Have you heard of the ACTS Prayer Model before? It isn’t new as it has been around for many years. I used to teach my Sunday School classes how to pray using this simple acrostic. It is so easy to learn that many adults have adopted this method as well. We like “easy”, right?
A daily visit to the throne room is every woman’s goal but, come on, let’s face it. We sometimes struggle just getting there. And when we do get there, our minds are often filled with other ‘noise’ that prevents us from praying as we should.
To help you out, try this ACTS Prayer Model that will put into perspective the elements of prayer.
ACTS Prayer Elements
There are four elements of the ACTS Prayer Model and they are
Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication.
If you look closely at The Lord’s Prayer, you will find the ACTS Prayer model within it.
Adoration – Our Father in heaven
Confess – Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
Thanksgiving – we can be thankful that our debts/sins are forgiven as we forgive those who sin against us
Supplication – give us this day our daily bread; lead us not into temptation
