Praying With Purpose

Thoughts On Prayer


A.C.T.S.

Take steps of faith and believe whom God is and what God has done for you (us).  Follow the guidelines of the Lord’s Prayer and know that God will never leave you or forsake you and that God is with you, sometimes carrying you through the difficult, shadow of death, moments of life.


A.C.T.S. is: Adoration, Confession, Thanks and Supplication.


ADORATION

Giving glory to God, acknowledging who He is and what He has done. 

 (I.E. - Almighty, Creator, Healer, Provider)


CONFESSION

Admitting your sins, and speaking them out loud to God.

(I.E. – “I am a sinner, I have fallen or failed “here” or “here”)


THANKS

Showing appreciation for all God has done, personally, in community, nationally and globally.


SUPPLICATION

Asking God for your needs and desires.  

Believing God can bring them to pass according to His will.


Prayer (Matthew 6:5-14)

“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. 

Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.  

But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.  

And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.  

Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

“This, then, is how you should pray:


‘Our Father in heaven, Come boldly before the throne of grace with a solemn address

Hallowed be your name, God is glorified in all His perfections

Your kingdom come, The Kingdom of God is at hand

Your will be done, Align our will, submit ourselves and ask that God’s way triumphs

On earth as it is in heaven. In our lives each day as it is throughout Heaven

Give us today our daily bread. We need God in all areas of our lives – A daily need

And forgive us our debts, Our punishment for sin may be cancelled, we don’t come into condemnation

As we also have forgiven our debtors. We must forgive the wrongs of others against us

And lead us not into temptation, Whenever we are tempted, help us, give us a way out from it

But deliver us from the evil one. Deliver us from ourselves, our own evil hearts: from evil men: from sin

For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
