The call to pray “in Jesus’ name” was not a call to tack 3 words on the end of our prayers. It was a call to pray in a way that matches His heart.
If you love someone and buy something in their name, it’s something that person would love. Likewise when we pray in Jesus’ name, we pray in line with the things He loves—the Father, humanity, and the Kingdom.
