Join me for this series, where we’ll explore the Names of God in letters to my friends, prayers, and excerpts from touching devotionals.
Inspired by Tony Evans’ book, Praying Through The Names of God (2014, Harvest House Publishers), I wrote a collection of prayers and words of encouragement to a dear friend and mentor struggling through an illness. My friend is fully recovered now (praise the Lord), but I was so encouraged in the process that I wanted to share them with you in this year’s 31-Day Writing Challenge over on the Five Minute Fridays. Our host, Kate Motaung provides daily prompts which you’ll notice in the Table of Contents, below.
Some of these names may be pretty familiar to you, but I think you’ll discover many more that you’ve never heard before.
That is the wonder of God’s Word. There is always more to learn. The complete knowledge of God is too vast for us to take in. But learning about the Names of God might help us understand more about His character and why we can trust Him.
I’ll start with an October Reset which, for me, is in order to get this challenge started! Every week I’ll take a break from the series to give you a Reset Update.
