In the Name of Jesus, I Pray

November 9, 2017


Names are powerful! The words we speak can impact another’s life in ways we may never know. I strive to speak encouragement to those around me, building them up with biblical truth and the expression of God’s love. I may not always succeed, especially when I try to walk in my own weakness rather than in God’s strength.


As I searched for suitable pseudonyms to protect the identities of the women at the safe house in Nepal, I was careful to consider the meaning of each of the names I selected. When I pray for each woman, I want them to know they are loved and valued, precious daughters of the King of Heaven.


For example, when I pray for Aanchal (which means protective shelter), I pray that she will know protective shelter, that God would restore her emotions, and that she would be secure in the knowledge of His great love for her.


When I pray for Jayati (which means victorious), I pray that she will be victorious. Even though she has returned to the red-light district, not believing that someone could love her beyond all others, I pray that God’s love would return to her again and again.


I pray that each of these women will be affirmed as a cherished creation of God, knowing that they are loved deeply by Him.


And I am so thankful for the women who are investing their lives in teaching these rescued souls, for Ranjana (delightful), Nandu (happiness), Amir (princess), and Sangita (musical). It is not a coincidence that the Lord brought these beautiful women to care for those who have not known love, that their names tell the story of the joy they bring to others.
