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.

Adelle: noble, kind
Heavenly Father, I pray that Adelle will live the meaning of her name. I pray that in all things, her character will be both noble and kind and that she will dwell upon only things that are praiseworthy. Amen.

Clark: clerk
Heavenly Father, I pray that Clark will live the meaning of his name. I pray that in all areas of life, he will take on the mantle of good stewardship over the things you have entrusted to his care. I pray also that he will give ready and good assistance where you show him there is a need. Amen.

Lester: from Leicester, England
Heavenly Father, I pray that Lester will live the meaning of his name. I pray that he understands that—like each person on earth—regardless of where he makes his earthly home, his true home is in heaven with you. I pray that he will always keep an eye upon his eternal home and live his live with that in mind. Amen.

Rhonda: noisy
Heavenly Father, I pray that Rhonda will live the meaning of her name. I pray that all her life she will cry out to worship you in song so that, like Psalm 98, she will make a joyful noise unto you, Lord.

These are sort of funny meanings, to me. Adelle is a beautiful name, don't know anyone with that one. Always enjoy this series Carol!

What a unique idea, Carol. I've actually known 2 Adelle's in my life!

@ Chris and Eileen - thank you for stopping by. Chris-I agree that some of the meanings seemed funny (especially Rhonda!) this month. But we can still pray for those people and even those meanings. Even those noisy friends. (smile)
