“Ask for what you want in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son,” John 14:13.
This text refers to the petition which must be made with only one view: that the father may be glorified by, or in, the Son.
Ask yourself a question. In whose name are you glorifying? For whose sake is it made? Who is doing it? The word of God says to seek not your own glory but the glory of God. Christ promised to do it for the glory of His Heavenly Father.
This is a prayer assessed to the Father. But the answer here is the Son, for the Son was one with the Father with no limitations but the promise of God.
Whatsoever you shall ask, and it is asked in My name, to do My will, My work, living in My Spirit, seeking as I have sought to do the will of the Father.
This is a personal petition that cannot be completed except it is for the glory of God. We cannot ask in ignorance because it will not be granted.
What are you attaching to your prayer, through Jesus Christ our Lord? When you understand God, then you understand the will of God. This is what is heard by his chosen people.
The gift of the Holy Spirit is bestowed upon the disciples of Christ, and not on the world.
We must have a consciousness of God, not just his will or his purpose but Him as God.
God is ‘isness’ and his ‘isness’ is in you, the sainted body of Christ. All Christians now ask in faith, and according to the will of God, it will be for fulfilled.
