The Name

'This is the stone rejected by you the builders, but which has proved to be the keystone. For of all the names in the world given to men, this is the only one by which we can be saved.’
Acts 4:11,12

John and Peter are being interrogated by the leaders and elders of the temple following the miraculous healing of the cripple.  Peter is "filled with the Holy Spirit" and boldly explains how the cripple came to be healed; by the name of Jesus.

Peter repeatedly clarifies the source of the power he and John employed; the name of Jesus.  He never hints that anything comes from himself.  It's always in the name of Jesus.  I have a list of prayer intentions I pray for each day.  Using the name of Jesus miracles can happen... today.

Lord Jesus, I lift up in Your precious name, the name by which all are saved, all those for whom I am praying.  In Your mighty name may they be healed, restored and blessed.  Amen.
