Continuing with the “8 Things Jesus Never Said” by Jarrid Wilson, we come to his 4th item. “I will bless you if you pray hard enough.” This is similar to what I was saying last week about plans. Prayer is a way to communicate with God. You can talk with Him directly. Prayer is an opportunity to be in a closer relationship with your maker. It should never become only a shopping list of things we want. To pray, think A.C.T.S. (Not to be confused with the Brethren ministerial training program of the same name.) Adoration – “Praise be to God!” -Psalms 68:35, Confession – “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just, and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” -1 John 1:9, Thanksgiving – Always “glorify him with thanksgiving” -Psalms 69:30, Supplication – “Make your requests known to God.” -Philippians 4:6. Use these four steps to formulate a prayer session as you talk to God. Tell God how much you appreciate Him. Tell Him where you have fallen short. Be specific. Express gratitude for what He’s doing in your life. Tell God what you want, no matter how small it seems to you. But, as I said last week, remember that you’ve prayed to God that “Thy will be done.” And that will always be the primary answer to your prayer. Pastor Jesse
