And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

Father God .
Oh the names mankind has given You
Trying to describe the indescribable Savior!
You, Mighty One
Called Yourself “I AM”
With gentle simplicity and all authority
You embraced and defined Yourself to us
Today, Father, we stand in the gap for
Your persecuted children around the world
Asking protection, according to Your will
Please give us boldness to speak when and where
You open doors for us to do so
Let us recognize opportunities and seize them enthusiastically
To let others know WHO YOU ARE
Please show Yourself to us in new ways
And light a passion inside each one
To know and share with others
Just how WONDERFUL our Savior is!
Oh, how we love Jesus!
In every glorifying Name He has ever been given, we pray,
