Thank God!

This week on GUWG we’re focusing on prayer for the easily distracted (like me), using this handy little acronym as a guide:

ACTS

A = Adoration
C = Confession
T = Thanksgiving
S = Supplication

Today’s topic: THANKSGIVING.

Confess

This week we’re focusing on prayer for the easily distracted (like me), using this handy little acronym as a guide:

ACTS

A = Adoration
C = Confession
T = Thanksgiving
S = Supplication

Yesterday, we started with Adoration. Today, we’re looking at CONFESSION.

ACTS Now

When you pray, do you ever find yourself getting distracted?

You know, you start off with a hearty “Our Father” and maybe even a “who art in heaven” but then your mind starts to drift off to all the stuff you gotta do and then maybe some dumb 70s song that’s stuck in your head and then maybe sports and then …

Wait, where was I?

Share Prayer

PrayerHandsWe close SHARE YOUR FAITH WITHOUT FREAKING OUT WEEK here on GUWG with a little prayer:

DEAR HEAVENLY FATHER,

Help us to walk with You
every single moment
of every single day.

How TO Share Your Faith

It’s SHARE YOUR FAITH WITOUT FREAKING OUT WEEK here on GUWG.

We started off with a “To Don’t” List. We’ll conclude with a “To Do” List that attempts to summarize everything we covered:

Walk with God. Pray before you open your mouth. Fill your heart with God’s word. Let the Holy Spirit guide your every step.

Live a Life of Love

It’s SHARE YOUR FAITH WITHOUT FREAKING OUT WEEK here on GUWG.

Here’s one of my all-time favorite quotes from St. Francis of Assisi:

Proclaim the gospel at all times; when necessary, use words.

Accordingly, I’ll keep my blah blah blah to a minimum today. Instead, let’s focus on what the Bible says about this subject:

A Walk in the Park

It’s SHARE YOUR FAITH WITHOUT FREAKING OUT WEEK here on GUWG.

Here’s today’s verse:

Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. (1 Peter 3:15)

Please allow me to repeat a little story that illustrates this verse nicely. See if you can identify any of the characters.
