Publishers Description A twenty-six-week devotional study by the bestselling coauthor of Women of the Bible Names in the ancient world did more than simply distinguish one person from another, they often conveyed the essential nature and character of a person. This is especially true when it comes to the names of God recorded in the Bible. Praying the Names of God explores the primary names and titles of God in the Old Testament to reveal the deeper meanings behind them. El Shadday, Elohim, Adonay, Abba, El Elyon---God Almighty, Mighty Creator, Lord, Father, God Most High---these are just a few of the names and titles of God that yield rich insights into his nature and character. Praying the Names of God shows readers how to study and pray God s names by focusing each week on one of the primary names or titles of God. * Monday---readers study a portion of Scripture that reveals the name. * Tuesday Thursday---readers pray specific Scripture passages related to the name. * Friday---readers pray Scripture promises connected to the name. By incorporating the divine names and titles into their prayers---and learning about the biblical context in which the name was revealed---readers will gain a more intimate understanding of who God is and how he can be relied on in every circumstance of their lives. Praying the Names of God is a unique devotional, one that offers a rich program of daily prayer and study designed to lead people into fresh encounters with the living God. The book is also available as an Abridged Audio Pages CD."

Reviews - What do customers think about Praying The Names Of God-Hardcover?
Educational and Inspirational Mar 22, 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 8, 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.
God's Names in Prayer and Personal Growth. Feb 5, 2007
This is an excellent resource for growing more intimate with God. Scripturally based insights are a help to any seeker of Truth who desires to develop a greater trust in God and His faithfulness. What God says, He will do - He speaks from Who He Is.
A Brilliant Guide to Worship Jan 29, 2007
My wife and I had already experienced this book through our local library, which limited us to a two-week loan period which, we soon found, was not nearly enough. We had decided to utilise this work in our fortnightly home bible study group meetings this year. We purchased four copies of the standard print version locally for the use of our members, but the large print was not available here in Australia, so this site came to the rescue admirably. We cannot praise the book more highly. Ann Spangler has grasped her subject with a sure knowledge of the love of God and His Grace. We also have her "Praying the Names of Jesus" but have not yet managed to delve into it deeply. We look forward to it. "Praying The Names of God" has our highest recommendation for anyone searching for a fuller meaning in their Christian lives when dedicating their lives to God's love and care.
Absolutely Insightful! Jan 8, 2006
This book is awesome if you are interested in strengthening your prayer time with God! Since I have been reading this book, praying, and logging in my journal.. I have seen answers to prayers! My faith is strengthened daily as God's promises are fulfilled. I encourage EVERYONE to buy this book. Open your hearts, minds, souls (and bibles) and you will truly be blessed!
