On wings of prayer Praying the ACTS way (On Wings of Prayer)

Bible prayers create a model of what prayer can be: exciting, fulfilling and powerful. Using the acrostic ACTS makes prayer memorable, interesting, and focused. Learn to pray following this simple outline utilized by men and women who experience the transforming power of prayer.

Reggie Weems

Reggie Weems was born in Granite City, Illinois, USA. Converted at seventeen, he worked as an Egyptian linguist for the US government before serving as Senior Pastor of two churches for thirty years. Reggie both rejoices in and struggles with the discipline of prayer. It is for that reason that he emphasizes it, practices it and encourages others to join him in the wonder of communion with God. He is married to Teana, his childhood sweetheart.

Reggie Weems has written a book utilizing the ACTS (Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, Supplication) model. I don’t know if there is any other book that treats the subject of prayer the way Reggie has treated it. I have known Reggie for over twenty years and have seen how God has worked through the church that he has grown over a period of time. Obviously, he believes in prayer, and God has worked through him to build Heritage Baptist Church into a powerful congregation.

Biblically and theologically sound, practical, inspiring and relevant! A fresh and timely invitation to live a focused and abundant Christian life of prayer in the midst of a culture of meaninglessness and emptiness. Dr. Weems writes on prayer with the authority of a Bible student, pastor, missionary, husband and father. I knew Dr. Weems during his missionary work behind the Iron Curtain, where prayer was not one item on a Sunday bulletin but a way of life rooted in the divine revelation of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as recorded in the fully inspired and inerrant Holy Scriptures.

Over the years I have used the acronym ACTS (Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, Supplication) thousands of times, but I had never read a detailed exposition of its value until I came across this book. I missed a great deal! Most Christians must occasionally feel that their time of prayer is little more than a shopping list—and that they leave the check-out with nothing in the basket. Help is at hand! Simple, scriptural and practical, this little book will set countless Christians on their way to praying more wisely, more enthusiastically and more effectively. I warmly commend it.

This brief work on prayer will encourage you to pray, teach you to pray, and give you precious gems about prayer along the way. It taught me things I did not know, and reminded me of things I had forgotten.
Paul David Washer, HeartCry Missionary Society
Because of the unique nature of the Christian discipline of prayer, most books on prayer are more inspiring than they are helpful. Pastor Reggie Weems has achieved what only a few have ever done in Christian history. This book is orthodox, penetrating, motivating and inspiring, all in one slender, readable volume. If you are hoping to enhance your walk with the Master, here is one book that will bless your soul.
