Praying in Jesus' Name

John 16:23-24 "At that time you won't need to ask me for anything. The truth is, you can go directly to the Father and ask him, and he will grant your request because you use my name. You haven't done this before. Ask, using my name, and you will receive, and you will have abundant joy."

We can go directly to our Heavenly Father and ask Him anything. We do not need anyone to do it for us. We have equal right and access to God as anyone else on earth does. God has an open door policy and the welcome mat is always out.

Jesus did away with all that kept us from going directly to our Father. He made us righteous through His shed blood at Calvary and all who let Him into their heart are able to approach God with confidence and boldness. God answers the prayers of the righteous.

When we pray in the name of Jesus, things begin to happen. The name of Jesus is the most powerful name in all of creation. He is the King of kings and Lord of lords. Before Him every knee shall bow in heaven and on earth. He holds the key to life and death. He created all things and all things were created for Him. He is the indwelling fullness of God. He is the only way to God. He is absolute truth, righteousness and holiness. He is the only source of eternal life and without Him the soul faces a godless eternity in hell.

When we submit to Jesus and obey Him, God answers prayer. He works all things out for our good according to His will for us. He gives us much joy and peace as we pray and trust Him with our needs. In Jesus' name bow before our Father in heaven, wait before Him, and pray. He will take care of you and supply your every need. You have His word on it.
