Praying Honor for The Name, Day 206

Day 206


Praying Honor For The Name

I called on Your name, Yahweh, from the depths of the Pit. You hear my plea: Do not ignore my cry for relief. You come near when I call on You; You say: "Do not be afraid."
Lamentations 3:55-57 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

Calling on The Name, Yahweh, This is the beginning of the model prayer as taught to us by our Lord....
"Our Father in heaven, Your name be honored as holy."
Matthew 6:9 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

Think for one moment about what it is that Jesus/YahShua is teaching here.

He is teaching us to appeal first to God on behalf of God's name. This is included in the Lament by Jeremiah as he says that he is "calling on" God's Name. Even though Jeremiah is acknowledging his need for God's intervention in his situation ... the main appeal is on the behalf of God's Name, or reputation.

This is in The Name.
