Ever since I learned the Adoration-Confession-Thanksgiving-Supplication prayer tool many, many years ago, I’ve known it was a good idea to praise God for who He is before presenting my laundry list of needs. But to be honest, this was the most awkward aspect of prayer for me for a long time. I’d usually throw out my usual, “Lord, you are holy, you are good, you are loving,” and then move on.
Last summer, I studied God’s character and attributes with a wonderful group of ladies–I highly recommend the study, Behold Your God. It was very helpful to study God’s omniscience, omnipotence, faithfulness, sovereignty, immutability, and more . . . basically, a study of what God has told us about Himself and what it means for our lives. And one fabulous by-product of this study is that I was armed with Scripture about the Lord that I can use to praise Him for His character.
In the Adoration section of my prayer binder, I write attributes of God with Scripture listed underneath.
I’m constantly adding to this list, and the added Scripture breathes new life into this part of my prayer life. As I read God’s Word, I’m watching for new verses to add to my Adoration section. If you’re interested in starting an Adoration section in your prayer journal, here are some verses to get you started:
