A devotional that will lead you into a fresh experience of God's love and power by exploring the Hebrew names of God revealed in Scripture and showing you how to pray them on a daily basis.

This is especially true when it comes to the names of God recorded in the Bible: El Shaddai, Elohim, Adonai, Abba, El Elyon--God Almighty, Mighty Creator, Lord, Father, God Most High.
Praying the Names of God is a twenty-six-week devotional study that explores the most prominent names of God in the Old Testament to reveal the deeper meanings behind them and to teach you how to pray through them. Each name or title is broken down into three sections each week:
Monday: Study a portion of Scripture that reveals the name. Tuesday-Thursday: Pray specific Scripture passages related to the name. Friday: Pray Scripture promises connected to the name.
Ultimately, you'll gain a more intimate understanding of who God is and how he can be relied upon in every circumstance of your life, enabling you to echo the psalmist's prayer: "Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God."
