After sharing the Gospel with someone, and they are ready to repent and believe, do you lead them in a "sinner's prayer", or let them seek after God on their own? This has been on my mind a lot lately and I'm not really sure how to handle it anymore. After sharing the Gospel and the person was ready, the next logical step for me was to lead them in a prayer, but now, I'm not so sure. I know that people can be saved through being lead in prayer, but they could also wind up trusting in that prayer to save them instead of trusting in the finished work of Jesus. I was just wondering what everyone elses thoughts were on this.
Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips. Let not my heart be drawn to what is evil, to take part in wicked deeds with men who are evildoers; let me not eat of their delicacies.
