P r a y e r  Q u e s t i o n s

-At the end of every prayer in church, they always say "and we ask all this and give thanks in the name of Emmanuel, Amen." Couldn't this become vain repetition as it says in Matthew 6:7?

Here's a prayer I use for giving thanks. "With thankful hearts for the food before us, we share this time together recognizing the infinite intelligent Being who provides and sustains all in the universe. Let's eat!"

Amen = I Am and means 'true'; it's just an expression of trust or confidence that you are an expression of God and therefore are of God:.John 10:34. Amen also means 'so be it' or that you are in agreement.(if you are?; some prayers I have heard I did not agree with;.more on the word "amen").with what was prayed out loud by another.

Asking 'in His name' can be just a religious thing:.John 16:23.
Asking 'in His name' means you are with Him, that is, of the same mind.(John 17:26).as He and He has the mind, the consciousness of love:.Colossians 3:17; Ephesians 5:20; Acts 9:27,29; 19:5; 1John 4:8; Mark 9:41.

Some researchers have discovered that the word Amon, Amun and similar, are words having to do with ancient worship of the Egyptian god of life and reproduction, represented as a man with a ram's head. The word "amen" appears to be a derivative of this ancient pagan worship. 

If the loving nature of Emmanuel Christ is in you, you are more than 'living in His name', as though He was in heaven and you far away. If this nature is in you, you are in His name and His name denotes His nature and much more, like, in His heart and He in yours. 

This 'in His name' approach sounds like He has given you power of attorney to do things on His behalf. But really, He is the One whose nature.(not personality, but nature).of love is through you and the more so you become loving in all your ways. It is not that you do things on His behalf. It is you acting from your heart with a loving nature you now can have, just by deciding to be. This nature was not available in past history

To ask 'in His name' is to ask, knowing.(believing).that you have the same nature of love He has.(John 14:20), and that you believe that He was indeed as He said He was.(Acts 4:12).and that you are one with both Him and the Father, because you have the same nature of love that binds you to them:.John 17:11; John 1:12; 2:23; 20:31; Acts 3:16

Emmanuel kept others 'in His name' while here:.John 17:12,26. We keep 'in His name' by becoming as loving as He is, for His nature and the nature of His Father, the Great Infinite One, is only love. 

Christ is alive, dynamic, living and in you now if you have decided to be the same as He is in nature! If you do not feel it, you ain't focusin' on it! You can only experience what you are aware of.

Many Christians are taught weekly on sin in them. Perhaps this is the reason some persons do not feel very spiritual, ones who were so interested in the spiritual things of the Creator. 

The scriptures where the 'giving thanks in His name' or 'asking in His name' come from are Ephesians 5:20 and Colossians 3:17

Colossians 3:17 with Colossians 3:23.(where it says that whatever you do, do it heartily as unto the Lord).means, that in all your daily living, have a constant present awareness of the Lord's nature inside you. Look for opportunities to express this nature of love.

The phrase 'in my name' means both the mouthing of the words.(Luke 9:49; 21:8; Mark 9:39; 13:6).and simply just praying silently as did Hannah. So you choose when to do what.

We need to know that what we believe is truth. Emmanuel said many would come along who had alternate purposes and point people towards Christ:.Matthew 24:5.

In places where the phrase 'in the name' means 'realizing Christ is in you', the word 'in' is a primary preposition denoting a fixed position in place, time or state and by implication, instrumentality.(medially or constructively).from a base intermediate between 'into' and 'out from'. So perhaps we could say then, that we pray 'into' the Father, 'out from' or because of, Christ's nature in us.

The word 'name' means 'knowing' or, the name is used for everything which the name covers, everything the thought or feeling of which is aroused in the mind by mentioning, hearing and remembering the name. What does the name of Emmanuel the Christ mean to you

In such places where it occurs, the phrase 'in my name' can be understood as when praying, know Christ is in you, meaning you have the same nature of love that typifies all that is truly spiritual and because of this, the Father hears you:.John 9:31 "Now we know that God hears not sinners.(and we are in the Father's heart, no longer sinners, for how can you sin when love is your motivation {Romans 13:10}; the only way to miss the mark {what the word 'sin' actually means} is to not want to be on the higher consciousness pathway), but if any man be a worshipper of God and does His will, him He hears."

It is the depth of understanding in the heart that counts.(one's belief).
   John 14:26 talks of the Father sending the Holy Nature.(Holy Spirit, also called Holy Ghost).to those who believe in what Christ came to earth to show what was now possible spiritually. Believing sin is in you is the antithesis of believing that Christ's Nature is in you. 

Also in 1Corinthians 10:31, Paul was saying to the Corinthians (new Christians in Corinth, Greece), that whatever they do should be done to the glory of God. Again, what is in the heart is what counts.

And, be thankful:.1Thessalonians 3:9 "For what thanks can we render to God again for you for all the joy wherewith we joy for your sakes before our God." 2Thessalonians 1:3 "We are bound to thank God always for you brethren as it is meet.(fitting, suitable).because that your faith grows exceedingly and the charity.(old English for 'love').of every one of you all toward each other abounds." 2Thessalonians 2:13 "But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you brethren beloved of the Lord, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth."

1Thessalonians 5:18 "In.everything.give thanks.(why?). For this is the will of God in Christ.Emmanuel concerning you."

In Matthew 6:7 the word vain is not in the original but is correctly implied

Do not worry if you miss getting everything 'right':.Romans 8:27. Just talk to your Creator. He knows what is you in there.

David, who had God's Spirit.(Psalms 51:11).never ended any of his prayers with "and I ask this in the name of our coming Lord and Saviour Emmanuel the Christ" or anything even close to it. Emmanuel never said to add this tag onto a prayer's end. There are no scriptures in the Bible that say to the effect of 'asking' 'or ask', 'in the name of Emmanuel, in the name of Christ, in the name of the Lord'. Rather, we are in constant prayer and different ways for each person and/or situation are fine, always connected to the source of love in the universe.(1Thessalonians 5:17,18), when we have a consistent present awareness of the nature of Christ in us and when we talk to the Father in the invisible heaven.
