A Time for Prayer and Thanks

Thanksgiving Prayer - 7 Encouraging and Inspiring Prayers!Two Sundays ago, during Treasure Seekers we talked about different parts of prayer. Thanksgiving can offer us a great opportunity to use these key things to compose a family prayer for your celebration.

The word ACTS can help us remember some of the different parts of prayer.
A – adoration – praising God for who God is
C- confessing – telling God we are sorry for our sins
T -thanksgiving- thanking God for
S – supplication – asking God for the concerns of others and the concerns we have; asking God to help us be loving and faithful followers of Jesus.

We also talked about the importance of being quiet in prayer to listen to God and be still and open to God’s Spirit.
