Prayer is relationship with God. It is easier to have relationship with someone if you know his name. Christ, being God, can’t fit into just one name. Here is another name from Revelation 1:
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. -Revelation 1:8 KJV
Another one of Christ’s names: Which is, and which was, and which is to come.
That’s a long and descriptive name. God told Moses a version of this name in the book of Exodus: “I am that I am“ (Exodus 3:14).
He is the God who IS. There never was a time that He wasn’t. There will never be a time that He isn’t.
We, humans live in linear time. There was a time we weren’t here, we are here right now, but there will come a time we aren’t here (but we will be somewhere else eternally).
God, on the other hand, lives outside of time. He isn’t affected by time, but He can affect time. (Joshua 10 has a story about that).
Since God isn’t stuck in time, He can guide our footsteps. He knows where He is taking us.
As we talk to Christ, who is, who was, and who is to come, we can turn each day and all our future over to Him. He can handle it- He knows what He wants for us.
