Prayer Prompter is like a two drawer file cabinet. The top drawer stores and organizes Scripture passages in folders by topic. Each of the top drawer folders contain Scripture passages. Prayer Prompter comes with 600+ Bible passages installed and more can be added. You can also change the existing ones such as from one Bible version to another and even delete the ones you don’t like. The bottom drawer stores and organizes prayer requests and answers to prayer in folders.
Prayer Prompter has been designed to enrich your prayer time by providing an easy way to read and reflect on key passages of Scripture and return to them on a regular basis. The first few folders in the top drawer are organized according to the popular ACTS method of prayer. The letters, A-C-T-S, stand for Adoration or Worship and Praise, Confession which includes Repentance and Forgiveness, Thanksgiving or the expression of Gratitude to God, and Supplication which means Petition, Intercession or Requests.
These four things are important elements of a balanced prayer life and the order of the letters is intentional. We ought to begin prayer with worship of God just as Jesus did when He taught the disciples how to pray and, even though God encourages us to bring our needs and wants to Him, we should first acknowledge Him for who He is (Adoration) and what He has done (Thanksgiving) and who we are and what we have done (Confession) before we get to the “needs and wants” part. It worth noting that those things are in the second half of reserved for the second half of the Lord’s Prayer.
Staying focused! When I try to pray, my mind is “prone to wander”. Prayer Prompter helps me be faithful in prayer while keeping the focus on God and His Word rather than myself.
As a believer in Jesus Christ, I also want to be reminded every day of the ongoing necessity of faith and obedience so I added two letters to the acrostic ACTS so that it becomes ACTS-TS. The T stands for “Trust” (i.e. Faith) and the S stands for “Submission” (i.e. Obedience).
Note: You don’t have to follow the ACTS-TS method of prayer. Prayer Prompter is very flexible and you can configure it any way you want. You can add your own folders and edit or delete the existing ones. You can also add your own content to the folders and edit or delete the existing content.
