I was saying my evening prayers a few nights ago. I always try to start my prayers with praise. It just seems rude to start asking for things right of the gate. As I was in praise mode, I began to think of different names we have for God – our Father, Healer, Provider, etc.
As I prayed those names, people who fell under those categories came to mind. As I referenced God as Healer, I remembered all my friends and family suffering with health problems. When I prayed to Abba, I thought of the many orphaned children throughout the world.
I’m sure this isn’t an original idea for some of you, and I don’t take credit for it. All of my great God ideas come from the Lord, anyway. I just thought I’d share.
