Good Friday morning healing team!
I hope you had a great short week.
John 16:23-24 Jesus said
“…I tell you the truth, you will ask the Father directly, and he will grant your request because you use my name. 24 You haven’t done this before. Ask, using my name, and you will receive, and you will have abundant joy.
When I pray, I learned to pray directly to the Father in heaven using in Jesus name. This is something I learned from others and sermons from pastors. Pray to Him and I will receive. The common understanding of prayers.
However, next three verses are awesome.
John 16:26-28 Jesus said
26. “Then you will ask in my name. I’m not saying I will ask the Father on your behalf, 27. for the Father himself loves you dearly because you love me and believe that I came from God. 28 Yes, I came from the Father into the world, and now I will leave the world and return to the Father.”
Every single time you pray to the Father in Jesus name, you are acknowledging the truth about verse 27 that God loves you dearly, because you love Jesus, and you believe that Jesus came from the Father into this world to give us a free gift of salvation and resurrected on the third day.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Every time you pray to the Father in Jesus name, you are acknowledging His love for us. The reason God sent Jesus for us, and sacrificed Jesus for us. And the most importantly, you are acknowledging Him that you believe it!
Have a great weekend!
