“In that day you will ask in My Name.” (John 16:26) Jesus could see the future. As He neared the cross and the end of His earthly life, He could see clearly the day that would come as a result. (BTW, tonight at Time for Teaching, we will talk about the future that Jesus saw) Prayer was a part of His future vision. Powerful prayer. Persistent prayer. A spiritual church awake and aware of a new power–to ask in His Name, to accomplish things that would otherwise be impossible. Like a bride with a new name and a new authority for acting in the community, Jesus could see the church serving in the world with confident power! Friends, we are living in this moment! Let us learn to use the privilege that Jesus purchased for us! Lord, teach us to pray. Teach us to pray in your name.
