The “A” of ACTS stands or adoration. Adoration simply means to brag on God. We should start prayer by praising God for how awesome he is. When you pray, start by remembering what you love about God and “adoring” him for those things. Examples would be praising him for his perfection, his enormous power, his ability to forgive us, his control of all the earth and the skies, his desire to love us completely, his gift of Jesus, ect… The list goes on and on! You can praise God for anything. Praising God-adoration-helps us take the focus off ourselves and direct our attention to God. We will continue this quest on the ACTS of prayer next time.
