Matt. 6:9 In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.

Worshipping the Name of the Lord is the beginning of prayer. In the place of worship the distraction, temptations, and worries of life begin to be washed away by His Presence. As we saw yesterday, Jesus taught us to begin our time of prayer in worship. As we do, we get a clearer perspective of the way things really are. We become aware of God’s greatness, our smallness, and the insignificance of a lot of what we think is important in life. Today we will look at five more of the covenant names from the Old Testament. (Check out yesterday’s devotion) Remember, the Old Testament is filled with glimpses of our wonderful Savior, Jesus Christ. In these covenant names we see various aspects of the person of Christ and the the benefits He purchased for us at the cross. As you hallow his Name in worship, you will begin to experience His glorious presence. In His Presence is where real prayer begins.


Psa. 23:1 ¶ The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.


Ex. 17:15 And Moses built an altar and called its name, The–LORD–Is–My–Banner;

Ex. 17:11-13 And so it was, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses’ hands became heavy; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. So Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.



Psa. 7:17 I will praise the LORD according to His righteousness,
And will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.


Connected to the gathering of His people. God inhabits His tabernacle

1Sam. 1:3 This man went up from his city yearly to worship and sacrifice to the LORD of hosts in Shiloh. Also the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, the priests of the LORD, were there.

Is. 6:3 And one cried to another and said:
“Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts;
The whole earth is full of His glory!”


Ezek. 48:35 All the way around shall be eighteen thousand cubits; and the name of the city from that day shall be: THE LORD IS THERE.”

Jesus has been given a Name above every name in heaven and on earth. All of these covenant names from the Old Testament reveal a facet of the beauty provided for us in Christ. As you honor his Name in prayer, Christ will become precious to you and His promises will be realized in your life.
