Luke 2:7 (Pt.3) Thought/Prayer:  In the Name of the Baby Jesus?  Topics: 2 at end.

“She gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a feeding trough, because there was no room for them in the inn.”  WEB (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

I’ve had a thought that is new to me:  it has to do with the name of the baby Jesus.  We so often end a prayer with, “ . . . in Jesus’ name” because we identify with Jesus and His position of interceding for us before the Father God.  Using this closing to a prayer lets those praying know that we have the right to pray to God because of our salvation through His son.

At Christmas time, maybe we can think of this in a way that is a bit different.  Our focus, of course, is on the Christ child coming as a baby.  It’s a good focus, worthy and strong.  We love that little baby especially since we know that He is the Perfect One who gets us on an intimate basis with God.

Now think of His name.  Mary was told to name her baby boy Jesus.  And at Christmas we sing many songs about the baby Jesus being in the manger, bringing silent-night peace, and being the king, Christ.  So, in considering the name of this baby, can we think of praying in the name of the baby Jesus?  He’s all Jesus.  And He comes with all of the wondrous names for Himself that we learn from the Bible . . . Prince of Peace, Lord of Lord, our High Priest, to name a few. 

This is not to belabor a point.  But, actually, when we consider this, when we pray in Jesus’ name, we are including the name of the infant, Earthly Jesus.  Perhaps to think this will bring us closer to realizing Who that little baby really was; Who He is to us today; Who He will remain forever.  When we picture ourselves bowing before Him Who lies in a feed trough, we can pray before the manger, in His name.

Lord, thank you that Jesus Christ came as a baby yet with all of the credentials He has been given since before time, credentials we see in His name.  We ask that Christians can realize this and that it will influence their prayers toward LIFE for those preborn because LIFE itself came as a baby.

Topics:  Pray for understanding of the depth of meaning found in the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, Savior.
