[Yes] I will grant [I Myself will do for you] whatever you shall ask in My Name [as presenting all that I Am].—John 14:14
Some Christians read this passage and take its meaning out of context. What a statement! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if this gave you license to have anything and everything you want? But the name of Jesus is not simply a “magic word” to tack on at the end of your wish list.
You must realize that all effective prayer involves praying the will of God, not the will of man. There are many things in the Word that clearly reveal God’s will, and these you may certainly ask for boldly without any hesitation or concern about whether you should have them. Yet there are many other things you need to pray about without knowing the exact will of God in the situation. It is at these times you should pray that His perfect will be done and not your own.
