A.C.T.S.

Adoring and worshiping God.

Confession, taking time and confessing our sins.

Thanksgiving, giving God thanks.

Supplication is where we pray for others.


Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

James 5:16ESV

  • Confession is a prerequisite for us to confess our sins.

  • Confidence is a prerequisite to know that he hears us.

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us-whatever we ask-we know that we have what we asked of him.

1 John 5:14-15NIV

  • Gail’s mom model supplication. She was a prayer warrior and sat in her prayer chair everyday.

  • Always thanking God in her tuff times because he does what he says he’s going to do.

“Prayer doesn’t have to be difficult. And I think sometimes Christians get caught up in, I don’t know how to pray an eloquent prayer, He just wants to hear from us.”
  • God gives us grace but it’s not a license to sin. There are consequences!

  • Kneeling before the Lord in prayer is a posture most do not do but it’s a powerful act.

“We live in a world where there is sin and darkness, and sometimes we just don’t know what the attacks are. I would encourage people to know what God is asking of us and to do our very best.”

For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.

Psalms 84:11NET

  • God wants a simple conversation with you

  • Step out and act on what you think you might be hearing from God. Then if it works out and it was him then how did that sound, how did that feel?

  • Be available for people when they need prayer.

  • Follow through when you say you will pray for someone.

“Knowing that when we go to him with confidence and we know that he hears us he will answer our prayers. We see it all the time.”
