It is strange how there are times when we sit down to pray that we are at a loss on what to say. Even the most experienced person who prays will have moments when they are not sure what to say. In my own time of prayer I asked the Lord, “What do you say when you don’t know what to say?” The response I heard: Jesus. There is power in speaking the name of Jesus. Let me share some scriptures with you that verify the authority that Jesus has and has given us when we speak Jesus.

· Matthew 28:18-20 NKJV, And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

· Luke 10:17-19 NKJV, Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.” And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

These scriptures have so much truth and so much power in them. The name of Jesus, the power and authority of Jesus is enough to change the atmosphere regardless of where you are or what you are doing. I found in my own experience, when I didn’t know what to say, that just beginning with Jesus opened the flood gate of prayer within my heart. His Spirit is faithful to lead us in prayer. There is no wrong or right format to pray in. It comes from within. What is within us? His Spirit. Romans 8:26 NKJV says, “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groaning which cannot be uttered.”

When you heart is heavy, JESUS! When you can’t continue on any more in the battle you’re facing, JESUS! When you need help in the heat of the moment, JESUS! When you don’t know what to do, JESUS! When you don’t know what to say, JESUS!

My dear brothers and sisters, do NOT underestimate the power in Jesus name. James 2:19 NKJV says, “You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble.” The demons believe and tremble, can you imagine what the demons are doing when we come to Jesus in Jesus name?!!! Can you imagine their reaction when the Holy Spirit intercedes for us in groaning that cannot be uttered? !!

Heavenly Father, I thank you for the power in the name of your Son, Jesus. I lift up my brothers and sisters who are reading this article and I speak Jesus into their lives. I speak Jesus into divorce, I speak Jesus into medical needs, I speak Jesus into financial needs, I speak Jesus into depression, I speak Jesus into that single mom who just found out she is pregnant and is not sure what to do, I speak Jesus into that parent that got called to battle and is leaving behind a family that is deeply loved, I speak Jesus into this nation and the many countries of this world! I speak Jesus into those who feel alone in the world and like they have nobody to turn to! Jesus! There is power in Your name, and I pray that you would release Your power and will for my brothers and sisters in this very moment! In the powerful name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen!
