PRAY 5/20/20



“Throughout the Bible, the name of the Lord is synonymous with the nature of the Lord. To call on his name is to make an appeal to his character. It’s a cry for help….When People begin to call on the name of the Lord, they are ‘calling on God to come through on his promise’ of a son who will reverse the curse and defeat the serpent.”

                                                                                  – John Onwuchekwa


“Seth also had a son, and he named him Enosh. At that time people began to call upon the name of the LORD.” (Genesis 4:26)
