John 14:13 - (13) And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

We say, "In Jesus' name" to ___________ us He is ______ ______.
Is there a place or position of prayer?
Jesus promised to do as we ask, so, why does it appear that He doesn't?
Mark 11:22-25 - (22) “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. (23) “TrulyI tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. (24) Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. (25) And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
