Tony Evans: praying the names of God

Standard

NAME OF GOD:
El Rai

Verse:

She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: ‘You are the God (El) who sees (Rai) me,’ for she said, ‘I have now seen the One who sees me.’ Genesis 16:13

Meaning:

God Seest Me.

Prayer: Adoration

El Rai this is one of your names which reveals your heart more than any other. As you saw Abraham on the mountaintop and witnessed his trust in you, you provided a ram as Jehovah Jireh. Likewise, as El Rai you see where I am, you respond. It is in your seeing that I am truly known. To be known by you – to not be forgotten – is one of my greatest needs and it is this name which comforts me greatly. I praise you because you are not a distant God who sits far off and does not commune with those you have made, but you see me. You care, you see, and you are there.

    • It’s so great to discover people in the Body who draw our hearts to see Christ clearer and open the veil a little wider between us and heaven! I was excited to discover Tony Evans too!
