How we pray matters
Many Christians call on the saints in heaven to pray for them, yet Jesus never explicitly said that that’s what we should do when in need. We don’t need others to pray for us since God loves us regardless. It is a falsehood to believe that even Jesus is praying to God on our behalf. This is a wrong assumption and a misreading of the scripture.
“At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: For the Father himself loveth you…” (John 16:26-27)
In His name
The Lord is the one that taught us how to pray. We must pray in His name and not through it His name. There’s a difference between the two. To pray through His Name is to make Him a medium. To pray in His Name is to exercise the power of attorney He’s given us. The next time you hear someone pray and conclude with, “…through Jesus Christ, our Lord,” let the person know he hasn’t prayed yet, because that prayer isn’t going to be answered.
You may think “but I’ve been praying that way and getting results”. Yet you’re unaware that you’re still at a preliminary stage of spirituality. God is waiting for you to level up and grow into a more meaningful spirit.
“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent” (Acts 17:30)
“And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils” (Mark 16:17)
He didn’t say “through my Name.” To pray in His Name is to assume His authority, His glory and His person.
When you ask the Father anything or make a demand in the Name of Jesus, it’s as though Jesus Himself were asking. We live in His Name.
