Praying in the Name of Christ

“Jesus taught us, ‘Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name’ (John 16:24). To pray in Christ’s name is to take refuge in Him as God’s beloved Son — the One whom the Father delights to hear and to honor. Praying in Jesus’ name includes confessing who is truly God and Master in my life” (James W. Beeke and Joel R. Beeke, Developing a Healthy Prayer Life, 5).
