Praying God’s Name and Will

When circumstances would rob me of hope, when troubles would deplete my energy, when hostility would produce confusion, I wait on You, Deliverer from (My) Distresses. Renew my hope, strength and thoughts for it is Your will that I wait on You for deliverance. (God’s name found in Psalm 107:6) (God’s will found in Genesis 49:18; Isaiah 49:23b; Psalm 27:14;62:6-7)

Praying God’s Name and Will

LORD, Your word says, “Blessed are all who wait for (You)!” Your will is that we wait on You for Guidance (Isaiah 30:18b; Lam. 3:25; Psalm 25:4-5). Decisions need to be made everyday–some with far- reaching consequences. I bring them to You in prayer, consciously waiting for Your direction. When I follow Your will, I have the assurance that I will benefit. More importantly, decisions guided by You will increase the faith of others as they see You, Revealer of Your Glory (John 2:11).

Praying God’s Name and Will

A law of life is this: what I sow, I will reap. The second part of that law deals with quantity: The more I sow, the more I reap. Sow generously; reap generously. Sow sparingly; reap sparingly. In other words, the amount of time, energy or resources that I give or use is in direct proportion to the amount I reap. Lord, Your will is that I sow generously. May I be ever alert to opportunities to sow–in word and deed–the message of Your name, Love that Endures Forever. May what I invest in others be harvested to Your glory. (God’s name found in Psalm 136. God’s will found in Luke 6:38; Hebrews 13:16; Proverbs 3:9,10 and 28:27)

Praying God’s Name and Will

“Moral soundness, especially as it is revealed in dealings that test steadfastness of purposes, responsibility or trust.” Such is the definition of  ‘integrity’. May I walk this path of uprightness that my conscience not incur guilt before You. Living a blameless life pleases You. As You Test (My) Heart through Hardships, may my actions be blameless before You and others. (God’s Will found in 1 Kings 9:4 and inferred in Job 2:3; Psalm 25:21) (God’s Name implied in Deut. 8:2)

Praying God’s Name and Will

You are concerned for Your holy name (Ezekiel 36:21). Whatever paths I walk this day, may my actions and words not reveal me as a profaner of the name by which I am called–Christian. Because I live, may no disgrace or shame come to You, LORD Who Values His Name (God’s name implied in Isaiah 48:9)

Praying God’s Will and Name

Fear robs me of the peace You promised (Isaiah 26:3; John 14:27;16:33). As I face stormy situations that would normally cause uncertainty and frustration in my thoughts and emotions, I choose to look beyond them to see You working as LORD of the Storm (Psalm 107:28-30 implied). You turn thunder of terror into thankfulness, lightning of lies into lovingkindness, rain of ridicule into revival and winds of worry into worship. I trust in You and peace is restored as You become my Shelter from the Storm (Isaiah 25:4).

(God’s name implied in 2 Chron. 19:7; God’s will found in Matt. 5:44-45; Prov. 16:7 and 25:21)
