Item description for Praying the Names of God: A Daily Guide by Ann Spangler...
This devotional guide focuses on various names and titles of God, ones that reveal him as our Creator, our King, our Rock, our Refuge, our Fortress, the Lord of Hosts, the Shepherd, the Lord who heals us, the Lord who provides for us, and the Father who loves us. El Shaddai, Elohim, Adonay, El Roi, El Elyon, Yahweh, Abba---these are just some of the names that can lead us into deeper prayer and a more profound knowledge of the character and nature of God. Each book profiles twenty-six names and titles, providing material for six months of devotional reading, concentrating on one name per week. Each of the twenty-six sections will be comprised of the several segments, including a Name Page with the name in English with its Hebrew, Greek, or Aramaic equivalent, and then the following items for each day of the week: *Monday--God Reveals His Name (the Scripture passage that most fully reveals the name or title and a short prayer related to the name) and Understanding the Name (a short Bible study on the name with personal application). *Tuesday through Thursday--Praying the Name (daily devotionals based on a Bible passage related to the name, including a balance of praise, thanksgiving, confession, and intercession) *Friday--Promises Associated with the Name (Scripture promises that follow from the name or title). In the ancient Near East, names carried a much deeper significance than they do in our culture. Rather than simply distinguishing one person from the next, names often conveyed the nature or attributes of the person. To know someone's name was to have an intimate knowledge of that person. This is especially true when it comes to the names and titles of God, which reveal his character. By praying the divine names and titles and learning about the biblical context in which the name was revealed, we can have a more intimate knowledge of who God is and how we can rely on him in every circumstance of our lives.

Reviews - What do customers think about Praying the Names of God: A Daily Guide?
Good Jan 5, 2008
It can be a little repetitive, but otherwise I really liked it. I read it in less than two weeks. I bought it as a Christmas present for my dad and my sister. I bought Praying the names of Jesus for my mom. I haven't read it yet but I will soon. Worth the money. A good read.
Review pages 289-304 before you purchase Aug 16, 2007
I absolutely love this book, however, when I got to page 289, I found that 2 chapters of The Purpose Driven Life had been inserted into the book - omitting the same number of pages from Praying the Names. It cuts off on Thursday, and doesn't pick up until 1 chapter later - on Monday. 15 pages total are missing.
When you receive your copy, check those pages first and return it for a correct version.
Informative and transforming May 14, 2007
Most believers won't study Hebrew or intense theology of the Old Testament. While this book cannot replace that type of formal education, it is a glimpse into the original language of our scriptures. So, it's valuable for us to read, and a gift to understand.
In a beautifully written devotional, Ann Spangler defines the different names used to reference God throughout scripture. Understanding these names & descriptions cannot help but enrich our personal study of scripture, our prayers, and application in our daily lives. While primarily intended as a guide for daily prayer, this book is also a nice reference - and supplement - to scripture studies. In understanding each name, we receive a better (perhaps new) view of our God.
I appreciated the chance to learn titles that have been used to address and refer to God throughout history. I think you will find, like I have, that a new perspective of the One we worship can transform our own prayer, understanding, and outlook.
Educational and Inspirational Mar 23, 2007
Ann Spangler explains the many names of God, revealing countless ways that He speaks to us so that we, in turn, may come to know Him in greater depth. The inherent power in the names of God becomes more real as you pray the names, praising and loving Him for who He is. Because I like it so much, my copy of this book is dog-eared, written in, and generally well-worn.
Really enjoying it. Mar 9, 2007
I'm doing this as a bible study in my small group and I'm really enjoying learning about God and getting to know him more personally! What a better way to get to know someone than learning their name! The other girls in the group have enjoyed it alot also! It's been such a blessing in seeing how we can relate to our heavenly Father. I would recommend this book to anyone who is serious about learning more about God and growing in your walk of faith.
