Forsyth: in Christ's name

Saturday, July 8, 2023
    [Jesus:] “In that day you will no longer ask me anything. I tell you the truth, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.”
    —John 16:23-24 (NIV)
    Ask for everything you can ask in Christ’s name, i.e. everything desirable by a man who is in Christ’s kingdom of God, by a man who lives for it at heart, everything in tune with the purpose and work of the kingdom in Christ. If you are in that kingdom, then pray freely for whatever you need or wish to keep you active and effective for it, from daily bread upwards and outwards.
    ... P. T. Forsyth (1848-1921), The Soul of Prayer [1916], Regent College Publishing, 2002, p. 76 (see the book)
    See also John 16:23-24; Matt. 6:6-8; 7:11; 9:37-38; 18:19-20; 21:21-22; Mark 11:22-25; Luke 11:13; John 14:12-14; 15:7; Col. 3:17; 1 Thess. 5:17
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your people boldly approach Your throne of grace.
