Jesus told his disciples that he was going to prepare a place for them in his Father's House. He went on to tell them that whatever they prayed for in his name would be given them. It really feels like a bit of a non-sequiter until we understand what it means to pray in Jesus' name. Hint: its not dramatically invoking the name of Jesus to power one's prayer. Nor is it about getting what we want. It is rooted in something else Jesus says in this week's Gospel "I am the way, the truth, and the life". This week we will explore this exclusive claim and how embracing the life Jesus offers us allows us to ask for things in his name. And of course we will pray in Jesus' name.
