The beggar looked at the lawyer and said, “It’s wonderful what has happened to you. Look at me, I have nothing.” They talked for a while and the lawyer said to his friend, “I hope it will not embarrass you, but I’d like to make a gift to you. Here’s a check. I want you to take it and buy some things you might need.”
The man took the check and looked at it. “Oh,” he said, “When I go into the bank dressed in these rags, do you think they will give me any money?” The lawyer replied, “My friend, it’s not the way you look that counts. It’s my name on the check.”
That’s the way our Lord has taught us to pray. We don’t bring our worth to God expecting Him to answer according to our appearance or our deeds. When we pray, we pray in the name of Jesus.
Psalm 124:8 says, “Our help is in the name of the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.” Jesus said, “And I will do whatever you ask in My name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask Me for anything in My name, and I will do it” (John 14:13-14).
