What must we do to be saved by God? We need to pray to God and ask for salvation. We must repent. We must confess our sins and ask for God’s help as we forgive all peoples who have sinned against us. We must have faith that God is able to grant salvation. The Lord’s Prayer is a prayer that Jesus told some disciples to use. Pray with this prayer or something similar:
“Our Father, Who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom. and the power, and the glory forever. Amen”
I found out that in gotquestions.org, “What Was the Old Testament Way of Salvation”, that faith was the way that people found salvation. This way of finding salvation occurred long before the laws in the Bible were written. We now know that belief in God and good works lead to salvation.
I am going to put quotations down here about salvation. Many will be about Jesus. However, God never intended for Jesus to be the only way to salvation. Jesus is the way to salvation for Christians who believe in Jesus as a savior.

Ask for forgiveness and forgive people who have sinned against you. God helps us forgive other people. He helps carry that load.
