Pray in Jesus' Name


Are your prayers incomplete, ineffective, or sterile? Prayers in Jesus' name will make your joy complete!

Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. – JOHN 16:23

At times, I find myself praying incomplete and ineffective prayers. Instead of praying in Jesus’s name, I drift into praying in my name, or in the name of a cause or a church.

My prayers become sterile when the spirit of my speech is self-directed, not Spirit-led.

In the moments preceding His passion, Jesus had the disciples’ undivided attention. So He took time to remind them how to pray powerful prayers in His name.

To pray in Jesus’s name is to pray as a representative of the person of Christ. Pray peace because Jesus represented peace. Pray love because Jesus represented love. Pray meekness because Jesus represented meekness. Pray forgiveness because Jesus represented forgiveness.

Prayers in Jesus’s name are aligned with His heart. Prayers that are consistent with God’s will further God’s will.

Above all, you focus on God’s fame when you pray in Jesus’s name. Prayers in His name make your joy complete!
