Gathered together in my Name

When Christians pray, we do so in the Name of Jesus.  It is a thought provoking idea.  Rather than gathering “at the church” or “at Starbucks”, we gather in or into the Name.  Name means reputation or character.  It is all that God has revealed about Himself to us–all that we know of Him.  To those who understand, it is such a reality that we can meet there!  And when we do, He comes too!  (Matthew 18:20).  This is very similar thinking to Proverbs 18:10, “The Name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous runs INTO it and is safe”.  Christian, today will you enter into the Name of the Lord? Will you surrender yourself to all that He has revealed Himself to be?   Will you remember that others in our city and around the world are doing the same?  Gathered in His Name, we find a new power for our prayers.
