#1wordwednesday / call them by {NAME}

the daily Starr blog Starr haigler 8

When is the last time you prayed for someone by {NAME}?

Yes, there is a time and place for generic prayers. There is also a time to call on our Heavenly Father and be specific – about exactly who we’re interceding for and what we need.

I can pray for my kids.

Or, I can call them each by {NAME} in prayer and ask God to work individually in their lives. 

Tonight during choir practice we ended our time together by each claiming the name of someone that wasn’t there or someone dealing with a specific situation. We prayed over those names.

Specific.

Each person called someone by {NAME}.

I’m reminded of the scripture where God lets Israel know that He calls them by name.

Isaiah 43:1-7 ESV
1 But now thus says the Lord,
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name, you are mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
and the flame shall not consume you.
3 For I am the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
I give Egypt as your ransom,
Cush and Seba in exchange for you.
4 Because you are precious in my eyes,
and honored, and I love you,
I give men in return for you,
peoples in exchange for your life.
5 Fear not, for I am with you;
I will bring your offspring from the east,
and from the west I will gather you.
6 I will say to the north, Give up,
and to the south, Do not withhold;
bring my sons from afar
and my daughters from the end of the earth,
7 everyone who is called by my name,
whom I created for my glory,
whom I formed and made.”

He has created us for His glory. He has formed and made us. He calls us each by {NAME}. He knows who we are and He is with us!

Amen and amen!
