Ancient of Days, Lord of Hosts, El Shaddai, Abba . . . names did more than simply distinguish one person from another, they often conveyed the essential nature and character of a person. This is especially true when it comes to the names of God in the Bible. In Praying the Names of God readers will learn how to study and pray God's names by focusing each week on one of the primary names or titles of God. By incorporating these divine names into their prayers, and learning about the biblical context in which the name was revealed, readers will gain a more intimate understanding of who God is and how he can be relied on in every circumstance of their lives. Praying the Names of God is a unique devotional, one that offers a rich program of daily prayer and study, designed to lead people into fresh encounters with the living God.
This devotional guide focuses on the various names and titles of God, ones that reveal him as our Creator, our King, the Ancient of Days, our Rock, our Refuge, our Fortress. El Shaddai, Elohim, Adonai, El Roi, El Elyon, Yahweh, Abba are just some of the names that can lead us into deeper prayer and a more confident knowledge of the character and nature of God.
