What it Means to "Pray in Jesus' Name"


Praying in Jesus Name, Jesus Name not a magic word
It's important we understand that praying "in Jesus' Name" doesn't mean our prayers are only answered if we use certain words (Matthew 6:7-8).

Prayer is about communicating with God, not about superstitious word choice.

To pray in Jesus' Name means:

1. We pray "in Christ."
We pray as believers in His Name, depending on His strength and power.
Romans 8:26-27

2. We pray in line with His commands.
God doesn't answer prayers for sinful or selfish motives.
James 4:3

3. We pray for Jesus' will and purposes, not our own.
We should strive to do all things in Jesus' Name.
1 John 5:14

"In Jesus' Name" is not a magic phrase.
  • It's an attitude of respect and awe for Jesus. 
  • It's a statement that we are His child. 
  • It's a desire to see His will done.
Whether we speak the words or not, we can pray and live in Jesus' Name (Colossians 3:17).
