How to Be Sure You Are Going to Heaven
To prepare to meet God and be absolutely sure that you are going to heaven ...
All you need to do is admit that you are a sinner, believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that he died in your place to pay the penalty for all your sins, and ask God for his forgiveness and accept his gift of eternal life. The following prayer will help you do this.
"Dear God, I confess that I am a sinner and am sorry for all the wrongs/sins I have committed. I believe that your Son, Jesus Christ, died on the cross in my place to pay the penalty for all my sins. Please forgive me. I invite you, Jesus, to come into my heart and life to be my Lord and Savior. I commit and trust my life to you. Please give me the desire to be what you want me to be and to do what you want me to do. Thank you for dying for my sins, for your free pardon, for your gift of eternal life, and for hearing and answering my prayer. Amen."

Here's Great Assurance
If you genuinely prayed the prayer to invite Jesus Christ into your life and truly meant it, you are now a true Christian and have the gift of a new spiritual life as well as eternal life. You are also a child of God and a member of his family.6 God promised this. Choose to accept it. Take it by faith and not feelings. Feelings change but God's Word never does.
God's Word says, "And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life."7
When you pray to receive Christ into your life, you have a brand new spiritual life and this life needs care and nurturing just as your physical life does.
