Name, of course, means nature. Whenever Jesus speaks of “In my name,” you must interpret it to mean “In my nature.” What is the Christ Jesus nature? Here in the Gospel of St. John, Jesus reveals His nature: “I and my Father are one(and the same).” “He that hath seen me hath seen the Father….” Christ and God are one and the same. To do anything in the name, or nature, of Jesus Christ is to do it in full recognition of one’s own Identity as the full Presence of God. There must come a point where one immediately associates the word or name “God” with his very own identity.
If Christ and God are one and the same, to whom does Christ pray? Christ prays “to” no one or no thing. Prayer, then, is the full Awareness of your God Identity as your only Identity. [from God Is All]
