O, Jesus, what a beautiful name in which to believe. What a powerful and purposeful existence you grant for the faithful. What marvelous assurance you give in truth of salvation. Remind us again that you hear the prayers of the believers. May we live confidently, knowing you hear us and answer when we pray in a way that glorifies the will of the Father. I thank you and pray in your precious name and powerful authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father.

“I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life. And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.” (1 John 5:13-15 ESV)
