How To Pray-Part 3

June 3, 2015

 

We are to pray to God the Father and we are to pray through God the Son.

John 14:13-14“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.”

Notice it says that if you ask in “My name.”  The name of His Son Jesus.

John 15:16You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.”

Notice that it says that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give you.

1 Corinthians 1:2“To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all who in every place call on the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:”

We pray to God the Father, we pray through the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. My friend, we must get this right if we are to pray rightly. Prayer is the most important work for the child of God. Only saved people can pray to God and have their prayers heard. The only prayer a lost person can pray that God will hear and respond to is the prayer for the need to be saved. What a privilege we have as God’s children to have access to His throne of grace through prayer!
