Prayer

Have you heard of the
ACTS prayer?
 
 
Start with ADORATION
Confess your sins,
Give thanks to the Father,
and finally summit your requests
to the One who cares
 
I love using this simple pattern for prayer
It kind of puts things in perspective
 
However, this week I seem to be
praying backwards.....
 
I have so many friends and family
that desperately need prayer
 
Some are consumed with emotional hurt,
some have medical problems,
some need peace and strength, and wisdom,
 
It is my privilege to go before the Father
on their behalf and summit their requests
 
Knowing that He is a caring, loving Father
who hears our pleas and meets our needs
 
 
This Easter season I'm so very thankful
for a relationship with Jesus, my savior,
who never forsakes us, never leaves us,
but instead says,
'Come unto Me all who are weary and
heavy burdened and I will give you rest"
 
Every Little Birdie says
 
 
Hallelujah
what a Savior

  2. First, is the last thing on your post...
    Hallelujah What a Savior! ...I believe it, and I also love that song.
    Next, what a precious thing we do; when we pray the Father's will for His sheep.
    He is the Shepherd and he knows best, doesn't He?

    blessings, this Easter week. Pat
