Brother Gregory Wamsley is the founder of "The Steel And Concrete Mission Field Newsletter," a Christ-centered paper which he publishes monthly. At the end of each cover story he always includes this or a similar paragraph:
1. Admit you are a sinner,
2. Be willing to repent (turn away) from all sin,
3. Believe that Jesus died to save you, and
4. Accept him into your life as Savior and Lord.
God is not into long fancy prayers. Just pray and speak to him from your heart.
