We Pray to the Father in Jesus’ Name


In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world(John 16:33). Jesus has opened the way to the Father so that whatever you ask of the Father in Jesus’ name, he will give it to you (John 16:23). We pray, therefore, in the confidence that we will be heard and answered, that our joy may be full (John 16:24). We pray because the Gospel has been preached to us and the Lord has opened our hearts to believe the Gospel (Acts 16:10, 14). We pray in the name of Jesus because we have been baptized into Him, as Lydia and her household were baptized (Acts 16:15). We have been healed, and we live and walk and pray in newness of life (John 5:8–9). For we stand upon the firm foundation of the twelve apostles of the Lamb(Rev. 21:14), and our temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb(Rev. 21:22).
