Every month I create prayers based on the names of people we love. This ongoing list of names and prayers can be found at the top of this blog, on the tab titled, “PRAYING NAMES.”
If you would like me to create a prayer based on a specific name, please leave a comment below. I’ll research the name and include it in a future month.
Ann; Anne: Gracious; God has favored me
Heavenly Father, I pray that Ann will live her name. I pray that she will accept God’s favor and receive his grace. I pray that she will live a life filled with grace to others and that she will share her love of God with others throughout her life. Amen.
Christine, Christina, Kristen, Kirsten: Follower of Christ
Heavenly Father, I pray that Christine will live her name. I pray that she will follow Jesus all of her life and that she will be an example of your life and love for all of us to those around her. Amen.
Tracy, Traci: Descendent of the fierce one; warlike
Heavenly Father, I pray that Tracy will live her name. I pray that she will have a fierce love for you and that her passion for what breaks your heart will drive her to love you more and seek to tell others of your love for them. I pray that she will be warlike in defense of her faith all the days of her life. Amen.
Sheila, Celia: Heavenly
Heavenly Father, I pray that Sheila will live her name. I pray that she will be reminded daily that her ultimate home is in heaven with you. I pray that she will spread that understanding to others in her life so that many people will glorify your name because of her. I pray that she will help spread your heavenly love here on earth with those she meets. Amen.
