This week our world lost a bit of beauty and heaven became even more glorious. My friend, Lisa died after too many years’ battle with cancer. She leaves her legacy though through her husband and three school-age children. She also leaves a legacy of steadfast faith in Jesus.

Several years ago, I began creating prayers for family and friends. I prayed that they would live the meaning of their names. Here is the prayer I created with my friend Lisa in mind. Over the years I have prayed this for her many times. Anyone who knew Lisa, recognized that God answered that prayer. Lisa truly lived the meaning of her name.

Lisa: consecrated to God

Lord, I pray that Lisa will live her name. I pray that Lisa will be fully consecrated to you in everything she is and does. I pray she will live her solemn dedication to you and that she will be a lighthouse to others so that others, too, will be consecrated to you because of her light. Amen.

Please visit the PRAYING NAMES page to find names of people you love. Then pray that they, too will live the meaning of their names. If you don’t find the name you’re looking for, please let me know and I will create a prayer especially for them.

This is a cross-post with my website: I am in the process of moving this blog over to that site so folks can conveniently find me in one spot. I'll be cross-posting here until everything is in place.

I appreciate your patience and grace during the move.
