ACTS Prayer Method

If you have trouble knowing what to pray, or how to pray, may I suggest the ACTS method? ACTS stands for Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving and Supplication.

Adoration. Start your prayer by worshiping God. Praise Him for who He is. Recognize Him as holy, almighty, gracious...

Confession. Admit sins you've committed since the last time you prayed. Ask God for forgiveness. Also confess sins of omission -- opportunities for good that you neglected.

Thanksgiving. Thank God for previous answers to prayers and for His continuing goodness.

Supplication. Plead with God both for others and for yourself.
