Stephen grew up the son of a traveling evangelist, but the man he knew in private and the one he knew in public, were not the same. Due to the hypocrisy he witnessed as a child, he believed Jesus was simply fantasy. As he grew into his early teens he wanted nothing to do with Christianity. At this time of his life, he fell into extreme drug addiction. Eventually, becoming a crystal meth addict, for over 5 years. During this dark chapter, someone gave him a book about Jesus, which he miraculously accepted.

One night, at 3am, he set in a bed reading the book, with drugs next to him on the side table. That night, as he read, he was acutely aware of the presence of God, in the the room. Stephen began to have an internal dialogue with the Lord, he knew He was real but didn’t know how to quiet the life of addiction he had known for so long. In that moment, with a thought more powerful than he could ever have imagined, He felt the Lord say, “You don’t have to do it alone, because I will do it!” and in that moment, Stephen believed Him and gave his life to Christ. He found himself with a willpower not his own, and overnight, went from addiction to redemption. He had come to personally and intimately know the God that saves.

GOD THAT SAVES | Iron Bell Music feat Stephen McWhirter

If you want to ask God to save you right now! Pray these words below.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. Today I declare that I have turned my back on you BUT now I proclaim that I am turning back and running towards You. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven.

The past few weeks I’ve been hearing your call deep inside me, and I have a new longing to know you personally and intimately. At this moment I trust Christ alone as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence.

I am lost without you, and making a mess of my life, trying to do it my way. I want to follow and serve you and give my life over to you. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Father, I take you at your word. Thank you for the assurance that you will walk with me through life. Thank you for hearing this prayer. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

If you prayed this prayer and gave your life over to Christ, then please reach out to us so we can pray with you and support you in this decision.
