Praying the Names of God: The Ultimate FREE Guide

Praying the Names of God | The Ultimate How-To Guide for Praying God's Names Back to Him | by Jamie Rohrbaugh | FromHisPresence.com

Do you know what the names of God are, and how to pray the names of God? If not, this amazing prayer method is going to take your prayer life, your faith, and your intimacy with God to a whole new level.

In this blog post, I am providing you with a list of TONS of names of God in plain English, as well as teaching you how to pray the names of God. This post is not intended to dig into all the Hebrew names of God, although that is a powerful thing too. (Find more about the names of God in Hebrew here from the late Dr. Adrian Rogers, and here in Praying and Pronouncing the Names of God by Dr. Tony Evans.)

My purpose in this post is threefold:

  1. to show you as many of the names of God in everyday English as I can;
  2. to teach you how to mine the Scriptures for more names of God than the ones that immediately meet the eye when you read; and
  3. to teach you how to pray the names of God so you can apply the knowledge you gain about God to your everyday walk with Him.

 The specific topics I cover in this Ultimate Guide to Praying the Names of God are:

First, let me say that it’s not possible for any of us to know ALL the names of God. 

He is infinite, and therefore His names–which are the descriptions of who He is–are infinite. But, He has shown us who He is in the Person of Jesus, who is the exact imprint of God in fleshly form. His Word also contains the complete record of His self-revelation to us.

In the Bible, God has shown us a lot of His names by simply telling us what they are outright–names like “I am the Lord” or “I am God Almighty.” But when we read these verses in which God just outright tells us His name, that’s only one kind of name. Those are the self-revealed names of God … but there is a second kind of name also.

There are other names of God that we can deduce–or “see”–from reading about Him in the pages of His Word.

For example, in Hebrews 1:1-4, we read these words:

“God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;

who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they” (Hebrews 1:1-4).

Now, I’m going to list the passage again and bold all the phrases in which I see various names of God:

God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;

who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they” (Hebrews 1:1-4, emphasis mine).

If you look at the passage above, you see that the bolded words are all phrases that tell us who God IS.

In other words, they tell us the attributes of God the Father and of His Son Jesus Christ. For example, the passage above tells us that Jesus is Heir of all things. So, “Heir of all things” would be one of His names.

Here are just a few of God’s names that He shows us in Hebrews 1:

These are names you can see without His having to overtly tell us, “Hey! This is My name!” For example, this passage above shows us that Jesus is:

1) The Word become flesh
2) God’s message to mankind
3) Heir of all things
4) The Radiance of the glory of God
5) The Brightness of Father’s glory
6) The express Image of Father’s person
7) The exact Imprint of Father’s nature

And these are all among Jesus’ names.

These names all show us who He is, just the same way that He is:

  • Yeshua;
  • Messiah;
  • Bright and Morning Star;
  • the Holy One of Israel; and
  • the Lion of Judah.

The names like “Lion of Judah” and “Bright and Morning Star” are the names of God that most of us know, love, and hear from day to day. However, the other names, like “Exact Imprint of Father’s nature” and “Heir of all things” are just as much His names as those other, better-known ones are.

A name is simply a word that tells you who a person is.

SO, if you study as many of the names of God as you can, you can see who He is. And, the more of His names you study, the better you will know Him.

Conversely, if you study who He is, you can see His names. And the more you dig into His Word and mine out the gemstones that tell you WHO HE IS, the more of His names you will see!

Cool, huh?

Praying the Names of God | The Ultimate Guide | by Jamie Rohrbaugh | FromHisPresence.com

It works like math:

  • In math, if Thing #1 equals Thing #2, then Thing #2 also equals Thing #1. In other words, if A=B, then B=A. It’s universally accepted.
  • Just the same: A name of God equals who He is
  • So studying who He is brings us to the revelation of His name.

This means that we don’t have to limit ourselves to only studying the names of God that are overtly declared in the Bible.  We can also look at the names God shows us–not just the names He tells us.

Mining God’s Word, the Bible, for the gemstones of His names will take your Bible study, your worship, and your intimacy with God to a whole new level.

The Bible says:

“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings is to search out a matter” (Proverbs 25:2).

This means that God loves to place hidden gemstones in the treasure of His Word … and He does it specifically for us to find these gems. He plays hide-and-seek with us, but He never hides very far away and His revelation is not hard to find if we let His Spirit lead us into all truth.

So, if you begin to mine the Word of God for the hidden treasure of His names–both the names He tells us AND the names He shows us–it will be worth your while.

After you find the names of God in the Bible, then you can put them to use by praying the names of God back to Him.

Here’s how to pray the names of God:

Suppose you’re mining Psalm 18 for God’s names. I placed a long list of 95 names of God from Psalm 18 below, but four of my favorite names found therein are:

  • My Rock;
  • My Shield;
  • I am God who flies swiftly on the wings of the wind to rescue you.
  • I am God who sends out arrows and scatters them to do My bidding.

You see that some names of God are short and some are long.

The length of the name doesn’t matter, and you don’t have to try to specifically come up with short names versus long ones. As you’re studying, just take them as they come in the order in which you study them.

(In other words, we’re not sitting around trying to invent long names OR to cut long phrases off into short names. We’re just reading whatever it says about God from verse to verse, and noticing the names He shows us.)

The length of the name doesn’t matter. What matters is:

  • understanding the name;
  • applying the name in faith to see who God is in your situation;
  • thanking the Lord for being that and doing that for you (whatever attribute of His nature His name reveals); and
  • asking Him to manifest Himself in that way even more in your life.

So here are some examples showing how you could pray the four names of God I listed above as examples:

Name #1: My Rock:

“Father God, thank You for being My Rock. You are solid and stable and sure. You are the Rock beneath my feet; You are the Rock who is higher than I. I cling to You, Abba Father. Please keep me safe, stable, steady, and secure.

Father, my world is shaking around me, but I thank You that You never do. And with You as my Rock, I shall not be moved. Thank You, Abba Father. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

Name #2: My Shield:

“Father God, You are my Shield. Thank You, Abba Father, for shielding me from the storms. Thank You that You have always been there for me; You’ve always kept me safe and protected, and You always will. You alone are a Shield for me; my glory and the lifter of my head.

Help me now, Abba Father, and keep me safe. Help me to abide in You and stay under the shadow of Your wings, and You will keep me safe and protected. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

Name #3: I am God who flies swiftly on the wings of the wind to rescue you:

“Abba Father, You see that I am in trouble. But Lord, You are my rescuer. You are my shield and my safe place. You are the one I’m calling upon, for You will answer me and show me great and mighty things that I do not know.

Papa God, in Jesus’ name, I thank You that I can depend on You. And Lord, I ask You right now to fly swiftly to my rescue. Fly on the wings of the wind, Lord, faster than I could ever imagine, and help me now.

Your Word says that before I call, You will answer–so You have actually already answered me, that fast, Lord, and I thank You for it. Thank You for bringing me out of this situation safely and securely.

Father, please work everything out for my good, for Your Word says that you work ALL things out for good for those who love You and are called according to Your purpose. Thank You so much. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

Name #4: I am God who sends out arrows and scatters them to do My bidding:

“Abba Father, I come before You in Jesus’ name. Father, I want to intercede for my country right now.

Abba Father, Your Word says righteousness and justice are the foundations of Your throne. Your Word says that it’s by the blessing of the righteous that a city is exalted; how much more a country?

Father, we need Your help in my country right now. I ask, Abba Father, that You would send out Your arrows right now in this land and scatter them to do Your bidding:

  • Let the mighty arrows of Your Spirit’s conviction penetrate the heart of every person in government.
  • Let the mighty arrows of Your Word thunder from the mouths of Your people as we decree Your Word over our nation.
  • Let the mighty arrows of Your right hand do Your bidding in every way in our nation, Lord, to bring righteousness and justice to our land.

Father, we need Your help.

You are the one who moves the hearts of kings like water. So Father God, send forth Your arrows of every kind to do warfare on Your behalf, on behalf of Your Kingdom, and on behalf of us Your people.

I pray that You would arise and Your enemies would be scattered, O Lord, and that this nation would worship You once again. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.”

See? To pray the names of God, you just apply them in practical ways to whatever situation you’re praying about.

Holy Spirit will help you do this if you’ll ask Him to help you pray before you start praying. And once you get into it, you’ll see that these names of God are an absolute gold mine of revelation about God. Getting to know the Lord in all His names will show you His beauty more clearly than you ever could have seen it before, and you will stand in awe of Him in a whole new way.

So now I want to provide you with a list of names of God that you can use to get started with.

Praying the Names of God | The Ultimate How-To Guide for Praying God's Names Back to Him | by Jamie Rohrbaugh | FromHisPresence.com

This is not in any way a comprehensive list because God is infinite. As I stated at the very beginning of this page, we could never know all the names–and once we get started, we’ll be searching the Scriptures for the rest of our lives, looking for them.

However, as I have studied this, the Lord has shown me some of His pretty incredible names from His Word.

I will be occasionally updating this article as I continue studying the names of God, chapter by chapter and book by book.

For now, however, I am including twelve lists of the names of God for you below:

  • 30 names of God I found in Hebrews chapter 1;
  • 7 names of God from Psalm 14;
  • 95 names of God from Psalm 18;
  • 63 names of God I found in Revelation chapters 1 and 2; 
  • 36 names of God from Psalm 86;
  • 46 names of God I found in Psalm 91;
  • 36 names of God from Psalm 96;
  • 25 names of God from Psalm 76;
  • 24 names of God in Proverbs 15;
  • 5 names of God just to get you started in Proverbs 14 and 16;
  • 37 names of God from Isaiah 48;
  • one more list currently showing 62 of the better-known names of God from various books and chapters in the Bible.

Below that, I also included the one full-paragraph name that God told us when He revealed Himself to Moses in Exodus 34:6-7.

All together, these twelve lists + one paragraph include 467 names of God so far. I will continue adding more lists to this page, so bookmark this page so you can check back and use this page as a reference!

These lists of the names of God are only a beginning, but they are a great beginning and will show you how to both read outright AND deduce the names of God that the Lord shows us in the Scriptures.

So without further ado …

Here are 30 names of God from Hebrews 1:

My friend, the Bible is a treasure chest, and the names of God are one of the many kinds of treasures found therein.

As you read God’s Word, the Bible, don’t just read it casually. Instead, read it to dig for revelation about God the same way a gold miner digs for nuggets.

Ask the Spirit of God to show you each of His names. As He does, treat each name of God you find as a priceless treasure—a pearl of great price, a gemstone of inestimable worth:

  • Write the names down.
  • Meditate on each one.
  • Worship God over each one.
  • Pray through each one for yourself and for others.

Each name is a different aspect of God revealed, and each one will help you get to know Him in a whole new way.

Doing this will be worth your time. Mining God’s Word, the Bible, for as many different names of God as you can find will take your Bible study, your worship, and your relationship with Jesus to a whole new level. You will weep as you draw closer to Him, and you will whisper in awe of this One who knows you best and loves you most–and for how He has deigned to reveal Himself to you.

Does this prayer/study guide help you see how praying the names of God is a powerful tool in your spiritual walk with the Lord? If so, leave a note below and let me know! Also, please SHARE this with your friends so we can help more people together to pray powerful prayers and know God better.

Amazing Grace!! Hallelujah, Hallelujah hallelujah!!! Glory be to God! Prophetess Jamie, the Lord, even the Lord Jesus of Nazareth bless you!!

  6. Thank you so much Jamie

  7. Thank-you Jamie this is an honor to the Lord , who is worthy of all praise!

  8. Thanks so much Jamie. Our God is indeed awesome. God bless you.

    1. Hi Jamie,
      Thank you so much for this resource of connecting with God in a more intimate way through the use of His many names. I am going through a rough spot on all levels even spiritually and I am looking to reconnect with God on a deeper way. This guide is exactly what I need.

  9. After I read this and am trying g to be more aware of how a statement can be phrased to reveal another facet of who God is, I was singing the hymn Come thou Fount of Every Blessing, and realized that The Lord IS the fount of each and every blessing! I know that isn’t scripture but this post does open a new way of thinking and getting closer to God. Thank you for sharing this journey. I enjoy it.

  10. I am so grateful for this post! This was a breath of fresh air and yet eye opening as to how to study God more in-depth. I’ve been trying to wrap my head around who God is for years and I’d think I’d understand some only to find out I still didn’t know anything. And this has been going on for years!!! I now know how to search the scriptures the right way. I kept searching them to see where I needed change but never realized it’s not about searching to find us in scripture but searching to find Him. Thank you again for the message because it was the light and at the same time the rest I needed to end this day. Looking forward to more of what you learned and thankfully now looking forward to what I can learn so I can finally become who God has called me to be in Christ. Or at least as close to Christ-like I can be this side of eternity. Can’t wait for the day I can see my Jesus face to face and walk with Him and talk with Him and ask Him questions. First thing I want to give Him the biggest hug for saving this wretch. No one else could do that. No one!! Only Him. So grateful!! Have a wonderful night. God bless you!!
