A.C.T.S. Elements of Prayer
“Praise be to God!” -Psalms 68:35
An important element of prayer is adoration, or praise. Praise God for His power, majesty, glory, and character. Express your love and worship of God.
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just, and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” -1 John 1:9
When we pray we can include confession of our sin. God invites us tell Him about the things we have done wrong and to ask for forgiveness. It helps to be specific.
“Glorify him with thanksgiving” -Psalms 69:30
Also when we pray, we can give thanks to God. Thank God for His love, His faithfulness, His patience and a million other things. Express gratitude for what He’s doing in your life.
“Make your requests known to God.” -Philippians 4:6
Prayer can often include supplication, which is bringing our requests to God. Pray for the needs in your own life, the needs of your family, your church, for missions, and for the needs of the world.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:6-7
