PRAYING YHWH’S NAME(S) Some of us know that the Scripture tells us in many places that if we call upon His

Name, He will hear us and will answer us; or all who seek my Name...things like that. There are man "names" by which He is known throughout the Bible/Torah/Tanakh, starting in Genesis through to Revelation. They are not all introduced and given in the opening chapters of Genesis; if you study this aspect of the Torah, you will see the "Names" by which He becomes known, are "Names" befitting a charactertic or quality of the makeup of Who He is in Totality. For this post I will simply list those "Names" in their Hebrew with the equated English translation. Perhaps it will give someone something to meditate upon.....They are listed in the order as they are revealed in the Torah, starting with Genesis. Elohim - G-d, Mighty Creator El Roi - The G-d Who Sees Me El Shadday(Shaddai) - G-d Almighty (one of my favourites and possibly because of a modern day Christian song - and by the way there is also Judaic song using it as well) El Olam - The Everlasting G-d or The Eternal G-d Yahweh Yireh - The L-rd Will Provide Yahweh - L-rd Adonay (Adonai) - L-rd, Master Yahweh Rophe - The L-rd Who Heals Yahweh Nissi - The L-rd My Banner Esh Oklah, El Kanna - Consuming Fire, Jealous G-d Qedosh Yisrael - Holy One of Israel Yahweh Shalom - The L-rd is Peace (O boy, do I need this one; I should perhaps take own advice and cry unto Yahweh Shalom...in the midst of life's storms and challenges; not just "pray" for "shalom/peace" but use His Name Yahweh Shalom) Yahweh Tsebaoth -The L-rd of Hosts Yahweh Tsuri - The L-rd is My rock Yahweh Roi - The L-rd is My Shepherd Hashem - The Name Melek - King Ish - Husband El Chay - Living G-d Maon, Machseh, Magen, Metsuda, Migdal-Oz - Dwelling Place, Refuge, Shield, Fortress, Strong Tower Shophet - Judge Miqweh Yisrael - Hope of Israel Yahweh Tsidqenu - The L-rd Our Righteousness El Elyon - God Most High Yahweh Shammah - The Lord is There (I am also told that the name Shammah which by the way, you'll see is my handle and was the one word I spoke when baptized...but didn't find out the meaning until 2 years later!!! - is the name of the New Jerusalem....pretty awesome...)

Some things to think about and perhaps start using when we are praying unto Him to answer a question or meet a need. Abba.. really think about the Name that He is known by that fits that situation... Pater .Ab.. and use that specific name! Shalom from Shammah..Father So.Thank You Yahweh!! Page 2 of 2 .
