Acts is a prayer format that works anywhere, anytime. It is easy to remember and helps you to stay focused on God during your prayer time. God wants an intimate relationship with you. The very first and most important commandment is to love the Lord your God. How do we love the Lord our God with all our heart if we don’t ever spend time with Him? This prayer format is a way to get you to know and love the Lord by spending good quality time with Him and allowing Him to minister to You. It’s time for us to grow up in our faith and to turn from relying solely on rote prayers and begin praying from the heart. This takes practice and determination, not because it’s hard, but because the devil does not want us to and will keep us from it if he can. The ACTS prayer is intended to do just that, help us grow by providing a helpful tool to teach us how to pray and keep us praying. Follow the steps outlined in “ACTS.” These steps will provide you with just enough to get you started, keep you on track and keep you going. Many prayer groups and churches all over the world have implemented this ACTS prayer. I am not sure how or where it started, but I am glad it did.
