Podcast #179: “There Is Power” by Lincoln Brewster

Praying in the Name of Jesus in John 14-16

“That’s the way we’ve always done it” has often caused the hair on the back of my neck to stand up. Not that tradition is bad, but understanding WHY we do things should be our motivating factor, not custom. I pray in Jesus’ name, but there is a Scriptural reason why. Lincoln Brewster’s song “There Is Power” reminds us of the power found in the name of Jesus.

Explore God’s Word with me as we discover the power truly found in Jesus’ name.

On this episode I discuss:

This Week’s Challenge

Read John 14-16 and consider the verses specifically speaking of asking for things in Jesus’ name…also known as praying! There is one more BITE I want to mention, and that is to PRAY! We have spoken a bit about prayer on this episode, but it would be a shame to add to our knowledge, but never put it to use. I don’t know about you, but I could benefit from praying more and more effectively.
