Prayer Plan // June 2021

Prayer Plan //
june 2021

Spotlight

We desire to regularly come together and lift up specific requests to God.

  • Volunteer needs to be met in our ministries
  • School staff as they finish their year
  • For those who are hungry to have their needs met
  • For more families to foster children in need
  • Medical professionals that have served through the pandemic
  • Unity among all people in our nation
  • Peaceful resolutions to the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine

ACTS Method

Many believers have found the A.C.T.S. method for prayer helpful. This acronym is based on Jesus’ prayer in Matthew 6:9-13 and contains 4 pieces that are essential to prayer: Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication.

5

Adoration

Praise God for who He is & what He has done.

5

Confession

Be honest before God about the sin in your life. Acknowledge the ways that you have sinned against God and others with your thoughts, words, and actions. 

5

Thanksgiving

Thank God for what He has done in your life and in the lives of others.

5

Supplication

Ask God for specific requests and trust that He will answer your requests according to His will, not our own. 

Pro tip

Schedule time to pray each day—it’s easier to follow through if you have intentionally set aside time to spend with God.
