Prayer Challenge Seventy

DEVOTIONAL: “Stand up and bless the Lord your God from everlasting to everlasting. Blessed be your glorious name, which is exalted above all blessing and praise.” Nehemiah 9:5b, ESV.

CHALLENGE: Praying the names of God. Discovering and getting more familiar with different names of God helps us to “not only recognize God for who He is, but we can relate to Him more personally and intimately.” There are various categories of names that describe the Most High. “Some of God’s names describe who He is,” while others describe what He does. And some of His names are titles, “positions of authority, and roles in relationship with His creation.” In his book, The Battle Plan for Prayer (appendix 6, pages 244-249), Kendrick gives us a concise list of names of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. They range from Elohim, Yahweh, to God the Father, the Anointed One, and Counselor. After you read a list of names of God, meditate on their meanings and use them in your prayer times. How does praying to God as Provider help us in our times of need? How does praying to Him as Father or Comforter lift our spirits when we feel alone or lost?

Praying the names of God brings us closer to His awesome range of personality and attributes. How can we make each Name of God personal, intimate between “me and God”?

  1. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But
    maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

    • Thanks for checking out my blog. I have thought of changing the layout, and it is something that may happen this year (after I find a good one that is). And as for images, I don’t have much I can work with in that regard. But that may change.
