A- Adore – Spend time praising God for who He is. This is a time of worship, an opportunity for you to meditate on and praise Him because of His character and specifically the new attributes you are learning about God. It’s helpful here to base your prayers of adoration on specific scripture. For example, if we were studying God as our provider we may pray back Matthew 6:33 and say, “God, I praise you that you promise to provide us all things…that when we seek first your kingdom and your righteous, you will give us all these things and even more.”
 
C – Confess – this is when we confess our sins to God because “If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). We ask God to show us our sin and then we agree with Him on the areas we have fallen short. We may confess specific ways we have not fully believed God to be all He claims to be in His Word- sovereign, wise, love, justice, etc. For example, “Forgive me, Lord, for not believing you are my Provider – able and willing to provide for me in every detail of my life….to provide the finances, the protection, the job opportunities, the relationships, etc.”
 
T – Thanks – this is a chance to thank God for what He has done in your life. Note the difference between adoration (praising God for who He is) and thanksgiving (praising God for what He’s done). Thank Him for anything and everything….but especially for the specific ways He has revealed the character trait you are studying in your life. Foe example, as you study God as your provider, you might thank Him for providing a financial raise, a surprise note of encouragement, or the answer to a prayer.
 
S – Supplication – this is where you bring specific request and needs for yourself and others to God. It’s important to note that in general, it’s most appropriate to make our request known to God after we’ve spent time praising Him for who He is, confessing on sin and need for Him , and giving thanks. At this point, we have a more accurate view of God and ourselves; our hearts are more full aligned with His will and we can pray, trusting the Holy Spirit to bring to mind specific needs in accordance with His desires.
