Daily Prayer Concerns and Scripture Readings
The ACTS of Prayer
“ACTS” refers to the precepts of prayer—the categories of Adoration: Confession; Thanksgiving; and Supplication.
Adoration means to worship and acknowledge the majesty of God—Praise be to God! Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.
Confession, Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. This means we are to see our sins and agree with God about the things that we have done wrong.
Thanksgiving, For Thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory forever. In our prayer life we are to be grateful for what he has done for us.
Supplication, Gives us today our daily bread…Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil is a fervent, personal petition, letting God know of our needs. This is called a petition, our earnest, humble request before God.
