Read John 14:8-14
[Jesus said] “You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father.” – John 14:13 (NLT)
This is an amazing promise, and the reason we often end our prayers with “in Jesus’ name.” But the “so that…” is key. We are to ask for things that will bring glory to the Father, just as Jesus did when He was on earth. Jesus promises to do His works through us as we seek to do works that are in conformity with His will.
