HOW TO PRAY USING THE A.C.T.S MODEL
We use the ACTS prayer model to guide us in prayer.
Adoration is an act of praise and worship. Adoring the Lord means offering him the affections of your
heart and paying honor to him for his mighty power, wisdom, strength, goodness, mercy and love.
In the act of confession you are asking God to remove your old, sinful ways of living. God is faithful and just to forgive sins.
Through confession we are made new and more like Jesus. When you repent of a specific area, ask God to transform
you into the opposite (ie- ask for joy instead of depression).
Thank God for what he has already done in your life and reflect on the many blessings in your life.
Thank him for his faithfulness in keeping promises in your life, those of your family and friends, and the circumstances in your life.
Ask the Lord to give you the desires of your heart. Align your heart with His will through
reading and praying Scripture. Remind God of his promises to you.
