Prayer

Everyday of my life I pray to my Heavenly Father. Prayer is the key to open a new day of my life. Early in the morning as I wake up I spend time praying. I pour all my cares and plans in my life to God. Then after praying I read my Bible. I read a few chapters in the Bible daily. Then I read my Daily bread booklet. Then I pray again. Prayer serves as a lock to close the day. At night before I go to sleep, I pray again to my heavenly Father and thank Him for all the things I've done the whole day. I thank Him for His many blessings and provisions. Then I ask Him to watch over me and hubby during the night and keep us safe always. I make prayer a part of my life. Hubby and I also pray before each meal. We always give Him thanks for the foods that He provided us. Prayer is powerful and when we pray God will be moved and He will answer our prayers in His perfect time. Following the A-C-T-S model in praying can help if you don't know how to start your prayer.

Adoration: “Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy Name”

Confession: “Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors”

Thanksgiving: “Thine is the Kingdom & the Power & The Glory”

Supplication: “Give us this day our daily bread, lead us not into temptation, deliver us”

Jesus commanded us to pray without ceasing. Even Jesus prayed to His heavenly Father. Let's follow His example.
