When We Pray In Jesus Name by Debbie Harris

Based on Psalm 18: 6-10

I wish I could see what happens spiritually in the heavenly realm when we as His children pray in Jesus’ name.

I imagine the angels of splendor and glory heralding the coming prayers of a Heavenly heir

by singing jubilant songs of welcoming. Cherubim and seraphim stop the heavenly rush

as quietness stills the throne room of the King-a Holy Hush when His children share through prayer

their joy, dreams, loneliness, sin, despair, needs, or tears of pain. Each tear a prayer to the Father,

a plea for action. And His answer, I hear so loud and clear. “I am Alpha and Omega. I am wonderful, Counselor,

the mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace. I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.

You are the apple of my eye. For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper

you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future.I love you. I care.

I am the voice of hope not the voice of condemnation, discouragement, or despair.”

Then must come a heavenly, God-sent love order, sent thru morning, afternoon, or midnight air

to come to the rescue of His child. I imagine Heavenly rushed love orders are sent to angelic

legions and battalions so that they may ready themselves for a rescue mission for there is a

child of the King in prayer. Then comes the sending of answers, divine yessess, divine noes,

divine “waits”-yesses as important as noes, noes as important as yessess. “Wait”s designed to

grow us up in Him. All prayers heard. All answers sent perfectly timed and orchestrated, in

accordance to His divine will. I am in wonder as I try to imagine what happens in the spiritual realm

when we as His children pray in Jesus’ name.
