A Declaration of Truth - December 30, 2016

As our high priest, Jesus offers our prayers to God. His prayers are always heard. John 16:23 says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask the Father for anything in My name, He will give it to you.”

The phrase,“In Jesus’ name,” is not an empty motto or talisman. It is a declaration of truth! Cancer is not in charge, Jesus is. The grumpy neighbor doesn’t rule the world— Jesus, you do! Just speak the word, Jesus!  Since God works, prayer works. Since you matter to God, your prayers matter in heaven. And on the occasions you can’t find the words to say, pull out this pocket prayer:

Father, you are good. I need help. Heal me and forgive me.
They need help. Thank you.
In Jesus’ name, amen!

From Before Amen
