The names of those who love Jesus are written in His book of life. Those people will live with Him in heaven forever. Those names are important. They have meaning.
I love to pray that people would live the meaning of their names. Once you know what their names mean, it’s easy to remember to pray for them in that way.
Each month, I create prayers based on the meaning of names. This month, we can pray for Maxine and Monte. If you know someone with these names, please pray for them. If you have someone you’d like me to create a prayer for, please leave a comment and I’ll return in a future month with a prayer especially for them.
Maxine: the greatest
Dear Jesus, we pray Maxine will live the meaning of her name. We pray she will understand her great worth as your child. We pray also that she will know the full value of the greatest gift she will ever receive—the grace and mercy you provided her on the cross. Amen.
Monte; Monty: mountain
Dear Jesus, we pray Monte will live the meaning of his name. We pray he will have a lifetime of mountain-top moments where he experiences your presence and love. We pray also that he will learn the many lessons you taught when you spoke with your people atop mountains, where the Father made promises and on Calvary Hill where you shed your blood for Monte’s salvation. Amen.
