Each month I create prayers for people we love based on the meaning of their names. These additional 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.
Heavenly Father, I pray that Amy will live the meaning of her name. I pray that she will understand your deep love for her and will see her worth through your eyes. Amen.
Joan: God is gracious
Heavenly Father, I pray that Joan will live the meaning of her name. I pray that she will understand and accept your grace, so freely given. I pray also that she will reflect your grace to others that they may see you through her life. Amen.
Heavenly Father, I pray that Roy will live the meaning of his name. I pray that he will look upon Jesus as the source of his salvation through the shedding of Jesus’ lifeblood. I pray that when he thinks of his name, it will remind him always of Jesus’ precious gift to him and the world. Amen.
Heavenly Father, I pray that Thomas will live the meaning of his name. I pray that he will joyfully accept God’s twin gifts of grace and mercy and understand that accepting the gift of forgiveness means returning the gift to forgive others. Amen.
