Is your prayer life stuck in a rut? Do you struggle to stay focused in prayer? Do you feel like you want or need to pray, but dont know how to begin your conversations with God?
You are not alone. The biblical mandate, Devote yourselves to prayer (Colossians 4:2), is one we all have difficulty fulfilling. However, Lalla Lee Campsens book, Daily ACTS, will strengthen your personal commitment to prayer.
Conceived and formulated over a span of more than twenty years, Daily ACTS: A Yearly Guide to Prayer and Praise, provides direction in prayer for individuals and groups alike. With Gods Holy Word as the foundation, and the acronym ACTS (Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication) as the framework, Lalla Lees biblical prayers have been embraced by prayer warriors across the nation. Her guide is a proven resource for cultivating a vibrant prayer life.
Daily ACTS organizes biblical prayers, praises, and reflections by topic. Prayers are arranged alphabetically; for particular people; for the holidays; and by scriptural themes such as the Fruit of the Holy Spirit, the Greatest Commandment and the Lords Prayer.
Prayer is a means of grace. To partake in this means of grace, Daily ACTS offers structure for intercession enriched by devotional reflection and theological insight. By Gods grace, this systematic guide will produce a more meaningful prayer life and intimate relationship with the triune God.
Let Daily ACTS help you devote yourself to prayer and reap the blessings that ensue.

Most of us want to grow our prayer lives, but dont know where to begin. Lalla Lee has created a wonderful resource to help develop a robust and thriving prayer life. Her new book, Daily ACTS, will help you pray while it teaches you how to pray. With the Bible as the foundation for each topic, this book will encourage you to pray in deeper and richer waysI highly recommend it!
Lalla Lee Campsen has made me wish I had been given this book fifty years ago! It is a marvelous resource that will profoundly implement a routine of real, strong and courageous prayer. I foresee an army of prayer warriors emerging in the days to come, changed and equipped by this book, and what an influence that will have on this hurting world of ours. I fully endorse and recommend this book. But a warning: dont read it unless you are willing for your prayer life to change dramatically. You have been warned.
Most books I read make a deposit in me. I glean new information or develop a better understanding and then move to the next book. Daily ACTS, however, was different. Not that I didnt receive valuable insights from it. I did. The book was biblical, theological, devotional and very practical. Daily ACTS went beyond making a deposit in me. It drew something out of me, a deeper longing to know Christ more intimately and His Word more thoroughly. Lalla Lee Campsen has spent years on her knees and it shows.
Praying Gods Word through a structured (ACTS) and alphabetical format was a new and seemingly limiting way to pray for me, but it proved to be quite the opposite. Praying this way has blown open my prayer life! Guided by His very words from scripture (instead of my own fears and needs), I am bathed in comfort and confidence that He hears and answers our prayers.
Daily ACTS is an easy to use, spirit-filled prayer guide for all ages. This marvelous book integrates biblical references and special types of prayers with topics people often think about.

Every chef has a test kitchen to try out the recipes before they serve their special guests at a dinner party. I have been blessed to be a part of Lalla Lees Daily ACTS test group. For years, we have met weekly together to pray for our children, families, friends & this next generation worldwide. Following her example found in Daily ACTS, we have prayed week by week from A-Z. How thankful I am to invite you to come join us as you read through Daily ACTS! "Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good, blessed is the one who trusts in Him." This will be a book you will want to share with all and invite them saying Come, see, and pray with me.
Witnessing the evolution of Daily ACTS from inception to final polish, as I was fortunate to do, it was plain early on that the concept, method, and execution was the result of vigilance and effort, of focus and determination, patience and study, and over a span of some twenty years. So, while we must call this a first book, and though Lalla Lee Campsen will be considered a new author, this is not the work of a novice, but that of a veteran writer and thinker, a woman not only in possession of all the right instincts, but with the talent and grace to give them speech.
