Means of Growth: Prayer posted by John Sorensen on Aug 11, 2015
This week on Share Life Today we are looking at how to grow spiritually.
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. There are five means to spiritual growth – so five words – Bible, Prayer, Worship, Fellowship, Witness. Today our focus in on the second word – Prayer.
Prayer is one of the greatest privileges of having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The Bible is God speaking to us. Prayer is us speaking to God. The simple ACTS acrostic provides a usaful guideline: Adoration – praising God for who He is. Confession – admitting our sin and receiving His forgiveness. Thanksgiving – thanking God for all that He does. And supplication – bringing our needs and requests to Him in simple faith. A – C – T – S. 1Thess 5:17 tells us to pray without ceasing, which makes us aware of our dependence on the Lord at all times.
