“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 14:13-14




Jesus said,

“I will do whatever you ask for in my name,

so that the Father’s glory will be shown through the Son.

If you ask me for anything in my name, I will do it.”


– John 14:13-14 (GNT)






Jesus Christ is our Divine Intercessor in Heaven;

therefore, He promises us that

whatever we ask for in His name, He will do.


Asking in Jesus’ Name – in our Saviour’s name –

means asking for what is conducive to our salvation,

or to the salvation of the person or persons we are praying for.


When we ask in faith, in Jesus’ Name,

we are appealing to the power of the Risen Christ,

believing that He is all-powerful and merciful because He is true God.

Therefore, when the Lord says "whatever you ask"

we must understand

that He is talking about that which is for the good of the asker.


When our Lord does not give what we ask for,

the reason is that it would not make for our salvation.


In faith and trust we therefore know and acknowledge that Jesus is our Saviour

both when He grants what we ask for

and when He refuses us.






Jesus, my Saviour, I need You so much, I ask for so much

– but Lord, Your will be done!
