You may not have noticed, but I am participating in the 31 Days of Challenge offered by The Nester. It is a challenge to write on a topic for 31 days...so in October, I am going to write and post on the weekends, thus extending my goal of five days a week to a month of 31 days. Oh, I forgot to tell you my topic. Since I like to nourish souls, I will continue to offer this blog as "a place to feed on words" for the next 31 days.
Today's Word is PRAY.
Pray means "to address God...with adoration, confession, supplication, or thanksgiving"
It also means to entreat or implore, to make a request in a humble manner. (www.m-w.com)
I like the four-fold approach to prayer sometimes called ACTS of prayer.
Adoration: Praising God for Who He Is
Confession: Admitting my faults and need for a Savior
Thanksgiving: Giving God the credit for all the Graces in my life
Supplication: Making humble requests of a Loving Father in Heaven
I like acrostic poems, so I wrote four "pray" acrostics covering these aspects of prayer. I will list them in the order of ACTS.
