Praying the ACTS Model
This year I have been really challenged about Prayer. I mean, praying has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I grew up in a family that was at our local church just about any time the doors were open, so I heard Pastors and Teachers pray often. We prayed as a family before every meal, and other times as well. I remember seeing my parents pray about things that would come up too, leading the example for us kids.
Taking Prayer for Granted
But as time has gone on, prayer is one of those things that has become so habitual that it has lost some significance to me. Not that God’s power has lost significance by any means, don’t get me wrong, but more like I have taken it for granted. I pray with my family before meals and with my son before bed. I’ll even pray when I wake up thanking God for the new day. And these are all very good habits to be in! But, God has been showing me He wants a little bit more.
