Each month I create prayers for people we love based on the meaning of their names. These names are then added to the ongoing list at the tab to the right titled, "PRAYING NAMES."
If you don’t find the name of your loved one listed, please leave a comment below. I’ll research it and create a prayer for a future month.
Dennis: god of wine; mountain of Zeus
Heavenly Father, I pray that Dennis will live the meaning of his name. I pray he will remember the true God and that you live—not on a mountain—but are everywhere in this amazing universe. I pray that Dennis will be reminded of the many miracles that you performed on earth, Jesus, beginning with the very first miracle in Canaan—turning water into wine. Amen.
Edward: protector; guardian
Heavenly Father, I pray that Edward will live the meaning of his name. I pray that he will live his life as a protector and guardian of his strong faith in you and that he will seek to aid people who need protection from evil in this world. Amen.
I pray that Martha will live the meaning of her name. I pray that she will live with graciousness and kindness to all, reflecting the graciousness and kindness that comes from you. Amen.
Roxanne: star, bright, dawn
I pray that Roxanne will live the meaning of her name. I pray that she will illuminate the world around her and that her light will be a reflection of God’s love to mankind. Amen.
