    Lightbulb to be sure and to make sure, Is same meaning or not

    I would like to know to be sure and to make sure, Is same meaning or similar in this sentense

    "My wife and I are very serious about wanting
    your help. Don't blame the British. This is dangerous for all of us,
    and they want to be sure."

    Can i use Want to make sure? And when i talk I sholud be say Want to be sure or Want to make sure?

    For good if someone edit this sentense to correctly, I don't sure my question I write shall be improve or not

    I hope everyone in this forum can understand what i mean.
