Step 1 – Adoration
Prayers of praise for who God is and what he has done. This is often a time to meditate on the names of God, or on parts of scripture that teach us who He is. By starting with this we remember who it is we are praying to. It can help us rest in the knowledge of who God is.
Step 2 – Confession
Confessing our sin – both things done and things left undone. We can ask God to reveal what it is He wants me to either turn away from or to take up. God often leads us a step at a time. He will care for us!
Step Three – Thanksgiving
Thanking God for creating, loving, and sustaining us. Thanking God for the specific things that he is doing in your life.
Step Four – Supplication
Praying for our needs and the needs of others.
