Hello beautifully & masterfully crafted ones!
I decided to do a prayer guide that expounds upon what I’ll be teaching my students next week. Have you heard of the prayer method, “ACTS?” It’s an acronym for prayer and it goes like this:
A – Adoration
C – Confession
T – Thanksgiving
S – Supplication
I’m sure there are books and guides about this type of prayer. However, I wanted to personally and purposefully take time in the Scriptures to craft a unique way to approach this method. Maybe through this short guide, it will awaken a fresh perspective, fueling renewed communication between you and your Creator (and let’s face it – the One who created YOU is pretty amazing!).
Okay, so as you may know, Acts is a book in the Bible (New Testament), and it’s called that because it’s a narrative record of the “acts of the apostles.” The beloved disciples, along with Paul and others’ acts are recorded in this book by the doctor, Luke. You’ll recognize Luke from his thorough Gospel account, a.k.a. the book of Luke in the New Testament.
So, before we delve into the individual letter meanings of “ACTS,” consider this: even though we aren’t apostles by definition, we should still do acts – pray, study the Word, love others and all that that entails. Our acts matter. Maybe someday, men and women of faith will read about YOUR acts and glorify the Father in heaven.
Join me tomorrow and let’s start our ACTS with prayer. God bless!
