Sometimes it is hard to pray. Maybe the knot in your stomach is a little too tight or disappointment looms too heavy. Maybe you have been praying for years and feel your prayers have not been answered. Maybe your horizon isn’t looking too promising.
When you cannot pray, say the name of Jesus over and over again. Repeat: Jesus, Jesus, Jesus…in your thoughts, under your breath, or boldly out loud when possible.
There is power in the beautiful, precious, holy, name of Jesus. “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus” covers it all. It is a cry out when we can’t comprehend a cry; it is healing when we can’t perceive healing; it is hope when we feel hopeless.
Pronounce this Holy Name and breath deep the promises of God through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
“…at the NAME OF JESUS, every knee shall bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Philippians, 2:10 (NASB)
I would like to give you this print to enjoy and share with others in honor of Jesus. It fits an 8x10-inch frame.
LISTEN AND ENJOY A NEW SONG!
I was deeply touched when I heard this song written and sung by my dear friend Margo. This song is a beautiful meditation on the name of Jesus. May it bless you abundantly!
