"Praying the Names of God is a reader-friendly guidebook to the character of God as he reveals himself through his names."
-- Ruth Graham --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Back Cover
A twenty-six-week devotional study by the bestselling coauthor of Women of the Bible
Names in the ancient world did more than simply distinguish one person from another, they often conveyed the essential nature and character of a person. This is especially true when it comes to the names of God recorded in the Bible. Praying the Names of God explores the primary names and titles of God in the Old Testament to reveal the deeper meanings behind them.
El Shadday, Elohim, Adonay, Abba, El Elyon--God Almighty, Mighty Creator, Lord, Father, God Most High--these are just a few of the names and titles of God that yield rich insights into his nature and character. Praying the Names of God shows readers how to study and pray God's names by focusing each week on one of the primary names or titles of God.
â¢ Monday--readers study a portion of Scripture that reveals the name.
â¢ Tuesday-Thursday--readers pray specific Scripture passages related to the name.
â¢ Friday--readers pray Scripture promises connected to the name.
By incorporating the divine names and titles into their prayers--and learning about the biblical context in which the name was revealed--readers will gain a more intimate understanding of who God is and how he can be relied on in every circumstance of their lives.
Praying the Names of God is a unique devotional, one that offers a rich program of daily prayer and study designed to lead people into fresh encounters with the living God.
The book is also available as an Abridged Audio PagesÂ® CD.

An added thought: Did you ever go to a friend's funeral and find out all sorts of things about them that you never knew and wish you had known them better? Well, we can go through the Bible many times, and still not be fully aware of how awesome God is. A less familiar approach lets us see things from a different perspective, making things we know intellectually real in our lives.
