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

Keep a prayer journal! Writing your prayers down will not only help you stay accountable to consistently communicate with God but will also provide you an easy way to see what God is doing in your life!

Concentric Circles

 

One helpful way of thinking about prayer is to think of concentric circles, you know the circle that’s inside of a circle, which is inside of another one and so on. If we visualize our prayer life in this way, it can help us to pray for all the people and situations in our different “circles.” For example, your smallest circle would be your home, then your community, and eventually your world. For some of you, there might be other circles you want to add in such as: your job, your church, your extended family, etc. That’s great! This is a flexible method that molds to help you pray for everyone in your life.
