Why Pray “In Jesus’ Name”?

John Ankerberg
By R.L. Wilson: John 14:13a says, “You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it.” Are we suppose to pray in Jesus Name?

Seems like a pretty clear blank check, doesn’t it? I mean, what could be more clear—you ask, end your prayer with the words “in Jesus’ name, amen,” and sit back and expect to get whatever you asked for, right?

Well, not exactly! First, we need to add the rest of the verse. John 14:13 continues by saying, “so that the Son can bring glory to the Father.”

So, condition one, what God will grant when we pray is whatever will bring glory to the Father. How many of your prayers will bring glory to God if they are answered? Ouch.
