(Excerpt from Power Prayers for the Graduate, Barbour Publishing, Inc., 2009)
God, I realize that names must be pretty important—an angel came and told Jesus’ mother what to name him and the same thing with his cousin, John the Baptist.
You have many names in the Bible and they all tell me something about Who you are. You are powerful, protective, and my provider. I call your name and you rescue me.
Help me to live my life so that I can bring honor to your name. So many people call themselves Christians, but their lifestyle doesn’t reflect a life lived like Christ. Help me to be a genuine reflection of You.
