In Jesus’ Name

And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. (John 14:13 NIV)

Jesus’ name is so powerful. The Bible tells us:

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).

“Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth” (Philippians 2:9-10).

Jesus’ name is worthy of worship, has the power to save, heal, protect, rebuke the devil and do many other wonderful things that carry forward the work that Jesus did, and Jesus encourages us to use it. However, His name isn’t a magic formula that gives us whatever we want. Ask yourself, is my prayer the kind that Jesus Himself would answer? Is it in accordance with all that the person who bears the name is? Then you will know whether or not your prayer has been answered.

Ask in Jesus’ name and expect God to answer.
