A.C.T.S.

It is our prayer at HEART, that you live your life abundantly.  For JESUS came that we have life – life more abundantly.  In the NAME of JESUS, know that no matter what you are facing that “…All things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”  (Ro. 8:28)  Therefore we have this confidence that OUR HEAVENLY FATHER is working our situation for the good, and our life is lived according to GOD’s holy and perfect purpose.   Nothing is too hard for GOD OUR FATHER.  Nothing shall separate us from the love of GOD, which is in CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD. (Ro. 8:35-39)   All we have to do is call upon GOD in the midst of our distress, and HE will answer us and show us great and mighty things which we know not. (Jer. 33:1-3)


 


Adoration & Acknowledgement

Our Father, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  Abba, God of Deacon Charlie Miller, Pastor A.G. Preuitt, Bishop Albert Moore, and Pastor Avance Harden.  Our Heavenly Father who has been our dwelling place from generation to generation - thou alone art God.  We come to you, Father God in the mighty, matchless, majestic and marvelous name of Jesus Christ.  We come to you acknowledging that we all have sinned and come short of your glory, for you alone are worthy of all of the glory, honor, and praise.  We come acknowledging that you are God and that you are God alone.  We worship you because you are most worshipful, and we praise you for all that you have and have not done.


Confession


We stretch our hands unto you, Father for no other help we know.  If thou wilt withdraw thyself from us, whither shalt we go.  We confess that we have sinned against you and you alone.  We pray for strength to be crucified to this world, that we no longer be fascinated or compromised by it.  Heavenly Father, give us the conviction to come out from among unbelievers with whom we are unequally yoked.  We rebuke fellowship ties with unrighteousness.  We no longer seek communion of light with darkness.  As Christians, we confess that we must break our soul ties with all things of Belial.  As the temples of the living God, we find disagreement with idols and secrets cloaked in darkness.  We ask that you cleanse us your temples, that you may abide within us.  We come out from among and separate ourselves from filthiness, that we be not conformed to this world.  Be our Father-God, receive us as your sons and daughters. (2 Cor. 6:14-18)   We confess our sins unto you knowing that you are faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  (I John 1:9)


Thanksgiving

We thank you for neither dealing with us according to our transgressions nor rewarding our iniquity.  We thank you for access and salvation through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  We thank you for grace, mercy, joy and peace.  We thank you for guidance and hope.  We thank you for restoration and renewed strength, that we may stand strong in witness of your ever-loving mercies.  We thank you for our families, friends and "confused friends" (foes) alike as we commend them into your care.  We thank you, and we praise you in that we can call you Master as well as faithful Father and friend.
