At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, every tongue confess Him King of glory now; ‘Tis the Father’s pleasure we should call Him Lord, who from the beginning was the mighty Word.
Greetings dear family of our beloved Saviour, Jesus Christ. May the glorious name of Jesus be always praised, blessed, loved, adored and glorified. Amen.
What a blessing it is to be able to call upon the name that is ABOVE all other names, the name of Jesus our beloved Saviour. St. Paul writes: “And being found in human form He humbled himself and became obedient unto death even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:8 – 11). Can we ever praise and thank our God enough for the gift of His Son Jesus. What a blessing it is to be able to say with a heart full of faith, “Jesus, my joy and my salvation!” When we are ill or tired we can get periods when we are too ill and weak to pray with a great deal of thought, deep meditations, or eloquent words. But this is not a problem or something that need keep us from loving and worshipping God to the best of our ability.
If our brain is all “fog” we can just call upon the name of Jesus and this is a prayer in itself because there is POWER in the name of JESUS. We can simply lie still and lift our eyes to Heaven and softly repeat, “My Jesus, my love. My Jesus, my love.” Just to whisper the name of Jesus in our weakness with a gentle breath will mean so much to our Lord and if we can say these words with a heart full of love what more do we need to say to let our Lord know how much we love Him? There is power in the name of Jesus, let us call upon that power as we pray:
Jesus we call upon Your Holy Name to bless our homes, our families and our friends. We call upon Your Holy Name to strengthen us in Your Spirit and give us peace in our lives. We ask this through Your grace and mercy. Amen.
