Praying in Jesus' Name
Read | John 16:19-33

Shortly before the crucifixion, Jesus told His followers to pray in His name—in other words, to make requests according to His will.

He pointed out that power is attached to prayer offered this way: "The Father will give you whatever you ask in My name" (John 15:16 niv). Supplication in Christ's name means we're declaring our . . .

• Association with the Savior.

What makes it possible for us to approach God through prayer is our relationship with Jesus. At salvation, we went from being foreigners and aliens to being children of God.

(Eph. 2:19) Our Creator has become our heavenly Father. He hears our requests because we have been made family through the redemptive work of His Son. The presence of Christ's Spirit within us proves we are one of His own.

• Access to the Father.

Jesus' death opened the way for us to have immediate, unhindered admittance to the Father's presence.

When Jesus finished His work in making the final priestly sacrifice (Heb. 7:28), the veil in the temple, which closed off the Holy of Holies from man, was torn in two. (Mark 15:38)

This symbolized the spiritual truth that access to God was now open to all who believe. Through the Holy Spirit, we have the right to talk to God directly without a human intermediary (Eph. 2:18).

Jesus Christ fully paid the penalty for our sins by dying on the cross.

Accepting His atoning death on our behalf means we are in a new family relationship and we have unhindered access to the Father.

Let's stop right now and give thanks to God for the incredible privilege of prayer!
