Declaring the Name of Jesus

Jesus’ name should be more than a formula at the end of a prayer. It should be a realization that when we say, “In Jesus’ name!” we are speaking with the full authority of the King, who gave us His authority. It’s not a phrase. It’s not magic words. It’s a statement that we’re moving in His dominion and His authority. We’re doing this in the name of the King!

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

“You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and light will shine on your ways.” (Job 22:28; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Have you been asking with wavering faith, hoping that using the name of Jesus will get your request granted? It’s okay. You can repent.

  2. Intercede for the Body of Christ to fully know the authority we have to use the name of Jesus when we pray.

  3. Know that He is ready to answer your faith-filled requests at the sound of His name—Jesus!

  4. Make a series of faith-statements or requests of Him right now using the beautiful name of Jesus.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, forgive me for hoping You are hearing my prayers when I pray in the name of Jesus. Those are not magic words. Your name is that name above every name that You say I can rely on when I ask for anything. I can be assured that You are hearing me and You will act in accordance with Your Word and plan. Forgive any doubt and unbelief I have been walking in. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, what a beautiful name! Mantle me with faith as I make declarations and decrees as You lead me to now. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that using the name of Jesus will assure our Kingdom victories!
