Description was from an article from Dave Miller in section 2. Thank you Dave Miller.

The Sinner’s Prayer is a tool to accomplish a biblical purpose. 

Salvation does not come by praying a prayer. It comes by repentance and faith. It comes when a man or women is broken and turns to God in faith. That is what must take place and it is not simply rhetoric. We must never give people the idea that reciting a prayer is somehow a saving act, or that going forward is, or that getting baptized or taking communion or doing good works or anything else is. Salvation comes by the grace of God to those who feel the weight of their sin’s guilt, call to God in repentance and place their faith in Christ.
