So you are witnessing to someone and you ask them if they want to pray the sinners prayer. How do you know if they are ready to be saved or if they are just praying a prayer because you asked them to? Remember that it is God who saves people and not just praying a prayer. The prayer must be a prayer of faith.
In my book, "The Four Positions of the Holy Spirit", I explain the THREE evidences we can see showing that God is working on the heart of the lost person which we are speaking with. If the person prays a prayer without these three things we have created a tare, (a religious lost person), within the body of Christ.
Also in my book I give the FIVE evidences or proofs that reveal if a person is truly saved or not. Have you ever met someone claiming to be saved, a Christian brother or sister and yet you just can't get a peace about it. There are ways to know for sure. Our Lord Jesus Christ says that we judge a tree by its fruit. I list the FIVE fruit that we can look for.
