Asking in God's Name

You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.  John 14:14 NIV

ask in God's nameWhile walking to my local library, I celebrated.

The morning was lovely and sunny. The fresh air and sunshine were free. My walking stick and I are a fun team as I walk in faith. I look for golden sunbeams, praying in Jesus’ name. At the library, I gazed at the nearby lake, appreciating such free pleasures.

When I arrived home, I observed my divinity hour. I picked up a good book, the Bible, and read this verse: You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

Reflecting, I decided to follow the Lord Jesus, smile, and thank people who crossed my path. A smile is a smile in any language, a simple act of kindness. We can share a golden day with Jesus. Believers can all pray to do tasks in His name. As each day begins, we can greet the morning with a grin. Asking to be kind in His name brings glory to God.

Reading the holy Scriptures, praying, and positively supporting our friends and family enhance spiritual growth. We can all choose to deepen our faith in our friend and Lord, Jesus. This means we can ask in His name to devote ourselves to each day, praying for God to be our fortress.  

We can ask in Jesus’ name to do our best for Him, and our best will get better. I decided also to pray that more people would learn to read and reflect on the Good Book, believing it would happen.

What are some things you could ask for in Jesus’ name?
