John 14:13-14 (NKJV)13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.
A young lady’s prayer went thus:
Lord, you know I am faithful in my tithes and offerings. You know I also give to the needy and I do not withhold what I have from the poor. Please provide for me this need and prove that you are a faithful God.
Somewhere in that same city, another young lady prayed thus:
Father, I ask that you provide this need for me. I ask not because I believe I deserve anything from you, but because I believe Christ has paid the price for me to receive from you.
The second lady got her answer because she asked in the Name of the Lord.
Even though the first lady ended her prayers by saying the words “in Jesus’ name”, she wasn’t really asking in the name of the Lord. The reason she believed God should answer her was because of her good works.
Good works are indeed powerful in the realm of the spirit and have been the reason for the visitation of God upon many people. Cornelius attracted heaven’s attention and the angel of God visited him because of his good works (see Acts 10:1-4). Your good works are powerful but they are not as powerful as your faith in Christ Jesus. Your record of good works may help you garner much-needed confidence in dealing with God as a son, but when it comes to receiving from God, let your faith be in the works of Christ alone. That is how to pray in Jesus’ name.
Go into today remembering to present the superior currency when making heavenly transactions. Faith in Christ is always superior.
Ask the Lord to help you always pray in His name.
