Praying Through the Names of GodPraying Through the Names of God by Tony Evans includes 85 names of God found in Scripture.The book is based on the ACTS method of prayer: Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving and Supplication. As you pray God’s names, you learn the power of His name and how to apply it to your own life. Here’s an example:
