PRAYING NAMES

As some of you know, I research the meaning of names. Then I create an individual prayer that a person would live the meaning of their name. After I post them here, I move them to the permanent ‘PRAYING NAMES” page at the top of this blog.

Please email me or leave a comment with names of loved ones you would like to pray for. Then join me in praying for our loved ones by praying the meaning of their names.

Here are the latest.


Lynn: from the lake

Heavenly Father, I pray that Lynn will live her name. I pray that she will live her life as if she is continually baptized in your holy, living water. I pray that she will know your living water as a deep, cool and clear lake. I pray that she will then take your water of life and share it with those around her, who may not know your love and grace.



Martin: God of war

Heavenly Father, I pray that Martin will live his name. I pray that he will become a soldier in your army, fighting evil and protecting the innocent in your name. I pray also that he will be obedient to your leading as commander in chief of his life.


Taryn, Tarin: of the earth (terra)

Heavenly Father, I pray that Taryn will live her name. I pray that she will live, knowing she is of this earth but that her eternal home is with you. I pray that she will remember her heavenly home and set her sights on you in all things. 


Wyatt: son of guy

Heavenly Father, I pray that Wyatt will live his name. I pray that he will remember that he is your son, your child and that he will live his life in a God-honoring and obedient way.

I always need to remember to be like Wyatt... remembering that I am His son, and being honoring and obedient!

Carol, you have such great ideas! Finding the meanings of names and praying for each is so wonderful! I suppose you know the original meaning of Carol is "song of joy or praise." Keep singing!
