A.C.T.S. Prayers

Acts is one of my favorite books of the New Testament. But, did you know ACTS can also serve as form of prayer?

A - Adoration. Praise be to God in the Highest. Let God know how much you appreciate Him. Express your love for Him.

C - Confession. Confess your sins to him. Tell Him you know you've fallen short.

T - Thanksgiving. Glorify God with thanksgiving for his love, faithfulness and sacrifice of His Son, Christ Jesus, who died to save us from those sins.

S - Supplication. Tell God what you want, no matter how big or small. It may be selfish. Or, it may be something you hope for someone else. You can be quite candid with God. You can tell Him what you like and don't like. You can tell Him about someone you don't like without feeling guilty. You can tell Him you would like to be financially wealthy.  God understands. And, if you can't tell God what is in your head and heart, who can you tell?

(And, if your prayers are answered in the way you wished, you may want to spend some extra time on 'T'!)

Prayer: Lord, hear our prayers. Amen
