Because of His Name

God will do so many things BECAUSE of His name. He protects His name, His reputation, His character, and He will keep His promises BECAUSE of His name. That includes: “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it” (John 14:14). There are so many other things, too, but I wanted to point out the reason we pray in Jesus’ name: because of what God will do in His name, and because we were told to do so by Jesus in John 14:14.

Sometimes we say, “In Jesus’ name I pray,” out of habit, and it is a good habit, one in obedience to Jesus Himself, but let this be a faith-builder in your prayer time today for your prodigal. Pray for him/her in Jesus’ name, knowing that God will answer because of His name and who He is. He WILL answer!

Believing for them all,


Promise: Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; But we will remember the name of the Lord our God.” (Psalm 20:7)

Praise: “The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe” (Proverbs 18:10).

Prayer: Our Father, help __________, “O God of [his/her] salvation, For the glory of Your name; And deliver [him/her] . . . For Your name’s sake!” (Psalm 79:9). I pray this in Jesus’ name.
