“A full measure of the Word of God and prayer each day gives a healthy and powerful life.” ~Andrew Murray

“Prayer with great power must be rooted in God’s Word.” ~Elton Streyle

A Different Way to Begin a Prayer
This is a summary of comments made by J. Gordon Henry.
We should be conscious as Christians that there is only one access to God. You cannot come into the presence of God apart from Christ Himself. John 14:6 says “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, the life. No one comes to the Father except  through Me.'” (For context, read John 14:13-14, John 16:23-26).
“We customarily  attach ‘In Jesus’ Name’ at the end of our praying. I have learned that it is a blessing to come early in the Name of Jesus in praying. The Name of Jesus is the authority that opens the door into God’s presence gives us the right to be heard.”  ~J. Gordon Henry
Some different ways to start a prayer:
  • Heavenly Father, I approach You in Jesus’ Name to…
  • Father, I come to You through the name of Your Son Jesus to…..
An ending to the prayer might be:
  • Father, I thank You for the privilege to bring this prayer in Jesus’ Name
The team at Time With Our Creator encourages you to try starting your prayers in Jesus’ Name for a little while; you might be blessed by it like this couple in Elton’s church was:
“We both feel like it [praying in Jesus’ Name at the beginning of the prayer] has radically changed our prayer lives. “In Jesus’ Name” is no longer a casual ending to a prayer, but a powerful way to approach the throne, making it clear to communicate with the Father. It does not feel right to do it any other way now.” ~Brett and Lori

  1. Thank you for sharing this! What a refreshing way to start our prayer in the name of our Lord and Savior! Jesus promised “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” (John‬ ‭14:13-14‬ )

    Blessings! 🙏🏼🕊
