If Ye Shall Ask Anything In My Name

Written by: John Sernaque

Call to Worship


John 14:12-14

14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do [it].


The Desire of Ages, 668

The Lord is disappointed when His people place a low estimate upon themselves. He desires His chosen heritage to value themselves according to the price He has placed upon them. God wanted them, else He would not have sent His Son on such an expensive errand to redeem them. He has a use for them, and He is well pleased when they make the very highest demands upon Him, that they may glorify His name. They may expect large things if they have faith in His promises. {DA 668}


Jesus paid the price for the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf. It is His desire that we come to Him in faith, as He wants us, claiming all of His wonderful promises. When we place our highest demands upon Him, we will glorify the Father in His name. In so doing, we may expect great things. If we ask anything in His name, He promises He will do. We are granted this power by His mercy and grace, and the Lord is disappointed when we place such a low value on ourselves. We are His people and should not look at ourselves as grasshoppers but rather as giants and heirs of His heavenly kingdom. Look to Jesus and believe on Him as our great intercessor to the Father which art in heaven.


Our Father, which art in heaven,

We come to you on our knees to thank You for the price You have paid on our behalf. We believe on You and all of Your promises, that whatsoever we ask in Your name, that You will do. We pray that by Your mercy and grace, that we may continue to receive Your power from on high, and continue to expect great things from You. We are sorry and humbly repent of our sins. We ask for the forgiveness of our sins, the known and the unknown and that You may cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Save us that one day we will be with You in heaven where we can continue to glorify Your name. We thank You and praise You, and it is in the precious name of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.
