Based on Praying the Names of God and Praying the Names of Jesus, two bestselling books by Ann Spangler, this unique Bible study is designed to help individuals explore the most prominent names God chooses for Himself and how each name can be used in focused, intentional prayer as God reveals His character and heart throughout 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 Old Testament: El Shaddai, Elohim, Adonai, Abba, El Elyon, God Almighty, Mighty Creator, Lord, Father, God Most High, and more. In the New Testament, God is called Immanuel, Prince of Peace, Lamb of God, Bread of Life, Yeshua, and more. Through His names and titles, we come to understand more fully how God reveals His heart to us.
