A quick search in my Bible App for the word “pray” brings up 436 results, wow! This tells me that prayer is important to God, and we know from reading scriptures that Jesus prayed regularly. There are so many ways to pray and so many things to pray about. Sometimes when I don’t know where to begin, I walk myself through this acronym, ACTS.
A: Adoration – Praise God for who he is!
C: Confession – Confess your sins.
T: Thanksgiving – Thank God for…(this day, creation, someone special, his promises, something that recently brought you joy)
S: Supplication – Ask God earnestly and humbly for what you need.
This always brings me peace and a sense of confidence in who God is in every situation. Prayer connects us to God and helps us develop a close relationship with him. Take time to pray today and then make it a part of everyday.
