A Name Guarantee !!!!!!

A Name Guarantee !!!!!!

And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son, (John 14:13)

It is not every believer who has yet learned to pray in Christ’s name. To ask not only for His sake, but in His name, as authorized by Him, is a high order of prayer. We would not dare to ask for some things in that blessed name, for it would be a wretched profanation of it; but when the petition is so clearly right that we dare set the name of Jesus to it, then it must be granted.

Prayer is all the more sure to succeed because it is for the Father’s glory through the Son. It glorifies His truth, His faithfulness, His power, His grace, The granting of prayer, when offered in the name of Jesus, reveals the Father’s love to Him, and the honor which He has put upon Him. The glory of Jesus and of the Father are so wrapped up together that the grace which magnifies the one magnifies the other. The channel is made famous through the fullness of the fountain, and the fountain is honored through the channel by which it flows. If the answering of our prayers would dishonor our Lord, we would not pray; but since in this thing He is glorified, we will pray without ceasing in that dear name in which God and His people have a fellowship of delight.

C.H. Spurgeon, Faith’s Checkbook

    After been abandoned by a husband and left with 4 children all under 10 years old i did a lot of praying about day to day things, such as ‘please let there be enough money to buy the things i need at the store, or please let there be enough food to go round the extra children who have just appeared for tea’ and you know there was always was enough. And with grateful hearts we pray and give thanks. But after teaching Sunday school for 20 years i have come to realise that not everyone understands that we can pray about anything – at all!

      You have been blessed by God and are thankful to Him. Many don’t ever pray maybe because they aren’t thankful, or are too proud. These are the main 2 reasons for not praying.

        I am not sure why people do not pray, all i can surmise is that the world is telling them that it’s no longer important?!
