Colossians 4:2 (ESV)
Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.
I used to really struggle with praying, do you struggle with praying? When my mind draws a blank and I don’t know what to say or what to pray for, I think about TACOS: Let us take a look at how TACOS can help us when we pray.
Thanksgiving: What are you thankful for? Family, friends, your home, your church — the list goes on. Start by thanking God.
Adoration: God is awesome! Adoration means “worship” or “great and profound love.” Let Jesus know how much you love him.
Confession: Prayer is a lot easier when we get rid of the barriers between God and us. We all sin. In prayer, we can confess our sins and receive God’s forgiveness.
Others: So many people we know (and even those we don’t) could use our prayers. Praying means taking the focus off of ourselves and lifting up the needs of others.
Supplication: Pray for yourself and your own needs. These prayers should come last. Otherwise, we are tempted to spend all of our prayer time talking about ourselves.
If you love tacos what a great way to help you when you pray. With TACOS, prayer will seem a whole lot easier — and delicious.
Dear Lord, we thank You that we can openly talk with You through prayer. We pray that we would practice our special time with You. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
