Faith’s Checkbook

The Name to Use
If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it. (John 14:14)
What a wide promise! Anything! Whether large or small, all my needs are covered by that word
anything. Come, my soul, be free at the mercy seat, and hear thy Lord saying to thee, “Open thy
mouth wide, and I will fill it.”
What a wise promise! We are always to ask in the name of Jesus. While this encourages us, it also
honors Him. This is a constant plea. Occasionally every other plea is darkened, especially such as we
could draw from our own relation to God or our experience of His grace; but at such times the name
of Jesus is as mighty at the throne as ever, and we may plead it with full assurance.
What an instructive prayer! I may not ask for anything to which I cannot put Christ’s hand and seal. I
dare not use my Lord’s name to a selfish or willful petition. I may only use my Lord’s name for prayers
which He would Himself pray if He were in my case. It is a high privilege to be authorized to ask in the
name of Jesus as if Jesus Himself asked, but our love for Him will never allow us to set that name
where He would not have set it.
Am I asking for that which Jesus approves? Dare I put His seal on my prayer? Then I have that which
I seek the Father.
