Name above all names

Jesus is the name above all other names – King of kings & Lord of lords.
He has the only name under heaven by which mankind may be saved.
It is in His name that heaven comes to earth & sighs & wonders flow through His people.
It is also the name by which we know answered prayer.
Jesus is the name & person who gives us free access to the Father.


“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also;
and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. John 14:12-14


Jesus promises His disciples that if they pray in His name, He will answer them.
Jesus has made a way for God to hear & answer our prayers.
It is not a magic formula or a golden ticket for a never-ending wish list.
The prayerful request must come from a believing heart.
It must also come from a heart that is seeking to glorify God.
Finally, it must come from a humble & trusting heart.

The prayer that is always answered is prayer that seeks God’s will & kingdom upon this earth (Matthew 6:10).
A heart submitted to scripture & surrendered to the Holy Spirit crying out for heaven to come to this earth.
Jesus is the sole mediator between humanity & God & that is why we pray in His name (1 Timothy 2:5).
He is ever praying for us in God’s presence in Heaven (Romans 8:34; Hebrews 7:25). 24/7/365 eternally – Hallelujah!!
He prayers through us through His Holy Spirit (Romans 8:26). Often through deep groans from the depths of our being.
For us & through us according to the will of God. So good.
Jesus is the person & the name through which prayer passes back & forth between us & God.

Jesus is the name through which we know answered prayer.
He is our mediator, our advocate in heaven, our mighty champion & Saviour.
Prayer in His name is powerful & effective. Keep lifting prayer in Jesus mighty name.
Pray to Him & pray through Him, heartened & encouraged because He is always praying for you!


For Reflection

  • What am I lifting to the Lord in prayer right now in Jesus name?
  • Share a testimony of how God has answered your prayers.
  • Meditate upon answered prayer in Jesus name.

A song related to this theme:


Prayer

Heavenly Father,
Thank you that You answer prayer made in Jesus name.
Jesus thank you that You ever intercede for me,
Pleading my cause in the Father’s presence.
Holy Spirit keep my heart humble, trusting & full of faith as I pray,
Take me deeper in prayer O Lord.
This I ask In Jesus mighty Name.
Amen
