Jesus, in the Name of


Name of Jesus is most used in prayers and baptism. We start prayers in the name of the Most Holy Trinity by saying, “In the name of the Father, the son and the Holy Spirit.” We usually conclude a Christian prayer by saying, “We ask this in the name of Jesus, the Lord” because Jesus taught us to pray in his name. “I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son” (Jn 14:13).

According to the instruction of Jesus (Mt 28:19), every person is baptized in the Trinitarian formula by saying “In the name of the …” Apostles did the healing or miracles in the name of Jesus (Acts 4:10; 16:18). Thus, prayer and baptism were done in the name of Jesus in the early church and it continues.


The name represents a person. So, when we pray in the name of Jesus, we are asking favors from God based on the merits of Jesus. Let us also keep the reputation of our names by keeping our spirituality and morality.
