    OUR BOLDNESS IN PRAYER


    OUR BOLDNESS IN PRAYER
    According to the eternal purpose which 
    he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: In 
    whom we have boldness and access with 
    confidence by the faith of him 
    (Ephesians 3:11-12).
    s a t u r d a y 23
    Some  people  marvel  at  us  sometimes  when 
    we  pray,  wondering  why  we  could  be  so 
    audacious  and  confident.  The  reason  we  pray  with 
    such  authority  and  audacity  of  faith  is  that  we  pray 
    in  the  Name  of  Jesus.  In  John  14:13,  Jesus  said, “...
    whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, 
    that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” 
    The key is asking in His Name; living in the authority 
    of His Name. Many, lacking this understanding pray 
    “through” Jesus, instead of praying “in” the Name of 
    Jesus.  There’s  a  great  difference  between  the  two. 
    When you pray in the Name of Jesus, you’re exercising 
    the full legal powers He gave you to act in His stead. 
    But to pray through Him is to make Him a medium, 
    which isn’t required now that you’re in Him. 
    When you understand and have the consciousness, 
    of the power and import of the Name of Jesus, and 
    what it represents, you won’t have to try to “squeeze” 
    up faith when you need it. When you pray or make 
    demands  in  His  Name,  it’s  as  though  Jesus  Himself 
    were speaking; everything responds to you the same 
    way they would respond to Jesus. The angels, demon 
    spirits, and all of nature respond to you as though they 
    were hearing directly from Jesus. 
    In Matthew 17:5, the Father spoke from heaven: 
    “…This  is  my  beloved  Son,  in  whom  I  am  well 
    pleased; hear ye him.”  He was telling all of creation, 
    all  of  nature — animate  and  inanimate—to  hear  and 
    obey Jesus. So, when Jesus said to ask anything in His 
    Name and it’d happen, it was against this backdrop. 
    He  meant  that  His  power  would  be  behind  our 
    demands, prayers, requests, and instructions, to bring 
    them to pass. This is the reason for our boldness and 
    confidence in prayer.
    PRAYER
    Dear  Father,  I  thank  you  for  I  have  boldness  and 
    access with confidence by the faith of Jesus Christ. 
    And in His Name, I lay hold of my inheritance. The 
    whole world is mine, because I’m a joint-heir with 
    Christ. All of nature responds to me, blessed be God. 
    Amen.
