ACTS Prayer

My technology wouldn't let me reproduce our holy card completely - you are missing the picture of Jesus, among other things, but we provided cards with this little message to all of our fourth graders this week. 

Their topic is prayer.  This little ACTS pattern is one of a number of similar "tricks" that can help us "round out" our prayer.  Oh, how easy it is to complain to God like whiny children, or do nothing but ask for things!   As parents we know what it feels like to be on the receiving end of that!

Seriously, God knows our hearts.  It is to our benefit, not His that we communicate with Him more deeply and richly, and though this little trick is simple it is a step in the right direction.  Give it a try this week!
