“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’ ” John 14:6.
In our prayers, we must acknowledge that we only have access to God through Jesus. Before we became Christians, we were estranged from God. We struggled and tried to stop sinning, but we couldn’t. We were “without hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus, you who were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace,” Ephesians 2:12-14 (CSB).
Without Jesus, we are alienated from God. Thus, by praying in Jesus’ name, we are constantly acknowledging our need for Jesus’ blood and our gladness to submit to God’s will.
Soon, all mankind will have their eyes opened to recognize Jesus as the only way to God. “In the dispensation of the fullness of the times He (God) might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him,” Ephesians 1:10. Then humanity will rejoice to know Jesus. Jeremiah 31:33-34.
