I will continue to compile names and create prayers. If you would like a name added, please use the “Comment” button at the end of this post and send me a name or two. I will research the names, create a prayer and add it to the list.
After today, these five names will be added to the list. You can access the continuing list by clicking on the button at the top, labeled “PRAYING NAMES.”
I pray you and your loved ones will be blessed.

BRANDON; BRENDON: broom hill
Heavenly Father, I pray that Brandon will live his name. I pray that he will trust in Jesus to sweep his heart clean and maintain his life in a manner pleasing to God. I pray also that just as the woman in Luke swept the house and searched until she found the lost coin, that Brandon would never stop seeking God. I pray also that Brandon’s life will be an example to help others find the treasure that is you.
