Praying in Jesus Name is so dynamic! It never fails! The Bible establishes that we do not pray to Jesus but we pray to the Father in Jesus name. The name of Jesus wins the attention of God anytime and every time, that is the divine order! Now, Jesus Himself said in John 16:23-24;
“And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will GIVE you.”Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.”
Notice that I chose to capitalize the word ‘GIVE’ in that Bible passage. It is because it has a very remarkable meaning in the original text. The word translated as give in that sentence above is the Greek word ‘didomee’ which means ‘to manufacture’ or ‘bring forth into existence’. This means that whatever we ask the Father in Jesus’ name shall be manufactured for us immediately! The Father is ready to bring forth anything for His children who ask Him in Jesus’ name. Jesus was so sure that we can have whatever we ask the Father, provided we do so in His name. The only condition He gave us in this kind of prayer is to do so in His name. We do not need any extra effort when we ask in His name because all the condition for receiving is already fulfilled in that wonderful name, even your required faith is already present in that name.
The name of Jesus is so complete; He has been granted the most excellent name in existence (Phil. 2:9). The power and benefits of praying in Jesus name is immeasurable! What are you still waiting for? Is it that you don’t know what you can demand as a daughter or son from your Father? Well, thank God Jesus answered that question; He said WHATEVER you ask which means anything at all. Your heavenly Father doesn’t run an earthly economy; He can never be broke from giving. So, demand anything and He still remains the same because He operates an infinite economy. If you don’t limit God, then you’re limitless!
All things are available and all things are achievable because all things are yours (1Cor. 3:21-22). Start making demands from the resources of God in the name of Jesus and your heavenly Father has positioned His angels to manufacture them for you directly on demand! However, failure to forgive those who have wronged you or settle with those you have wronged may hinder your prayers, so settle that and you’re cleared. “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him so that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses” (Mark 11:25-26 NKJV). There is authority over demons, healing power, dominion over sickness, sin and death, supernatural provision, opportunities and all the good things you can ever imagine in the name of Jesus!
