“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
Wonderful Counselor. Redeemer. The Alpha and the Omega. Light of the World. Good Shepherd. King of Kings. Immanuel. I Am. These are just some examples of the names of Jesus.
When we pray, we ask for things in Jesus name. This is more than just repeating things we were taught to say. Those words have incredible meaning. They are reminders to us that we have a mediator, an advocate, who is there to answer our prayers and bring glory to the Father through them. It is in His name that we pray. It is because of His name that we can come boldly before the throne of God.
Revelation 3:21; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 1 John 2:1
Lord, may I always remember the many different roles You have in my life. Thank you that I can come boldly before the throne and have confidence in praying in your Holy name. Thank you for being my advocate, my counselor, my father, my friend and so much more. Amen.
