1. Adoration: 
Begin your quiet time with a time of praise and adoration. Read a Psalm aloud to Him. Read the verses of a hymn aloud to Him. Sing a praise chorus to Him. Pray the “ABC’s” of His Name to Him. (See attached list.)
2. Confession:
Read Psalm 139:23-24 aloud to the Lord, asking Him to search your heart and mind for the reserved “right to sin.”
Follow I John 1:9 in confessing your sin to Him. (Confessing: to see something as God sees it and say something as God says it.)
“Father, I confess that I am angry, fearful, etc. I confess that your Word says that is sin. I realize that it breaks your heart when I sin. Please forgive me of this sin, and cleanse me from the power I have given this sin in my life. Strengthen me to avoid this sin in the future. In the sweet Name of Jesus I pray, Amen. If you have never trusted Christ as your Savior, this is the place to begin with the prayer of confession or the prayer of salvation. Father, I am a sinner. I cannot pay for my sin, and I want to be forgiven. I confess my sin. I believe Jesus Christ, your Son, died for my sins and is alive right now. I repent, or turn away, from my sin and I confess Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I receive Him into my life. I ask you, Lord Jesus, to control my life, and I thank you for giving me eternal life.”
3. Thanksgiving:
I Thessalonians 5:18 says what? _____________________________________________
Write down something which is evidence of God’s love in your life and for which you are grateful: _____________________________________________________________
Write down something which makes it difficult to express gratitude to God: __________
Is your difficulty an “everything” in which you are still to give thanks? ______________
Ask God for His help in the “hard thing.”
4. Supplication: 
Begin a personal prayer journal. Write down three specific prayer requests. Ask God to meet those needs.
Write down the date you have asked Him to move in these three areas. Be sure to record the date that God answers your prayer – (three possible answers: yes, no, not now)

A Way to Remember
A. Praying Hands Your thumb is nearest to you. So, begin your prayers by praying for those closest to you. They are the easiest ones to remember.
To pray for your loved ones is, as C. S. Lewis once said, “a sweet duty.”
B. The next finger is the pointing finger. Pray for those who teach, instruct, and heal. This includes teachers, doctors, and ministers. They need support and wisdom for pointing others in the right direction. Pray, especially, for those in positions of leadership and teaching in your own church. T
C. The next finger is the tallest finger. It reminds us of our leaders. Pray for the president, leaders in business and industry, and administrator. These people shape our nation and guide public opinion. They need God’s guidance.
D. The fourth finger is our ring finger. Surprising to many is the fact that this is our weakest finger; as any piano teacher will testify. It should remind us to pray for those who are weak, in trouble, or in pain. They need your prayers day and night. You cannot pray too much for them.
 
E. And lastly comes our little finger, the smallest finger of all, which is where we should place ourselves in relation to God and others. As the Bible says, “The least shall be the greatest among you.” Your pinkie should remind you to pray for yourself.
By the time you have prayed for the other four groups, your own needs will be put into proper perspective and you will be able to pray for yourself more effectively.
