My response to Bill The Reasoner who does not like the sinner's prayer: "Bill, I've read some of your comments about the "Sinner's Prayer", and I'm not sure if I understand you correctly. I agree that it is not a prayer that saves us, rather it is our willingness to repent and put our faith in Christ. However, the Bible says, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." I'm not sure how you can call upon the name of the Lord without actually talking to Him, which would be commonly referred to as a prayer. Being that it is coming from a sinner, where's the problem?"
