Reviews - What do customers think about Praying The Names Of Jesus?
Helps you to Experience Emmanuel! Jan 17, 2007
I'm in my second week of reading this book. I feel it has been a great addition to my time with the Lord. I believe studying the names of Jesus has been bringing me closer to the Lord especially being that my Pastor just started a series on the Names of God on Sundays. Then I got to Page 29 today and started to pray the prayer she had and God interrupted me with some verses so I looked them up John 3:19,20 - 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
This is the Prayer she had in her book I believe she meant well, but alas this is an error and we all must be careful especially as writers:
Lord, how strange it must have been to enter the world as the only sighted man and to encounter a world so enshrouded that people could not see your light.
Oh they saw the light but there were some that desired the darkness more than the light. When you are in a dark room you can't help but notice when a light gets turned on my friend or should I say thee light comes walking in!

If you are looking for a devotional that points you to God, focuses you on who He is, look no further. This book revitalized my daily quiet time. Isn't the point of our quiet time, drawing near to God? What better way to get to know Him than to focus on His name, which shows us who He is. I have been using the book for over a month and many of the names of God come to mind as I begin my daily devotional, or through out the day. God is not some far off cosmic being, He is El-Shaddai, El-Elyon, Elohim, Jehovah - Jireh, and so much more as this book will show you. This is a book every Christian seeking to know who God is should have on their bookshelf. It will help you come to know God more intimately.
