Goal: Creating Balance In Our Prayers
Fellas, thanks for sticking with me today is day six.
Today we are going to combine all of what we have learned so far. This means we are going to take:
- Praying out loud
- Praying for 5-minutes
- Praying art your scheduled time
- Asking God
- Confessing to God
- Thanking God
And we are going to wrap them all into one 5-minute experience. The reason I want you to do this is that our focus on prayer today is learning to balance our conversations with God.
I have had many moments where I get into prayer and wonder what to pray next. Or feel maybe that I have spent too much time only asking God for things and not communicating anything else. So today, we are going to focus on balance in your prayer time with this memorable acronym A.C.T., which stands for Ask, Confess, and Thanks. We spent the last three days practicing these, but today we are going to combine them. I want you to spend about a minute asking, a minute confessing, and a minute thanking God. If it helps, grab a sticky note, or scratch paper, or journal and write down you some bullet points first, and then pray. Again, you may want to do this for more than 5-minutes, but the focus needs to be recalling the acronym and balancing your conversation with a little of the three components during the time. I don't care about length today; it's more about the balance of the conversation.

Praying out loud has changed my relationship with God!
I found that what I ask God for (which is for God to take away some besetting sins) which turned into confessing those sins and then thanking Him for helping me with them. They just rolled together in perfect unity.
God I am still trying to ask someone to forgive me for hold a grudge
Thank you for the structure praying, still doesn’t feel natural yet.

Writing down my own prayer points actually helped mold them with verbiage used by my church. Planning prayer is interesting…
I like the write-up, the point in which the site is actually a tiny little bit unique tends to make it so useful, I actually get fed up of viewing the exact outdated monotonous recycled stuff just about all of the time.
Brilliant post this match. I was checking constantly this vortal and Im ecciting! Extremely useful info specifically the last post 🙂 I was looking for this particular info for a long time. Thank you and good luck…

I positively like this record, i did not appreciate a kismet of the things that you posted in here. i ahve much more new news regarding these topics and topics related to it. some people may find it implacable to understadn the english language but i find it rather calm an eye to the confidentiality that has discover to be what is todays policy.
Praying out loud is do helpful, but remains challenging when no one is around. However, I see it’s benefit !
Praying takes more than just 5 minutes, as I learned this at our 24 hour prayer event at church. So much to pray for everyday, but we rush it just to get it done, and its wrong to do that.
Oops! Missed my scheduled time, wife had to remind me. Putting together pact felt a little forced, but it is certainly good to balance my time with God.
The problem with this is that 5 minutes is not enough time! The process of praying out loud is making a huge difference in my prayer life. Thanks Vince!

Love it 👊🏼
I love this model of balance. I find myself so many times just asking instead of thanking and giving praise.
I actually reverse my prayer and begin by giving Thanks, Confessing and then Asking. This flows well for me.
A balanced prayer brings more peace
Before praying I wrote down each category; Asking, Confessing and Thanking. I wrote down what I normally pray under each category. I realized I combine categories as I pray. For example, thanking God for my health and my family’s health and asking that He would continue to keep us healthy. This is also true when confessing. The second half of confessing is asking for His strength to do better and overcome.

What I wouldnt give to have a debate with you about this. You just say so many things that arrive from nowhere that Im fairly sure Id have a fair shot. Your weblog is terrific visually, I mean people wont be bored. But others who can see past the videos and the layout wont be so impressed with your generic understanding of this topic.
This is some good quality stuff. It took me some time to locate this site but it was worth the time. I noticed this post was buried in bing and not the first spot. This website has a ton of decent stuff and it does not deserve to be burried in the search engines like that. By the way I am going to add this web site to my list of favorites.
I think I struggle with the asking part. Are the things I ask for the same tings God wants for me.?

Simple, but to the point.
I learned that when there is a structure to prayer it helps me organize my thoughts much better rather than jumping around in my head trying to remember what I would like to bring to God.
It feels more comversatial.
I learned pursuing out load Kross me more focused and I don’t feel like I ramble

Consistency in prayer is so huge. Just as repetition breeds familiarity, strength, and habit so too does it in our spiritual disciplines.
We do not have because we do not ask. I want to ask God for more things in line with His will.
what is crude cbd
I really enjoyed this today.
I learned that prayer is much easier than I originally thought. I don’t have to use eloquent language to talk to God like I’ve heard when Pastors pray. I’ve always had a hard time coming up with what to pray, and because of that, I prayed only when I knew what to say. And that was rare. Making myself pray out loud helps me form complete thoughts, and after 6 days, I don’t sound weird and random while I pray. Its amazing what a little change can do.
Thankyou for all your efforts which you have put in this. worth it to read info .
I have been setting a timer while praying out loud. The first reason is to ensure I finish the planned time. I have learned I’m usually easily going over the time set & how easy it is to pray/converse with God. Today I learned to be more intentional & direct by having a timer. I don’t have to only pray once a day but can do it all day, every day. Making God part of my everything, all day long. What a blessing that is.

God is good!
Like a balanced diet, balanced prayer is good for the soul
Very similar to what I learned after Promise Keepers.
Supplication (others then self)
And in that order
Putting everything thing together was an emotional, moving experience for me this morning.
With this model, I find myself outlining my thoughts first and then stepping into prayer.
Sounds well thought out.
A portion of gate crashers even suspect that was introduced by the British.
This has definitely helped me gain a focus for praying. Before this I would possibly “ask” or “thank” but not with focus.
Amazing work here brother 👊🏼👊🏼
I tend to do these 4 things in no particular order, depending upon where my heart and mind are at in the moments of prayer.
I have been praying using a balanced method for over 40 years, since my days at the U.S. Air Force Academy. My roommate was involved in the Navigators ministry and he taught me the ACTS method of praying, which is very similar to the PACT method. ACTS method is to pray in these four areas: (1) Start out with Adoration to God; (2) then go to Confession; (3) then go to Thanksgiving; and finally (4) go to Supplication (asking). So I have followed this method for almost my entire Christian life. It works well. The variation with PACT is praying out loud, which I am doing, but don’t like very well.
The Lord gave me a single Priority #1 goal to complete today.
Progress on that task was less than I expected.
Interruptions during the work were necessary.
After my 5 minutes reviewing the day’s activities
I felt peace that the day was a success in God’s eyes.
I agree with that when I pray I tend to focus on one area and over time my prayer life tends to skew in that direction over that period. Creating balance in my relationship with God makes sense.
I learned more something totally new on this weight reduction issue. A single issue is a good nutrition is highly vital when dieting. A huge reduction in bad foods, sugary foods, fried foods, sugary foods, red meat, and white-colored flour products could possibly be necessary. Holding wastes organisms, and wastes may prevent targets for losing belly fat. While particular drugs for the short term solve the problem, the awful side effects usually are not worth it, and in addition they never offer more than a temporary solution. It is just a known idea that 95 of fad diet plans fail. Many thanks sharing your notions on this site.
I really love the way praying out loud and having a structured prayer keeps me focused.
I learned how much prayer can calm me down.
Yes, It does have a calming nature!
Love the balance here that you are teaching us to follow in our prayer life. I find that my prayers are longer and much more richer.
You should take part in a contest for probably the greatest blogs on the web. I will advocate this site!
Today I have learned or at least relearned That being specific in prayer and out loud puts me under greater conviction. I tend to gloss over sin whether intentional or inadvertent but when I profess them out loud with greater concentration it increases my resolve to improve.
I’ve learned that I always end up having a lot more to talk about with God than I originally thought…
Good work today, nice catching up!
I find that it is hard to keep the four PACT segments separated. I tend to jump around, especially the Asking and the Thanking.
That’s totally fine, Jerry. We are using this rhythm to build a healthy balance is all—so that we are not only asking for things all the time, which is the usual default. ⚡️⚡️
Found it difficult to organize my praying into the acronym. Kept slipping back into asking mode. Maybe I’m just tired today and finding it hard to focus.
Stay with it ⚡️
Nice acronym to help.
Sometimes simple Acronyms help! ⚡️⚡️⚡️
I’ve always done these things while I prayed but never in any particular order. I love being organized in everything I do and this helps me to be organized in my prayers and focus on each category of my relationship with God.
Praying out loud has helped me concentrate get things off my mind before my work day begins and exspess my Thanksgiving and have true confession to God.
Jeff, wonderful 🥇🥇🥇
God’s promise give me the strength I need to carry on .
If there is balance in your prayer time it Can lead to balance in your life.
I learned that I have not had a balanced prayer life. I have only focused on praying for what I want and not always praying for what I’m thankful for or confessing to God. This is very helpful!
While I like this method…and using any type of acrostic to help you remember is an incredibly useful tool…I tend to start with Thanksgiving, then Confess and then finally Asking. But I certainly think the PACT model is important in that it helps you to remember all three parts – and of course to pray out loud.
I agree with Steve on balance. It’s good to involved ourselves in all these areas of prayer.
I was reminded: it seems as if when I am pouring out my heart to Him, He is often revealing insight into who He is, what He is doing and wanting through my words to Him! Even in my speaking to Him, He is simultaneously speaking to me!
Time goes faster and I feel closer to God
The balance is important. I didn’t realize I tend to be heavy on asking, a tad less on thanking, and my confession time has been minimal . Thanks Vince.
I experienced peace in my spirit, focusing on the different aspects of my communication with God. This has been a difficult week with unfilled expectations. Praying to God has given me a sense of purpose in finding the blessings even in negative circumstances.
I am praying for you today! Stay in the fight.
Writing things down and praying out loud has helped me stay focused. I almost feel more effective.
It is a great way to keep your focus and making sure you don’t just jump around in prayer
This first time using PACT I felt a little rushed. Since this is my first time trying this method I trust I will become more comfortable.
Very useful acronym – helps to keep me focused in prayer!
How are you guys doing in this CTA study? I trust new habits are being formed!
The guideline today (P.A.C.T.) touches the main things to focus on when approaching the throne of God. Thanks Vince!
Every day we need to show our adoration for God, confess our sins to Him and ask forgiveness, give thanks for His will being done (good and bad) and ask for what we need because we all need help. Doing this daily for a month will make it a habit and not a chore. A month leads to another month and a year to a year. Build a new habit…
My prayers seem to have a more direct, deliberate and powerful tone now. This prayer practice really helps me to stay focused on the specifics of my prayers and the confession keeps me humble and allows God’s grace to flow in my life. Not to repeat addictive sin but empower me to overcome it.
By using the P.A.C.T. method it helped me to stay focused while praying and have a guideline to what to pray for. I was really able to talk to God in a way I previously was not able to, in that it gave me more confidence in what I was praying for.
I learned that in order to make a
P A C T you have to ACT ! I pour out and he pours in .
It brings Peace of Mind and Heart.
This helps me to focus on praying in more than one area in my life and also being able to stay focus as I pray for others.
I have learned so much from doing the 35 day challenge and I have watched and seen my prayer life grow and become stronger. My relationship with the lord continues to grow and my relationship with my friends , family and girlfriend also continue to grow and heal and flourish in being honest and pure ! God is so good to those who are faithful to him!
When I pray out loud, I feel more of a connection to God. After the 5 minutes, (8 for me) I feel a lifting of my spirit, ready for the day and whatever Satan throws at me.
Vince, just a thought.
As I pray – I always start with Praising God before I ask anything.
I like your idea on P.A.C.T. Easy to remember…
So Instead of using P as Pray Out Loud (Which I am doing) –
I will remember PACT as Praise Ask Confess Thanksgiving.
You are awesome brother. Thank you for this devotional.
Blessings to All.
I said a timer this time and I actually prayed for 11 minutes out loud. I think it does bring more clarity and it feels more real by actually praying out loud. I did go through ACT but then as I continue to pray I jumped around again with doing some more asking and some more confessing.
I like the P. A. C. T. method. I like having the structure… It keeps me on track a bit more.
So, this was an adjustment to be frank. Having the structure in mind as I prayed was helpful to keep me in track. It’ll take some getting used to… not really a spiritual comment but a personal note.
Being specific and writing down my thoughts are extremely helpful. I haven’t started, but I see that journaling is something I need to get into a habit of doing!
P.A.C.T., this is now in my memory, will work with this daily, thanks
Your used to praying a certain way. Always eyes closed, uninterrupted, always solem and spiritual, and always has to be for a long time.
I like this PACT… making a list, and referring back to it. There’s an organized intentionality to it that keeps praying flowing. All of a sudden 5 min becomes 20 and 20 becomes an hour.
I agree, I can’t believe he’s only asking for 5 minutes, but then runs on for some time. Loving this
I really enjoyed the flow of this methodical prayer method. It’s helpful for me to have the structure.
I learned to pray for what’s uncomfortable or very hard to say out loud in the open and the relief when you do say it.
When I pray, usually I thank God and ask forgiveness, followed by asking, so the PACT order was different for me today.
Sometimes the thing I leave out, especially when praying as a family, is confession of sins. I’m not sure why because that is how I should model prayer for my children. Thanks Vince for the challenge and the reminder!
Simply because of faith and hope, some negative critical situations will come to pass as I become more humble and do what’s in his power while I do my best I’m personally thankful for his righousness.
Take more time to pray
I enjoy spending time talking to the Lord. I have been led to worship Him in prayer. I think of all He has done for us.
I test drove thru a cemetery this morning, it is the most real place on the earth. It is a universal place that EVERYONE will have the chance to experience. I thank God for choosing me, and all those who place their trust in Jesus, for eternal security
My prayer life is free flowing so it’s nice at times to have an acronym that helps direct my conversation. What I do see that lacks the most is confession.
I am praying to God in a more personal way.
I’m used to the A.C.T.S mode of prayer.But one of my prayer requests was asking God to open my mind for me to learn something new.Am glad I have found the P.A.C.T method.I am ready to share it with my friends.As I prayed I just felt a total sense of submission as usual.What made me feel moved in the Intercession part in asking.So powerful to pray for others
This was difficult but good. I try to include all these things but not always in that order. It made me think and concentrate more
Balance, something I am having trouble finding in other parts of my life. I feels good to have a structure and a balance with my prayer life. The acronym really worked for me.
Balance in my prayer life.
Giving me the strength to pray out loud ,and to give thanks the lord came I to my life and as well for my wife.
Gets you in the mindset to walk through your prayer covering multiple things rather than hung up on one thing
PACT very similar to ACTS which is what I have used in the past. This acronym is patterned after the Lord’s Prayer. Adoration and Praise, Confess, Thanksgiving and Supplication or better known as asking.
Still a struggle for me to pray out load.
I like the balance, sometimes I find myself spending my whole prayer time asking
Much easier to ask God for things …to to confess to God my faults.
To be praise the more Lord ,and to be more thankful for his grace,love and guidance.
I am flawed, but that does not define me in God’s eyes. Jesus’ righteousness defines me in God’s eyes, I need to start living in that truth more earnestly and stop listening to and living in the lies and whispers of the devil.
I have recently started a web site, the information you provide on this site has helped me greatly. Thank you for all of your time & work.
I often pray out loud when walking my dog, but I’ve realized that I need to slow down a little. I’m talking and sometimes feel in an exercise (fast walk) mode and really not just resting my spirit and taking with God. But when I slow down, I feel like I’m actually walking and taking with God.
I earned it’s harder to come up with something to confess about.
This is a big help. It keeps you focus on God and keeps you mind on letting God be in control of your life. If you ask in Jesus name and have faith that it will be done it will be done in God’s time. Thank you Vince for the help.
The PACT acronym makes it easier to guide my prayer because it’s hard to pray for five minutes.
This is great it slowly reaches you the proper way to pray and how to put this into your daily life
Pray out loud.. P.A.C.T. – Asking for blessings on our group, confessing my short comings and being thankful in all circumstances..
Be blessed brothers
Got paper book
By not letting myself just focus on one area of PACT. But doing all, I feel closer to God.
Helpful tool. Thanks.
I have used the ACTS acronym. The additional S stands for supplication. And the A stands for Adoration which is similar to Thanksgiving I guess.
I really liked praying out loud. It helps me to stay focused.
Talking to God out loud is great. And balancing confessions and thanksgiving along with petitions makes prayer more meaningful. I’m looking forward to it every day!
I like thanking first because it sets the tone for the conversation
I like the formula and the concept of balancing our conversation with God. It helps a spaz like me.
I like the idea about hitting all the different points but I find it hard for myself to focuse on each one at a time.
Praying this way really helped me stay focused as well as limit repetition in my prayers as well. A lot of time when I pray I focus on one area or another and either forget to pray about the rest. This helped a lot
It focuses me and helps reminds me of my past actions and blessings.
Bringing Balance helps me to not focus too long in a category and be more thorough with God. Gratitude also helps me by shifting my attitude especially when it is negative.
I learned that the prayer time is more focused instead of scattered
I really struggled with moving through all 3 areas, but I enjoyed the challenge. The order felt a bit strange—I thought it might work best to put either thankfulness or confession first, and ask last, but realized that I might just be trying to earn the right to ask by my praise or contrition. I’ll try this order for a few more days and see how it works. It definitely feels like “going boldly before the throne of grace.”
I scrolled thru today to see how everyone is doing. And I have to say Les & Ted you are so right who am I to come before God and ask for anything before I make myself right with Him
Thank you guys
Feeling empowered. God listens and answers our Prayers in his timing not ours.
PACT feels natural and it really does seem to create balance in my prayers. I like that it takes different aspects of how we lean into God for what we need, thankful for or need to repent from.
Thank you for sharing.
I do have to confess I do not get to this until I am going to bed. I got to read all the comments and I love the insights. Thank you again.
I did take the PACT as a reminder of the pieces not the order. I agree with Les. I don’t feel right until I confess and get right with my God at least in my mind.
Thank you again for your ideas
There is a benefit to structure in your prayer time.
Give thanks to God in all things/situations because He is with His followers in all things and situations. PACT is an effective approach for feeling being in His presence as in “father – child.”
I’ve found that by scheduling and committing to this habit of prayer that, like other positive, constructive habits, I find my self anticipating it, and energized during and by it. Imagine that. Perhaps because it’s something I was created for.
Revisiting the ACT prayer reminds me that in all relationships that balance works best. In communicating with my wife if I’m only asking her for something or constantly telling her I’m sorry or praising her that would not work well in the long run. Ditto my relationship with God. Good discipline this morning.
PACT helped me stay balanced and focused in my prayer. I found myself wondering around in my thoughts as I prayed, and then I thought Ask; Confess; Thank.
This praying out loud is new to me (except when you are at the end of your rope. This morning I had 2 hours of windshield time to pray out loud in the truck. I find it easier to pray out loud in the car by yourself than at home with a house full of family. 5 minutes is a really long time to talk out loud too. I like the structure we are forming with PACT
Balance is best. Thanks for the reminder. And i agree with others here that praying out loud definitely helps keep me focused.
I really love this structure to a tried-and-true method. really enjoy the praying out loud part as it really does stop the squirrels and gets my prayers so much more focused.
Open eyes of the soul reveals much.
Running a day behind again. I tend to fall in the trap of monopolizing my prayer time focusing on either asking or thanking. Trying to stay “balanced” was not easy but I understand the importance.
there is great comfort in knowing that God already knows my needs before I even ask and is working out all things for my good.
I like the idea of balance in prayer and PACT will help.
I like the balance idea. Yesterday when thanking I actually found myself confessing. This is a great way to go about things. I am really liking this series!
I found that using this method and praying out loud. I was more thorough and felt more connected with myself. I was able to somehow stay more focused with my prayer.
I like using these methods, either ACTS or this one that is a bit new to me in PACT. They help give some direction to my prayers that can wander. I kind of like the idea of putting a minimum time on confession or whichever thing I am struggling to pray about that day. I spent more time on it and really thought about it which is good.
Prayed in the car today and recalled that I am very distracted. Praying out loud is helpful. Have to focus more on confession.
I did the ACTS acronym in the past. I thought it was helpful because sometimes I just get caught up in asking for stuff for me.
This has been a great reminder for me on the importance of setting a solid foundation. The thing I’m reminded of most today is “staying connected to the vine”, without it we whither.
Today’s activities are a bit confusing to me, as I believe that confession should come first, with praise and thanksgiving next, and only then are we in a position to ask for anything. I followed the PACT order today, but that is not how I will pray on a regular basis.
I like the balance idea I find I spend a lot of time thanking God for all He has done and offered but not so quick to confess or even ask things of Him. Great eye opener
Going in with a “pre-prayer’ list is helpful, something I learned from the prayer group at church. I think it’s good to go in prepared, and the “P.A.C.T” acronym helps further with the structure focus (I often drift a bit into digressions in all my conversations). I do have a concern that this could have the negative impact of making this conversation more rote and ritualistic, but it helps to have a template.
I will keep using the ‘P.A.C.T’ method. My prayer feel a lot more structured, because sometimes in prayer it feels like dryness sets in when I am searching for something to say.
I appreciate how this method keeps me focused in my prayer. I also know I don’t spend nearly enough time thanking God, so this method ensures I spend adequate time on thanking him.
P.A.C.T., Can’t be limited to a 5 minute window.
Praying out loud relieves one of parameters and boundaries.
Time constraints are broken. Topics are boundless.
A lasting closeness overtakes that of silent prayer.
The goal of Intimacy with the Creator is nearer.
Writing everything down is good preparation for keeping prayer on track. It helps me stay focused and keeps me from rambling on aimlessly.
I like the sound of PACT as it reminds me that we have a covenant God. I like Vince’s previous observation that Jesus knew we had a problem in asking God for what we need. It relieves me of any guilt from the act of asking and creates a healthy dependence on his strength and not mine.
I learned that time flies when you’re praying and have topics to talk about with God!
I think tonight was just about the discipline of this challenge for me. I didn’t get any huge revelations but I’ve committed to this challenge, so I did the exercise.
We have conversations with family, friends and even people who we don’t know. A simple conversation with God is something we all should get behind and pour our hearts out to Him. Our needs, failures and most of all our graditude for His grace.
I learned that my prayed will be answered and to trust the process.
The five minutes went really fast when praying that way.
I’ve learned I spend too much time thanking God, and not enough time asking and confessing.
In a relatively short time, I feel more aware of the work being done in my life. After thanking God for my church family, I get a call from our head pastor today to personally let me know of a change taking place at church. That was truly special.
Using the guide helps me to stay focused and intentional when I pray.
I learned how eye opening it is when thanking God, how involved He really is in my life!
I always want to open with praise and hallowing His Name and who He is. I put myself in His place, how I feel when my children ask for things from more of an expectation that I am here to get things for them. I don’t want my Heavenly Father feeling that way. I want to always come with not only a thankful heart, confessing and asking the Spirit to reveal any unclean thoughts or actions that offended not only Him, but to my neighbor.
It has been a difficult last few weeks and we put our request on the throne, coming before Him boldly and thanking Him for the answer, even if the outcome is not what we think. Either way, it still comes down to trust and memorizing the promises He has given and writing them back to Him.
Finish off my prayers with thanksgiving and praise and rejoicing in Him. I have found the more I do that, my thoughts aren’t on my problems, but on what great things He has done and feeling His peace.
Through balanced prayer, I see God in a different light, I see my life in a different light, and my delight in God and his ways deepens.
Asking for guidance to help lead other men in our church as well as myself with my walk in faith. Confessing I know nothing without the leadership of God. Thanking God for my path I have been set on and may I use it to glorify His name.
Reminder of how blessed I am.
This was a great method to organize my prayer. Kept me grounded and reflective.
I learned it’s good to create a balance in my prayers and using the P.A.C.T. method is a good way to do that.
Good approach though I may have the “P” stand for praise and adoration which gets me in a place of gratitude and awe before I get into asking. Thanks Vince!
I’m bad at praying regularly throughout the week, so I feel that structured prayer will help me make it easier and not seem like such a daunting task
Easy way to organize the thoughts. The acronym was easy to follow.
It feels natural to do this Most of the time I pray this way
It feels natural to do this Most of the time I pray this way.
I confessed my love and adoration to Him all over again. He has delivered me from another unhealthy desire and gave me an opportunity (which I jumped on) to talk to my boss today, about eternity. I’m praying for a follow-up appointment from HIM.
Like the balanced approach.
I also like to start my prayers with thanksgiving. I typically haven’t included much confession in prayers in the past. However, in doing so these past couple of days I have been mindful not to repeat the same sins that I had been confessing.
I too often ask for my own needs. I need to pray for others’ needs more — especially if I said I would pray for them.
This is a very practical way to help keep my prayer focused and helps with distractions. I don’t notice time.
I love the acronym (PACT) and recognizing the importance of having balance in my prayer
The PACT method is a wonderful tool to use for my prayer time. It helps me stay focused and not ramble on.
Praying out loud and following the PACT method help keep you centered and on task.
THE BALANCE RECOMMENDED IS A GREAT IDEA
Love the acronym – PACT. I’m good at asking, getting better at thanking, need to work on confessing. This will help.
Most recently I’ve been using ACTS, which Chris Toepfer has shared with the Friday morning men’s group.
Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving , Supplication
Just a slightly different order, but the initial acknowledgment and praise to God feels better to me. Since God knows our heart, does it really matter?
I am becoming more relaxed in my prayer.
I get distracted easily, I think this will keep my mind more focused with the structure it has
This is a very practical way to help keep my prayer focused and helps with distractions. I don’t notice time.
Well…today was an exercise of prayer. I started the day out doing “Day 6” and to be honest…I didn’t get much from it. Until now. What I learned today, through our experiences with my daughter Lillie today showed me the importance of investing that time with the Lord. I am a control freak. Maybe it isn’t always apparent to people around me (maybe it is), but I like to control my circumstances! I felt comfort in that…until I began realizing that there are so many circumstances out if my control. Today was one of them. Typically, I start freaking out (mostly on the inside) due to not being able to change the circumstances. Today was a great reminder to trust God. I instantly felt the need to control my daughter, Lillie’s scary, doctors report but instantly I was reminded, by the Holy Spirit, to give it over to the Lord, ask for His help, and thank Him for His divine plan! I can’t say I felt great emotionally but it felt good to be “out of control” for once, if you know what I mean. Lillie is doing good, improving and on the path to recovery and I am one humbled man, learning to be solely reliant on God’s grace and strength!
Praying out loud helps me to be more in contact without interruptions. I try every day to confess my sins and to ask God to help me be more of a Godly man. I also ask God what is his will for me. Lastly,without fail I thank God for all blessings he has bestowed on me. I continually say “thank you Jesus “
It allowed me to keep my prayers more concise as well as being more intentional
It’s funny watching people’s reactions when I’m sitting at a stop light,hands lifted high,looking heavenward and talking out loud to God! There is something about an honesty feeling that happens when I pray out loud, like I am really bearing my heart to Him. Great exercise Vince.
By “balancing” my prayer, it tends to be more deliberate/specific. I hope this helps me to surrender it to God.
I have found that when praying with intention, purpose, and in a focused manner my prayers are more relational with God and less “laundry list” in nature. The value in praying out loud, for me, is increased focus to communicate and share my thoughts in an intelligent way. Taking a moment in silence helps me to hear God better and feel prepared to pray versus racing through prayer.
For me I noticed that I do thank and ask God daily but I realized I do not confess daily when I need to. When I do confess I feel a sense of God’s presence but I need to learn to forgive myself during confession.
This exercise in being intentional with prayer is a change from what I’m used to but it truly helps me focus in with laser like vision about what I’m saying. I, like many men, have said more than once that we just need someone to “teach us how to pray” and these sessions are making this happen in my life!! Very grounding and powerful!
A balance in prayer is needed and being in tune with the Spirit to know what areas of your life need prayer is important. I have learned that sometimes you need to remain quiet and let the Spirit guide your thoughts.
Prayer time actually began to feel more focused and personal. Thank you
Same here bro
Format is similar to what we used/learned in EMAW and is helpful. The out loud part helped me the most to keep the brain focused. The thanks was needed as I ask God for a lot and it’s right and good to say thank you for my health, opportunities and so much God provides daily.
My prayers normally follow this sort of format so it wasn’t necessarily a different experience, but in the past I haven’t usually prayed out loud unless I was in deep despair. Now that I’m praying every day, out loud, it completes the connection in ways that I didn’t feel previously.
Interesting to see different elements of prayer.
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
I’m definitely used to asking and thanking in my prayers, that felt natural. I’m finding that I don’t usually confess much in my prayers, and I think in order for me to grow more, that is an area I’ll need to add to my prayer balance.
I am there with Tim, this is a good reminder to balance confession in with prayer as I too often overlook that with the largest focus being on requests and some on thanking, but not as much confession
Through the process of starting the day with prayer I’ve found that through the day i turn to God for joy, for strength, for requests, for guidance. Over all this has been very enlightening to a new life with God as a friend and in control.
Thanks Vince for the P.A.C.T. structure. 5 minutes is not nearly enough time but I’m sure we all knew it would never be. This is a strong foundation to a renewed prayer life and intimate relationship with our Lord.
It’s a great template and like the P as a pact or covenant to how I can be balanced with my pray time. Thanksgiving time was great!
When I did this I found God bringing more and more things too mind too pray for.
I have committed to this style of prayer without even realizing this is what I do. I learned that this technique creates conversation with God. It opens you up to talk more, confess, and then ask for forgiveness/his blessings.
My prayers are mostly about Thanksgiving and I realize having a balance of the 3 is necessary along with adoration
The balanced prayer helps me to put things into perspective. When I come to God with a list of requests/needs, to be mindful of the things that God has and is doing in my life reminds me that He cares and that He listens. Today, I am praying for wisdom. To better understand God Will in my life.
PACT is a great place for me to start in prayer as well. Typically I like to praise God before asking, confessing and thanking Him. The out loud praying makes it tangible and somehow I have clarity of things I hadn’t thought of in a while. Like people to pray for, confessions that needed to come out. In quiet prayer, I try to hear Him but when I peak out loud, the Holy Spirit seems to guide me right along.
I learned to have balanced prayer. I would say I am either thankful or asking most of the time. Thanks Vince. This helps a lot.
Whenever I pray, the Lord bends down to listen. When I truly surrender things I am holding to Him, in return I gain an overpowering peace + direction. This is not a once a day thing for me. It’s a whenever I need to seek Him thing. Which, as it turns out, is all the time. Thank you Lord!
I learned this prayer pattern decades ago, and still find that it is helpful to get me into an honoring conversation with God. Too often the temptation is to share just petitions or thanks, leaving out Reverence for the Creator of All, the one who literally died for me.
Praying out loud really helps me stay focused!
5 minutes have been going by fast. It seems I start off slow and stuck, but following this helped rolls smoothly. Thank you
I am learning that prayers out loud make me be more thoughtful about my prayers. I concentrate more on what I am saying, I’m more deliberate in what I pray. When I confess a sin aloud, it gives more gravity. My prayer is that all of us will grow in our understanding of our Lord and that we will all grow closer to Him.
Learning how to pray out loud without it being awkward.
I’ve learned how to make my prayers much more intentional.
PACT is simple and awesome, Vince, thank you. In time I’m sure it will be easier to interweave all these elements without having to remember the acronym. Shall we also be praying adoration into this? PACT seems like the Lord’s Prayer, simplified so we can remember the elements of prayer. Or, should adoration flow naturally?
praying out loud – helps slow down the conversation – and helps focus the conversation – as though I’m having a conversation with a friend…who knows my every need 🙂
This has been a great way to start my day for the last week. PACT is a good acronym. How are you guys enjoying praying out loud? Have you normally done that? I have a little in the past but do think it increases my focus.
I prayed where there was a clock in front of me…bad idea. I ended up looking at the clock and checking the time to balance the prayer, which seemed weird. I like praying through PACT, or ACTS, but I found that I was checking the clock to “balance” rather than focusing on talking with God. I understnad that this is my more my personality, not necessarily the method.
Like the acronym but do it in reverse; Thanks, Confess, Ask.
It keeps me focused during prayer
I appreciate the acronym as a reminder for the things I should include in prayer. It made me more aware as I tried to balance the amount of time in each category.
This kind of praying feels more complete.
I need to spend more time strategizing how I can serve others and less on how I can be served.
Something I’m learning to practice as I pray- not worrying about feeling what I’m saying so much as sharing something with God and choosing to trust that He will answer and act one way or another. Reflecting before I pray is sort of new to me too. I tend to think as I pray typically.
Today’s CTA helped me realize that I often separate my prayers of confession from my prayers of asking with thanksgiving. Today challenged me to include confession during my regular prayer time. I really appreciate all of your comments! Thanks, brothers!
P.A.C.T. is a wonderful framework and a powerful tool to remain focused during my daily time especially by praying out loud. Thank you.
I am learning to focus on the important things of this 35 day challenge. And I’m thankful that I get to got through this time with you men of God.
Writing down a few points of each prayer focus helped me to stay on track for the most part.
I have followed the ACTS style of prayer for years but what is making an impact is the praying out loud in a quiet place free of distractions. I find my thought process doesn’t wander and seems much more meaningful. I find that I can spend more time in prayer as things just keep coming to mind as I verbalize my prayer, almost like doing two things at once.
Good stuff!! Thank you!
Good guideline to keep us on track in our daily prayer time.

Balancing my prayer time is difficult for me. Usually I will pray for specific things at different times of the day. Praying for multiple things seems like it will lead to squirrels, but I can understand how it can also be helpful.
I found that this structure of prayer helps me focus my prayer time on not just asking, but confessing to God my sins and thanking him for my many blessings. PACT will become my new method of prayer. Thank you for this challenge.
I feel that when I pray, that I am praying and asking for similar things, by separating prayer by the PACT method I hope to be more spontaneous with my prayer time.
I found that this structure of prayer helps me focus my prayer time on not just asking, but confessing to God my sins and thanking him for my many blessings. PACT will become my new method of prayer.
I like the acronym as it is simple and easy to use. Thank You!
I did not feel so selfish just asking for everything.
I like ACT, but find reverse order aligns with my own habits. I think my asking aligns with Gods will better if the other two have already been covered.
I’ve noticed that I spend WAY too much time in prayer ASKING God and not much time in confessing and thanking him. Thanks for the easy acronym, helps keep my prayer time balanced.
I’m with Henry on this one. I prefer to enter into prayer with Thanksgiving first. I am realizing I do a very poor job of staying focused even for just five short minutes.
ACTS is an OLD accrement that I (and others) R very familiar with in regards 2 prayer.
It stands 4; Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, & Supplication. We all need 2 start R prayers
with adoration; remembering who we R talking 2, & adoring/worshiping HIM….MIKE..
I’ve been in a spiritual funk for a while and have been more focused on asking (ok, many times demanding) in my prayer time. Praying through PACT this morning I realized that in the areas where I feel deficient and lacking and haven’t felt God moving, God has been walking me through it this whole time. But it took me to actually stop and look for where he’s been working, Thank him for that, and Confess my stubbornness and resistance to him.
For me it’s easier to get the 5 min this way.
P.s. GOD IS GOOD!
That praying out loud does keep me focused.
I like bring it all together
Wow pact was awesome! Today it help me to focus on key things that I needed to pray about and also it helped me to be more thankful of what he’s already done.
For me I like to give thanks before asking. Psalms 100:3 “Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name.”
This reminds me of another acronym CARROT – Confession, Adoration, Request, Remembering Others, and Thanksgiving….they both help me stay focused as I pray.
Confessing was reviling, I often thank and ask, but confession has not been a part of my prayer life.
I like the reminder of balance in my prayer life. Less of me and more about lifting up others around me.
I became aware that what I asked for, what I confessed, and what I was thankful for…at least for this mornings excersize, is that they were all connected. Which I thought was pretty cool….one led right to the next. Thanks!
PACT! Very nice way to cover all the bases and created that balance I’d been, so often, missing in my prayer time. Thanks Vince.
Good Morning brothers! In putting all 3 aspects together, we have to be asking God according to his will. Which means we shouldn’t be asking for TV. What I got was that if we are asking God according to His will, it is for something we are lacking or not doing. Often this revolves around sin, which gives us an opportunity to confess, and then to thank Him for delivering us. In my time this morning I found myself repeating this little PACT over and over with different things. What an excellent lesson!

Well said brother!
I’ve got a lot on my mind this morning right away. This helped me not spend my prayer time just asking. I appreciate that and needed that today especially.
“And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words.”
Before I started praying this morning I looked down and noticed my bible open to my daily reading for the day and Matt 6:7 reminded me of perhaps where my prayer life has been. Praying out loud helps me to determine if my words are empty phrases. Are my words from my heart or just my mouth? And as I look at PACT, I realize I am heavy on asking and thanking but my pride has me leaving the confessing out. It certainly helps to cleanse my heart with confession before I thank my Lord for his abundant blessings!
I am getting very comfortable praying out loud.
Using the PACT acronym to keep my prayer balanced is going to be a catalyst to enhancing my prayer life. I found that writing out a few bullet points before hand really helped guide my prayer as well.
PACT I like it. Great reminder for starting each day. Thank you.
How refreshing to organize my prayers that end up cyclical. I thank God for provisions, ask to provide, confess my wrongs, and thank Him for being Awesome and giving the glory to Him.
I like the acronym to help remember te steps. Is there anyway to see/hear the previous days message? I missed 2 and can’t find the emails
The asking and thanking was easy. However the confession was powerful. I confessed I have not been considerate of my wife’s feelings and need to make amends.
P.A.C.T. keeps me on task during my prayer time.
I found the P.A.C.T method to be effective in organizing my prayer time. It helped me focus my conversation with God!
I love using the acronym PACT!
It actually helps me plan how to pray which keeps the squirrels away! 🙂
I like it helped me to pray things that I normally don’t good format
Repeated it a couple of times !!
The P.A.C.T, is underway.
Thankful to all those out there who have helped me grow closer to God. Thank you God for putting this community of believers around me. We need each other brothers. Pray on!
All the things that we’ve focused on this week have helped me to create not only length of prayer that’s significant but also meaningful content and intentionality in my prayers.
I like the easy format to be a guide!
Praying out loud helps me focus and remember through the day, PACT puts a balance, This has emphasized how personal God desires to be us. We just need to make him the priority in our lives!
That I need to let go of control.
I like the Pact, it helps me with balance
I learned that I can come to God in the same way I can my earthly father. In this I know has my best interests at heart and that He will love, forgive and guide me.
This is great! Adds structure and takes the mystique out of how to pray. Not only will this help my prayer life but it’s easy to share with others in my life!
The Pact method is helpful , but I find that as I pray I go back and forth on asking and confessing and thanking. My morning prayers usually start out in praising and thanking God for all he has done, then asking for strength and forgiveness for my sins (confessing) and then again thanking him for the many blessings in my life, and asking again for continued guidance through his Holly Spirit and back to thanks for his loving grace. It covers the PACT method, but jumps around as my thoughts come out in words.
My prayer is beginning to change. I’m along for other period, not myself. This is exciting.
I found that was actually a little difficult to balance my prayer this morning as I don’t usually do this. Will take some practice to get it right but seems like a good idea.
I so look forward to getting up in the morning and talking with God. Through God, I am seeing Him answering many of my prayers. This week my focus had been more on God and less on myself. Praying out loud, really works. Able to stay focused. Looking forward to what God has in store for me today.
I found myself intermixig the 4 components. I began with thanking and found as I was thankful I was asking for continued blessing and more support. As I was doing this I had more clarity and convictions of what I needed to confess. And then asking again for help in overcoming these weaknesses. And so it went snowballing into 10min.
It is because of Jesus that we even have the opportunity to speak to God. All of these parts together of asking, thanking, and confessing is what makes the relationship real.
I needed to start with confessing so could ask free of burden. Then finish with thanking God
It was great to have a structure to my prayer. In the past I would usually just cover one type of prayer when I prayed, this gives a lot more balance.
I am learning to let God be in control.
P.A.C.T This will definitely help with Prayers. It will great a Authentic conversation with GOD
I have used this PACT before where P is used for Praise. I like the idea of praying out load as it adds an informal, yet personal element to our conversations with God.
PACT helps me to remember to pray in multiple areas. Sometimes one of the letters gets most of the prayer time. ACTS has been one that helps my prayer time keep balanced-also add praying out loud.
I pray to know Christ and make Him known. I pray to hear that little voice, feel that little itch that tells me to do this or that through out the day. I pray not to be distracted by the world or by my own thoughts.
I prayed this prayer out loud with my wife. She was encouraged and blessed… and so was I!
Helps to keep prayers focused. Also helps with the intentuonality.
P.A.C.T. easy to remember. Great way to start the day
I really love the balance of PACT. I often times just ask in prayer, sometimes getting to the thanking part, and rarely the confession. This is a great acronym to help keep my prayer time balanced.
It has helped to reinforce my understanding that there should be a balance in prayer. It is not all about asking but letting him know out loud that we are thankful that he is always stnading with and behind us
I really like this acronym, it helps me stay on track during prayer, and is a great reminder not to spend too much time just asking God for things, which has been something I struggle with in prayer.
Learning what prayer really is
As I was praying “ with balance” it reminded me of the Lord’s Prayer as it has different components.
I’ve never personally liked using the ACT method of praying. I was always taught to “enter with praise and thanksgiving,” even as I was praying this morning I instinctively started with giving thanks. Ever since Pastor Jeff did a sermon series on the Lord’s Prayer I have used that as my model to follow during my extended prayer time.
PACT teaches me to be mindful and intentional about balance in my prayers and highlighted that confession is the area that I need to continue to be more self-aware of during prayer time. PACT helped me to be less self-focused.
This PACT method was helpful to remind me to hit these all important areas of prayer even if it’s coming out in a different order. The confession part has been the most beneficial to me because I feel more thankful and more likely to ask him for things after I’ve confessed my shortcomings. I’m thankful for His mercy and grace today!
I usually start with thanking God so starting with requests is unnatural for me, so I guess I learned that it’s not my favorite way to pray?
Today I learned that I had an actual conversation with God which helps me be closer in my relationship with him.
I found having done each of these before and only in the last few days I could be more specific in my conversation with God on the past 24 hours in my PACT.
Definitely keeps you in tact with the conversation with God in prayer. Eliminates those detours that pop into your head during this time.
Thank you Vince for continuing new direction for how to talk to God.
This PACT method is a wonderful tool to use for my prayer time. It helps me stay concentrate on what I need to say to God.
Good morning brothers. Today I tied all aspects that we have been practicing these last six days into one prayer session. I find it difficult to pray out loud I’m always wondering what to say but this method of PACT worked well. Towards the end of my five minute session with God I was overwhelmed with emotion. I actually felt like I was going to cry during the confession stage of my prayer. I’d love to hear how the rest of you are doing.
Very good structure on a new way to talk to God. Really puts perspective and some great direction to keep that time with God in check.
Thank you Vince for continuing the great direction to stay connected with God.
This is the way I have been praying all week as each discipline was discussed I just compounded it onto the other disciplines learned. It does help with balancing my conversation with God. Putting it into an acronym helps to remember the components but practice is the key to developing it into habit.
Peace of mind at heart
Prayer is immensely powerful. I always start out in gratitude, then I ask for things in my own life then I ask Jesus to touch others in how they are struggling. I also have a prayer journal that I document my prayers. Be bold and specific in prayer. Then ask for direction in areas you need to make a decision on – open-ended questions for Him to respond.
Love this acronym. This will bring up a lot of structure to my own prayers but also help me in teaching prayer to others. Very simple to remember and do.
Balance was definitely key here! I enjoyed this method, but found that I had patterns in prayer that came through as I was praying in this order. It’s good for me to keep/be reminder of “balance” in prayer, especially as I’m in prayer for longer timeframes.
I prayed for your balance today. Spiritual vertigo is never good.
Helps me remember different areas to pray in.
Speaking out loud certainly does help keep the “squirrels” from running off with my thoughts.
I really like the P.AC.T method. It helped to me to be more balanced in my prayer.
Being mindful of “P.A.C.T.” helps me to be more balanced and intentional in my conversations with God. Thanks Vince.
This is good. Most of my prayers are expression of gratitudes. To me, it feels right to pray in that order.
The P A C T method helped me focus on God and stay on task. Thanks Vince!
This method helped me to remember some things I usually forget and my prayer felt a bit more fulfilling today.
There’s power in prayer and even more so out loud.
