Jesus said, “I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father” (John 14:13). How should those words affect our prayer? Tony Marshall Anderson addressed that question in Prayer Availeth Much:
Jesus revealed His purpose in answering prayer when He said, “…that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” In order to achieve His exalted purpose to glorify the father, the son has bestowed on His redeemed people the inalienable right to ask anything in His Name. In the clear light of this remarkable truth…the possibilities in prayer are as great as the purpose of the Son of God.
Pray daily that the Father might further be glorified in the Son through your life, too.
P.R.A.Y. for Today
Praise and thank God for allowing you to be His partner in ministry in this world;
Repent of any failure to step out boldly in ministry, empowered by Him;
Ask that the father may be glorified in the Son through your ministry;
Yield to Him by expanding your outreach at this time, in dependence upon Him.
