John 16:23 If you ask the Father for anything, He will give it to you in My name…

This is not a magical formula for instant answers to any conceivable request; it is the prayer of believers in Jesus Christ. 

To ask in Jesus’s Name, we ask in His behalf. Praying as Christ’s representatives doing His business, and praying that which is consistent with His character, our prayers will be answered. We must pray according to the will of the Father motivated by the glorification of Jesus Christ. 1 John 5:15f.
