As part of my ongoing ministry to provide a way for us to pray for our loved ones, today I offer you four more names, their meaning and ways you can pray for people who have those names.
These names will be added to the burgeoning list of names and prayers, found on the PRAYING NAMES page of this blog. Go to the tab, titled “PRAYING NAMES” to find prayers for your loved ones. 

If a name is not there, please leave a comment here with names you would like me to research and create prayers for.


Constance, Connie: constant

Heavenly Father, I pray that Connie will live her name. I pray that her faith and trust in you will be constant and ever growing throughout her life. I pray also that you will be her constant guide, counselor and friend and that her example of faith will be a constant encouragement to others.

Gregory, Greg: vigilant, watchful

Heavenly Father, I pray that Greg will live his name. I pray that he will live his life, ever vigilant in right living. I pray that he will be watchful for your leading, blessings and grace in his life and give thanks to you in all things.

Harold, Harry: army ruler

Heavenly Father, I pray that Harry will live his name. I pray that as a soldier in your army, he will fight against evil wherever he sees it and will live his life wearing the full armor of God for his protection and for your fight.

Susan, Susannah, Suzanna, Susie: lily

Heavenly Father, I pray that Susan will live your name. I pray that she will live her life focusing on purity. I pray that, like the lilies in the field, she will be beautiful to you and to others. I pray that her faith in you will blossom and grow throughout her life and that her life—like the lily—will be representative of Jesus.
