The ACTS of Prayer
Here's the simple formula
As you get started in your prayer time, we'll use a simple structure called "The Acts of Prayer."
The ACTS stand for:
Or course, prayer does not have to follow a rigid formula, but I find that having a basic structure helps me keep my focus right, and my thoughts on Him, rather than on myself.
Prayer doesn’t change my circumstances nearly as much as it changes me, so I want to be “transformed by the renewing of my mind.” (Romans 12:2) This structure gets us out of “menu mode,” and places our thoughts on God first.
