Praying to Elohim, Our Creator

Heavenly Father, over the generations many names have been given to represent the different aspects of who You are. I am praying to You, Elohim, my creator. I praise You for being my creator and for giving me a reason to exist.

Holy Spirit Your word says: “In the beginning, God [Elohim] created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the water.” “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.” [Genesis 1:1&2, Jeremiah 29:11-13]

I know that I was created for a reason. I also know, from Psalms 139, how You formed me and created me to desire a relationship with You. I also know, from Paul in Romans 12, that in order to figure out what the purpose of my life is each day I walk this earth, I have to become a living sacrifice and renew my mind with prayer, studying Your word, listening to Your Spirit and living a life that is pleasing to You. Help me to whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Philippians 4:8

For this reason, I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches, he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21
