In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name, he will give it to you.
Pray in His name. Nothing needs to be sophisticated to understand this. Some will object that it can be mechanical, something you say by habit. So what? Pray in Jesus’ name. Some will say that they are wiser than that. That the command to “pray in My name,” is really about having Christ in you, and you being in Him. Amen! It surely means that. If anyone pretends that using Jesus’ name is a shortcut or a magic word, then they are mistaken.
Pray in His name. Live in it, remind yourself, and always call out in Jesus’ name. It is simple, and it is good. Let us keep praying that our lives would be lived in Jesus’ name. How? In Jesus’ name. Amen.
