"Make mine apple pie `a la Mode!" Separately, both the apple pie and vanilla ice cream is good, but together they are very good. I feel like I am getting an extra special treat. Why not splurge? The opportunity does not arise often and I will rise to the occasion.
God rewards us when we seize each opportunity to pray. "Make mine prayer `a la Mode!"
Any good pie begins with a crust foundation, prayer starts on the foundation of faith; God hears and answers prayer. The pie filling is a perfect blend of apples, sugar and cinnamon.
We fill our prayers with praise, confession, thanksgiving and requests. I have used the easy reminder in the acronym A-C-T-S.
Scoops or dollops of ice cream sit atop the apple pie. I top off prayers with portions of God's word and pray In the name of Jesus, God's Son.(1 John 5:14) Prayer `a la Mode may not be found on the menu of my favorite restaurant but it is always available and I don't need to count calories!
