Life’s Instructions-S.O.A.P. & A.C.T.S.


Life’s Instructions


A couple of months ago for Life’s Instructions, I taught you how to do S.O.A.P. For Life’s Instructions this month I am going to show you a way to pray called A.C.T.S but don’t worry, I’ll give you some verses to choose from so you can do S.O.A.P also.

A.C.T.S. Stands for Adoration (praise), Confession, Thanksgiving and Supplication (prayer requests). Please read below to learn more about how to do A.C.T.S.

This month, we are focusing on meekness so here are some verse options for you to choose for doing S.O.A.P.:

  • Philippians 2:3 (This one is my favorite)

  • Matthew 11:29

  • Psalm 149:4

  • Isaiah 29:19

Now back to A.C.T.S. I really like this way of praying because to me, it is different each time you do it. Also, I think of it as putting God and others before yourself which is Th!nk’s mission as you know.

A stands for Adoration. Adoration means praise, so start off your prayer by praising God for who he is and what he has done.

C stands for Confession so confess your sins. Has God put something on your heart that you need to confess and ask to overcome? He doesn’t want anything to keep us from our relationship with him.

T stands for Thanksgiving so give thanks to God for all the things He has provided you with.

Last, end off your prayer with S which stands for Supplication. Supplication means prayer requests so at this time, present your requests to God(Philippians 4:6).
