Gateway Devo




    If you’ve spent any time praying in your
    life, you’ve probably ended your prayers
    with the phrase, “In Jesus’ name.” Most
    of us say this out of habit without really
    thinking about what that means or why
    we close our prayers that way. The
    most common reason we end prayers
    in Jesus’ name is because He told us
    to pray in His authority (John 14:12–14).
    But ending prayers with the name of
    Jesus is also appropriate for another
    reason—since He is our ultimate example
    of what real prayer looks like, it’s only
    fitting that a prayer that stems from
    His example should end in His name.
    Over the next 28 days, we’re going
    on a journey together into prayer.
    We’ll explore its many dynamics: what
    the Bible says about it, why we so
    desperately need it, how we can use it,
    how it brings us closer to the Father and
    many other principles. Each day begins
    with a passage of scripture, followed
    by an inspiring devotional thought and
    ends with practical tips and a prayer
    to help you activate the devotional’s
    subject in your own prayer life.
    As you go through this devotional,
    our prayer is that you’ll grow to
    understand that prayer is one of the
    most crucial elements to walking
    in an intimate relationship with our
    heavenly Father. We have a great
    adventure ahead of us, and we pray
    you’ll become closer to God than you
    ever thought possible as you discover
    how to live a powerful life of prayer.
    —In Jesus’ name, Amen.
