We may have earthly parents, but we can not do with the heavenly Father. We can not see Him (or we would die) and nobody has seen Him. Only His only begotten son Jesus can now sit next to Him. It is in that name of the son (Jeshua from Nazareth) that we can pray and ask things for ourselves and for others.
In the heavenly Father we can trust. He shall always be able to do much more than any earthly father. The Creator God His son Jesus has opened the doors and restored the relationship with the Divine Creator. We may be happy to have that Jewish man Jesus to be mediator now for us. Now we can face again, day after day, the Most High Creator and speak directly to Him as “Our Father“.
That we may use it regularly and take that galactic leap forward in our faith as well.

- Jesus Prays for Unity – John 17 (disciplesforlife.wordpress.com)
Jesus has mediated the glory of God, personally to his first followers and through them to those who believe on account of their message.
we ought to understand the call for holiness the same way we see Jesus petitioning the Father for perfect unity – eschatologically. We need to see these things as a comfort that since Jesus has prayed for it, therefore it will happen. So there is still an element of “not yet” here.
- In Jesus’ Name, Amen (isaiah532.wordpress.com)
If you are like me, you make sure you add the words, “in Jesus’ name, amen” at the end of every prayer. We know we are supposed to pray that way. That is how we have been taught. But I think somehow we have held some secret, perhaps not even fully thought out, idea that as long as we say our prayer is in Jesus’ name, then God will hear us and answer. Like just saying the name of Jesus is a magic key to opening the doors of Heaven.
if we keep praying in Jesus’ name, amen, and Jesus said that whatever we pray in His name He will do, why are so many of our prayers not answered the way we want them to be? Is Jesus’ name not the magic word after all? Or is there something more to it?
Just as Jesus, as the Son of God, was the ambassador, so to speak, of God the Father, here on earth, we are ambassadors for Jesus (2 Cor. 5:20). Jesus came in the name of the Father (John 5:43; 10:25). What Jesus spoke to us, we know to be the words, and will of the Father. John 5:19 – Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.”
So why is it that so often we find ourselves unsure of what Jesus’ will is? The very simple answer is that we have not taken the time to build our relationship with Him. How can we know what Jesus’ will is, if we don’t know who He is or anything about Him? How can our prayers be in sync with what He desires, if we don’t know what He likes and dislikes? There is more to knowing Jesus than believing that He is the Son of God and good.
- Broken and Beautiful (jamespaulgaard.wordpress.com)
I am inviting you to think with me about how we hide our brokenness, how our brokenness can be a good thing and how the beautiful Jesus became broken to make our brokenness beautiful.
We hide our brokenness because we do not want to get hurt. We also hide our brokenness because we think that our brokenness is ugly. If we could wave a magic wand and change one thing about ourselves, our chief area of brokenness is likely the thing that we would most want to change. And we hide our brokenness because we think that our brokenness is like a ball and chain that holds us back from living a beautiful life.
Because you are His bride, Jesus gives you wonderful gifts that make your beauty so radiant that it becomes apparent for others to see. Jesus heals your wounds with the healing salve of His unconditional love for you. Jesus crowns your head with the renewal of your mind. Jesus adorns your face with the joy of your salvation. Jesus dresses you in radiant garments of forgiveness, purity and righteousness. Your scars remain, but they make you even more attractive than you would otherwise be. With Jesus, you are both broken and beautiful. Amen.
- Meandering Intensely Through Grace (brokenbelievers.com)
The heavenly Father’s exclusive purpose is to “bring many sons to glory.” We do not have to wait until heaven to become like Jesus. We can accelerate the joy by starting today. As soon as we work out the details, He will commence with His work within. And when He comes, He will ‘clean house,’ (so to speak). But that can’t be all bad.
- I Shall Not Be Greatly Shaken (fallanddie.com)
He’s telling us that a true disciple of Jesus pours out his life into that which is most dear to him. That in importance, nothing competes with God; nothing rises to the level of importance in our heart and mind near that of God. As compared to one’s relationship with Jesus, our earthly relationships are to be so far removed in importance from the Divine relationship that difficulties shall not greatly shake us in our devotion and obedience to the Lord.
- Morning Prayer 6.1.14, Seventh Sunday of Easter (dailyoffice.org)
O God, you make us glad with the weekly remembrance of the glorious resurrection of your Son our Lord: Give us this day such blessing through our worship of you, that the week to come may be spent in your favor; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
- Morning Prayer 5.31.14, The Visitation of Mary (dailyoffice.org)
Christ was faithful over God’s house as a son, and we are his house if we hold firm the confidence and the pride that belong to hope.
- Morning Prayer 6.2.14, Blandina & Her Companions, the Martyrs of Lyons, 177 (dailyoffice.org)
Christ our Passover has been sacrificed for us; *
therefore let us keep the feast,
Not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, *
but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Alleluia.
There are so many things I don’t know
There are so many faults I have…
There are times I loose my calm.
Yet you always caress me as a child.
I make mistakes but you always take care.
You are my armor and my light.
Arms that hold me at my weakest are yours.
when everyone else annoys me ,I annoy you,
Often questioning and demanding proof.
Dear God, my father, my closest friend
always be with me.For it is only you I seek
You are my journey and destination
So often I whisper Help me !
Rarely I say Thank you….
But I know you are aware-
your voice in my heart is
the secret assurance that….
You listen to my thoughts
In quietness you are my confidence
In the commotion you are my confidant
A galactic leap forward away from desires
to embrace you and unlock the doors…
