Prayers usually fall into one of five categories.
Adoration: We celebrate the beauty and majesty of God. It can be both humbling and uplifting, reminding us of our place before God, yet filling us with joy over an ocean sunset or artistic masterpiece.
Thanksgiving: We respond to God’s presence and actions in our lives. The immensity of God’s gifts are often overlooked in “good times,” but how lost we’d be without them.
Confession: We acknowledge our sinfulness and shortcomings before God. Yet, we can celebrate in the undeserved love poured out for us in the God’s promise of forgiveness.
Intercession: We move beyond ourselves and pray on behalf of others in the community. Growing in the awareness of others suffering leads to generosity and a desire to take action.
Petition: We ask for things of God, as a child would ask a loved and trusted parent. Asking doe not mean we get what we want always, but God wants us to ask.
