Praying With Jesus: A.C.T.S.
For the last three days, we have done the prayer acrostic A.C.T.S. A is for adoration, C is for confession, T is for thanksgiving, and finally today S which stands for supplication. This may be the one where you do not know supplication means, but we can easily do this in prayer. Supplication is asking God for help. It may be for things like daily bread or it may be for people and healing like Uncle Joe who is going through chemotherapy. God wants us to bring all of our issues to Him in prayer. God cares and he understands what it is that we go through in Jesus. In fact, I love how all 3 times Jesus encountered a funeral in the Gospels, what did he do? He ended it with person rising from death. Keep praying and asking and know that God wants to bless you in ways that you have not even imagined.
Lord Jesus, You understand our struggles because You became one of us. Remind us to pray in all situations and to share with You the burdens we bear. With You, our burdens are lightened and our wounds are healed. Thank You. Amen.
