PRAYING NAMES: Maureen and Brian

Maureen Brian

I love to pray that people will live the meaning of their names.  Our names have meaning and for those who love Jesus, those names are written in His book of life. They are important.

Today I am praying for one of our church pastors and his wife that they will live the meaning of their names.

What about you? Do you know what your name means? How can you seek to live that meaning?

Maureen: great; sea of bitterness (a variation of Mary)

Heavenly Father, we pray Maureen will live the meaning of her name. We pray that throughout her life she will look to you to lift her above the sea of bitterness and step out in faith to walk on the water with you. We pray also that she will come to see herself as you do, knowing she can do all things, great or small, through your strength. Amen.

Brian: strong; noble

Heavenly Father, we pray Brian will live the meaning of his name. We pray that throughout his life he will stand strong in his faith in you. We pray he will always know your strength and pray also that he will recognize his nobility as a child of you—our King, Jesus. Amen.


NOTE: Each month I write prayers for people to live the meaning of their names. Do you have someone you would like to pray for in this way? Leave me a comment below and I will write a prayer for them in a future month.
