Question
Hello Christina I’ve been adhering to you because that the previous month and I am very inspired with your teachings. I do have a concern that ns feel you may recognize the price to. I understand Jesus is God in human being flesh but I get confused. Who execute I walk to in prayer and also worship as whole my day to day conversations. Some people say God (which is how I was raised) then I hear others say Jesus. Who do I walk to? Who carry out send my prayers to? One minute ns hear who say God climate in the adhering to sentence it’s Jesus. I constantly thought ns am expect to go to God and now i feel as if I’m leaving out Jesus. Yet if Jesus is God how can I it is in leaving him out. I’m in need of a straight up answer therefore I have the right to have some type ofunderstanding.

You are right, Jesus is God so when you pray to God friend are essentially praying come both Jesus and also God. Although God, Jesus, and the holy Spirit are one, they carry out play various roles in ours prayer life.
Like ns said, us pray come God. But since we room imperfect speaking to a holy God, we require an intercessor to cover for us you could say. Jesus is the someone that vouches for us. Jesus is the factor we can confidently approach God in the first place because of His sacrifice ~ above the cross the forgives united state of our sins and also clears united state of unrighteousness prior to God. (Hebrews 4:15-16) without Jesus we have no relationship with God and also cannot also talk to Him in prayer. Just like we can’t simply go talk to the President uneven invited, the exact same is true through God, therefore Jesus invited united state to execute so. So as soon as we approach God we carry out so in the government of Jesus Christ. This is why you will hear many world say “In the name of Jesus Christ ns pray. Amen.” at the finish of your prayers.
However, just due to the fact that you speak “In the name of Jesus” at the finish of your prayer go not median you get everything you want. Someone might pray “Dear God, you re welcome hurt Sally because I don’t prefer her. In the name of Jesus. Amen”. God is not going to honor a prayer prefer that.
So the Bible also tells us to pray in the Spirit. (Ephesians ‭6:1) This way that once we carry out pray we space not praying because that selfish things however for what God wills. The holy Spirit will overview us in ours prayers to aid us to execute this. Praying in the Spirit way desiring the things God wants, not only what us want. It’s corresponding our will v God’s.
Now, we deserve to still call God how we feel. The holy bible tells us to cast our tension on Him. (1 Peter 5:7) yet the allude of prayer is to obtain us top top the exact same track as God. A good example that this is Jesus’ prayer in the garden before He is about to be crucified. He casts out His stress and anxiety on the mr by questioning God to take it this cup, or case from Him however in the finish He at some point asks for God’s will to it is in done. (Luke 22:42) Jesus also offers us the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13 as an instance for us to pray.
Again, this is great question i pray I had the ability to answer. Thank you because that trusting me with your question. I’m also going come list an ext scriptures on this subject in the description box listed below that i think will include to this conversation.
