In the name of Jesus.

I was sharing with our young adults group last night that when we pray in Jesus name, we are not adding the name of Jesus to the prayer as if its some kind of lucky talisman.

Rather, the terminology is one of a king sending an emissary to another to make a request – when that person reads out the message, they are at that moment as if they were the king themselves. When we pray in Jesus name, we are standing before God, making a request of him, as if we were Jesus himself.
