Lord’s Library editors offer a quick background on the Almighty God Prayer with Scripture, examples, and commentary.
The King James Bible portrays Almighty God as a being of immense power, sovereignty, and wisdom. The term “Almighty” emphasizes his omnipotence, his ability to do all things, and his control over all things. This divine power is accompanied by omniscience, the ability to see and understand all things, as described in Job 37:16. God is also portrayed as the ruler of all things, with the power to control the course of history and the affairs of men, as emphasized in Psalm 103:19.
In addition to these attributes, the Bible emphasizes the holiness and perfection of God. The holiness of God is often described as being separate from and above all other things, such as in Isaiah 6:3, which describes how the angels in heaven cry out “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.” The perfection of God is emphasized in Matthew 5:48, where Jesus instructs his followers to “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”
In this light, Lord’s Library editors thought it would be helpful to compile the most popular versions of the Almighty God Prayer for the next time you want to begin a prayer with this salutation, below:
