PRAYING NAMES: Louise and Martin

Louise Martin


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. The root of the name of the month March comes from Mars, the Roman god of war. It is appropriate therefore that our two names for March both have to do with the theme of war: Louise and Martin.

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.

Louise; Louisa: fights with honor; renowned warrior

Dear Jesus, we pray Louise will live the meaning of her name. We pray she will realize the depth of the spiritual battle of good and evil that surrounds her. We pray she will put on your full armor for protection from evil and will fight in your army with honor. Please surround her with your protection and guard her from evil all the days of her life. Amen.

Martin, Marty: warlike

Dear Jesus, we pray Martin will live the meaning of his name. We pray he will stand tall in the fight against evil and that he will remain a soldier in your army. Please secure your armor on Martin and protect him from evil at all times. Amen.
