Why all acids turns blue litmus into red and methyl orange to red?

Litmus paper,methyl orange and phenophthalin are all essentially pH indicators.There colour depends on the pH of solution.`All acids have a pH less than 7 and thus turn blue litmus red and similarily methyl orange red.(Methyl orange becomes red below pH 7 and litmus turns red).Similarily phenophthalin changes it's colour to pink over a pH of 7 and so it does when we add a basic solution to it.
