Based on Praying the Names of God and Praying the Names of Jesus, two bestselling books by Ann Spangler, this unique Bible study is designed to help individuals and groups explore the most important of God's names and titles as they are revealed in 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 Old Testament: El Shaddai, Elohim, Adonai, Abba, El Elyon—God Almighty, Mighty Creator, Lord, Father, God Most High, and more. And in the New Testament: Immanuel, Prince of Peace, Lamb of God, Bread of Life, Yeshua . . . through his names and titles, we come to understand more fully how Jesus reveals God's heart to us.
52 Weeks Praying the Names of God is a study that explores the most prominent names of God throughout the Bible 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."
