praise, thanksgiving and love.

In Jesus’ Name: All authority has been given to Jesus and He in turn
has made it available to us. We need to understand what it means to be able
to operate in the authority of the Name of Jesus. When our youngest

to dinner” they came. Jesus gives us that same right to use the authority
of His name in prayer.
