Have you ever heard of using the acronym “ACTS” to memorize the basic kinds of biblical prayer?
These four types of prayer allow us to apply and develop our faith in believing and trusting God. Through Adoration we build our faith by reminding ourselves who God is. (God Almighty in whom “all things are possible!” Matt. 19:26) Through confession we build our faith in trusting His word and confessing our sins knowing that He is always faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us of all unrighteousness (1 Jn. 1:9). Through Thanksgiving we build our faith through reminding ourselves what God has done (John 11:42) And through supplication we build our faith in experiencing God’s love for us and trusting in His desire to answer “Yes and Amen” to our requests . (1 Jn. 5:14-15).
