In Jesus' Name

matthew18_20prayertext.jpg


Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it (John 14:12—14).

The phrase, “in Jesus’ name,” is not an empty motto. It’s a declaration of truth!

Your cancer is not in charge, Jesus is.

The economy is not in charge, Jesus is.

The grumpy neighbor doesn’t run the world — Jesus, you do!

Jesus, you are the CEO, the President, the King, Supreme Ruler, and Absolute Monarch. You are the High and Holy Baron, the Czar, the Overlord, and Rajah of all history.

Just speak the word, “Jesus!”

And pray!

When you pray “in Jesus’ name,” God responds. And since God is good, prayer is good. Since you matter to God, your prayers matter in heaven. You are never without hope, my friend, because you are never without prayer.

And when you can’t find the words to say, pull this out of your pocket:

Father, you are good.
I need help. Heal me and forgive me.
They need help. Heal them and forgive them.
Thank you.
In Jesus’ name, amen.

A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy. In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete (John 16:21—24).
