept on a roof… I met the SPIRIT OF MUSIC. AN APPEARANCE OF HE DEVIL on a Venice canal. Running., I saw SATAN…” (The Lost Writings of Jim Morrison)
The Door’s photographer, Frank Lisciandro, stated that, “Jim drank to quiet the ceaseless clamor of the demons, ghosts and spirits. He drank because there were demons and voices and spirits shouting inside of his head and he found that one of the ways to quell them was with alcohol.” (Break on Through, p. 2*)
Ray Manaxrek of the Doors, says of Morrison:
“He was not a performer. He was not an entertainer. He was not a showman. He was a shaman. He was possessed.”
Nicki Minaj has confessed that she has “a little gay boy” living inside her, which is really a demon impersonating a little gay boy. The Right Thru Me rapper, who recently revealed that she is planning to stay single, has admitted that she has a homosexual alter ego, called Roman. Speaking to YOU magazine, Minaj claimed: “Roman’s a little gay boy who lives in me.”
She explained: “Every time I talk he sort of just appears and I tell him, ‘Roman, you know, stop it, you’ve gone mad, I tell you, mad.’ He’s an outlet to say what I need to say but sometimes don’t want to.”
Here is video of Minaj talking about how they conjured up Roman. She also claims she has other demons… er “alter egos” named Barbie and Martha
In his autobiography “The Doggfather”, Snoop Dogg says the devil came to him to make a deal that he would be rich and famous in exchange for his soul. Snoop accepted the devil’s offer (by his own words) and identifies that the point at which Calvin Broadus dies Snoop Dog was born.
The so called father of Rock and Roll Robert Johnson believed to have “sold” his soul for guitar playing abilities and fame. People who knew him spoke about it. Video: Did Robert Johnson really sell his soul?
Katy Perry said she sold her soul to the devil. Tongue in cheek? Probably not. [Video]
Eminem, who according to Spin Magazine channels a spirit called Slim Shady, said he sold his soul in his rap song “Goodbye Hollywood”
“What about math, how come I wasn’t ever good at that
It’s like the boy in the bubble, who never could adapt, i’m trapped
If I could go back, I never woulda rapped
I sold my soul to the devil, i’ll never get it back
I just wanna leave this game with level head intact”
Also in his song “My Darling he retells the deal he had with the devil.
Michael Jackson was heavily involved in the occult. According to CNN, he would take blood baths and tried to put curses on people such as Steven Spielberg. He admitted he had a room full of mirrors so he could communicate with a spirit. Jackson said he would go to sleep for days with the aid of drugs so he can get songs from the spirits or else the music of the spirits would be given to Prince. Jackson said:
“I wake up from dreams and go ‘Wow, put this down on paper,’ the whole thing is strange. You hear the words, everything is right there in front of your face. I feel that somewhere, someplace it’s been done and I’m just a courier bringing it into the world”
(MICHAEL JACKSON, Rolling Stone, Feb. 17, 1983).
Michael also stated:
“When I hit the stage it’s all of a sudden a ‘magic’ from somewhere that comes and the spirit just hits you, and you just lose control of yourself”
(Michael Jackson, Teen Beat: A Tribute to Michael Jackson, Summer 1984, p. 27).
Screamin’ Jay Hawkins
The original recording of “I Put a Spell on You” was done after the Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and his band members got drunk and “some type of presence seemed to seize him.” He began “grunting, growling, screaming, gurgling in strange unknown tongues, and wildly dancing around the studio” (Heartbeat of the Dragon, p. 40).
Steven Halpern, one of the best-known New Age composers, testifies, “I started recording what I received in trance or altered states…. I ended up being guided.”[Source]
Dave Sabo of Skid Row
“I am very aware that when I write a good song I am just acting like as a messenger. It comes from a higher source. I’m not so egotistical that I think I done this all on my own. I’m very, very aware there is a higher source… I am just the messenger”[Source]
Pete Townshend of The Who
“When I am on the stage I am not in control of myself at all. I don’t even know who I am. I am not this rational person where I can sit down and talk to you. If you walked on stage with a microphone in the middle of a concert I’ll probably come close to killing you.”[Source]
Jimmy Page and Robert Plant
Jimmy Page , who was a devout follower of Satanist Aliester Crowley, was believed to be used as a vehicle for demonic spirits in his music. Other members of Led Zeppelin were said to experience ‘automatic writing’: “He [Robert Plant ] often remarked that he could feel his pen being pushed by some higher authority.” (Stephen Davis, Hammer of the Gods, p. 262).
Robert Plant and Jimmy Page of LED ZEPPELIN both claim that they don’t know who wrote their occultic song Stairway to Heaven. Plant testified: “Pagey had written the chords and played them for me. I was holding the paper and pencil, and for some reason, I was in a very bad mood. Then all of a sudden my hand was writing out words. – I just sat there and looked at the words and then I almost leaped out of my seat” (Robert Plant, quoted by Stephen Davis, Hammer of the Gods, p. 164).
Prince admitted he has 2 other people living inside him [really evil spirits] and that he changed his name to Formerly Known as Prince because he didn’t know what the spirits wanted to call him.
In a 2009 interview with Rolling Stone, Madonna said, “Sometimes when I’m writing songs, I’m just channeling.
“I made all the choices I made because I needed to. I obviously needed to tell that story. When you’re an artist and you’re doing something creative, at a certain point, your practical brain shuts off and you’re submitting to something, and you’re channeling something.” [Source]
Janelle Monae explained on 106 & Park what it’s like to perform: “Electrifying. I don’t choreograph pretty much anything I do,” the singer said. “So I’m must merely creating art right in front of my eyes and the audience’s eyes. It’s like a spiritual, out-of-body experience. I feel very possessed.”[Source]
Beyonce confessed that she is controlled by an external force. She’s calls the entity Sasha Fierce . She said it takes control of her when she performs on stage. [Source]
Beyonce said, “…I have out-of-body experiences [on stage]. If I cut my leg, if I fall, I don’t even feel it. I’m so fearless, I’m not aware of my face or my body.” Beyonce, Marie Claire interview, October 2008
“When I see video of myself on stage or TV I’m like, ‘Who is that girl?’. That’s not me, I wouldn’t dare do that.” Beyonce, September 2003
“I have someone else that takes over when it’s time for me to work and when I’m on stage…” Beyonce Press Statement, October 2008
“I wouldn’t like Sasha if I met her offstage.” Beyonce, Parade Magazine, December 2006
Jay-Z, also known as Jay-Hova which is blatant blasphemy, says himself that he gets possessed by the spirits.
The Bible warns to test the spirit to see if it is of God (1 John 4:1). Clearly the spirit is not of God as it doesn’t glorify Jesus Christ but rather glorifies Jay-Z and the things of this world.
The Bible is clear that Satan has control of the world until Christ returns. Satan even offered Jesus the kingdoms of the world if Jesus worshiped him so surely he can offer people fame and fortune if you served him.
Satan certainly has musical abilities. It is believed he was a minister of music in heaven before he got kicked out because iniquity was found in him. In Ezekiel 28:13 – “Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: THE WORKMANSHIP OF THY TIMBRELS AND OF THY PIPES WAS PREPARED IN THE DAY THAT THOU WAST CREATED.”
Isaiah14:11-12 “Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols [stringed instruments]: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!”
We only have to look around us at the music industry and its “Rock, rap and Pop stars” to see how much of an influence Satan has on music and its corruption, it is most certainly one of the devils strongest tools to corrupt the Word of God and influence the lost away from Godliness and to place strongholds on them via music. The signs and symbols are prevalent in music videos and in stage performances. Indeed, the devil is the pied piper leading multitudes away from God.
Spiritual warfare is certainly going on: “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities , against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” — Ephesians 6:12
The truth is God created all things for Himself (Col. 1:16) which includes music but the enemy wants to corrupt and pervert music for his own means and purposes.
There is a battle going on for your soul. The choice is either Jesus Christ or Satan. Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Heaven!!
“I am the way, the truth, and the life; NO MAN cometh unto the Father, BUT BY ME.” — Jesus Christ (John 14:6)

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you can receive Him into your heart and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
