Read John 14:13-14 from your Bible
The name of Jesus is the seal of authority that compels heaven to dispatch the answer to your prayer once you are heard. Many people think the name of Jesus is a punctuation mark, a pause in prayer or an exclamatory religious word. No!
There is power in the name of Jesus! The name is backed up with all the anointing that Jesus has, both while He was here on earth and now that He is seated at the right hand of God. The Bible tells us that God gave Him the Holy Spirit without measure (John 3:34).

Jesus is anointed without measure, telling you how powerful His name is. If, for instance, the President of your nation gives you a note, with his name and signature on it, that note carries as much power and authority as his physical presence with you. With it in your hand, you have equal access to the places and things that the President has to.
In the same way, the authority and power in the name of Jesus is what you release when you pray in His name.
Read Philippians 2:9-11 from your Bible
That name answers both in heaven, on the earth, and everywhere. That means no authority in heaven, or on earth can resist it. Peter’s prayer for the lame man at the gate beautiful, though very brief, but because it was wrapped up in the name of Jesus, the result was instant.
Read Acts 3:6-7 from your Bible
No opposition facing you can withstand the name of Jesus. When you invoke that name, you are not only putting a demand on the anointing, but also on the integrity of God, and He is bound to respond. At the mention of the name of Jesus, angels arise in heaven to carry out the orders that the name has been sent to accomplish (Hebrews 1:4; 14).
Moreover, the name of Jesus is your heritage in God. You have every right to use the name, as Jesus’ Himself commands us:
“Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.” (John 16:24)
So stop chanting the name as though it carries no power; it is the authority seal that validates your request in heaven. Without the proper use of that name, your prayer cannot return to you unanswered. God is committed to the name, as He Himself gave it to Jesus (Philippians 2:9).
