Praying In Jesus’ Name

Image

Shortly before His crucifixion, Jesus told His disciples to pray in his name – to make their petitions according to His will. By praying in this manner, “The Father will give you whatever you ask in My name.” [John 15:16]. There is power attached to praying in Jesus’ Name

We are afforded a privilege to approach God through prayer because of our relationship with Jesus. At our “moment” of salvation, we went from being “being foreigners and aliens to being children of God.” [Ephesians 2:19]. Now God hears our prayers because of the redemptive work of Jesus.

Praying in Jesus’ Name give us an immediate audience in God’s presence. This was reflected in the temple, when the veil that restricted us from the Holy of Holies, was torn from top to bottom [Mark 15:38] symbolizing access to God is now available to all who believe. Now, we have the right, the privilege, the honor to talk directly to God without human intercession.

Isn’t that awesome? God hears the lowly, heartfelt, maybe-not-so-eloquent prayers of even me….I am humbled every time at having such a privilege. Image

I encourage you you approach the throne of grace with BOLDNESS, to use the POWER you have in JESUS’ NAME to pray with CONFIDENCE knowing and believing that THE FATHER hears your prayers when you pray in HIS WILL and He will answer.
