The third part of the ACTS prayer outline is Thanksgiving.  God’s blessings are so abundant.  He gives us so much that sometimes we take things for granted like the air we breathe.  Thank Him for His patience with us, His faithfulness and goodness.  Thank Him for the people He has brought into your life.  Thank Him for family and friends.  Most of all thank Him for the free gift of Salvation through Jesus Christ.  And the list goes on and on…
