DO YOU KNOW HOW TO PRAY?

There are many different scripture verses in the bible that talk about prayer. There are not so many that actually tell us how God would like us to talk to Him. I have found a few but they are not the one I was looking for. I need a Naves. Anyway, it may not be perfect but it suits the way I say my prayers. It is how I begin a conversation with my Father.
This is how I remember it and teach it to my kids.
A - adoration - praise Him for all He does
C - confession - repent for all sin and ask for forgiveness
T - thanksgiving - thank Him for all the wonderful things He's done for you, your blessings and even for the things you don't really like.
S - supplication - now is when you make your requests for others and for yourself. (this is where I find myself most of the time) Interceding on my family and friends' behalves.

You must pray with faith. You must know that God has His own schedule and ours is not important in the scheme of things. He already knows what decisions you'll make and how you will make them. He knows what you will say when you come to Him in prayer. He already knows what you will ask for before you tell Him. He Knows.
Man, I am really liking that phrase....."He Knows" I really am going to have to keep saying it to myself. HE KNOWS!!!!

9"So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Luke 11: 9-10
