PRAYING IN THE NAME OF JESUS
Whenever we pray, it should always be in the name of Jesus. There is something about the name of Jesus! When we call on Him, power becomes available. When we pray in His name for His Will to be done, blessings overflow. There is nothing we cannot ask Him that He cannot do. He can heal, provide, forgive, and comfort. Prayerfully, you have experienced calling on His name in times of trouble. You have a frame of reference and you know that there is power in His name. The scripture reference for this devotion is found in John 14:14.
“Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!”
In this moving passage of scripture, Jesus speaks clearly about praying in the name of the Lord. He said you can ask for anything in my name and I will do it. He indicates that any who believes in Him will do greater works for He will be with the Father. In this text, He is about to depart to the Father and has given His disciples the power that they need to do the Father’s work and Will. Underline the word in my name. There is something about that name Jesus. It is incredible. It is powerful. Jesus says I am in the Father and the Father is in me. We have been given the opportunity to approach the Father through the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus is the way to the Father. Read this entire chapter. Prayerfully, it will give you the confidence and assurance that you need when you go to God in prayer.
