About This Song~ In The Mighty Name of Jesus
by Suzanne Davis Harden
In the Mighty Name of Jesus is an original keyboard instrumental prayer from my recent album Midnight Prayers and Meditations.
Someone may ask what exactly is an instrumental prayer?
That is an excellent question since my album features sixteen tracks of them, I will try to explain here what they are and what they are not.
Instrumental prayers are simply my prayers in musical form.
When I sit down to play my instrument, I pray whatever prayer is on my heart to the Lord as I compose the music that the Holy Spirit inspires on my my Yamaha keyboard and worship God.
Prayer, whether it is in the form of music, or thoughts, or words, means nothing though unless it is backed by faith.
If a person prays and has no faith to believe that God will answer their prayers, then that soul is just aiming what Jesus called “vain repetitions” at God.
The Lord has no use for such things according to Jesus.
About prayer Jesus said, “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask Him.” ~ (Matthew 6:7-8)
What is faith?
The bible says “…Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” And that “…without faith it is impossible to please (God): for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” ~(Hebrews 11:1,6)
In other words then, my whole album of musical prayers is just an album of instrumental songs to one who has no faith or who does not believe in God or prayer. They can just listen to the music and that is all it is going to be for them, music to enjoy.
But for someone who believes in prayer, that soul can make a prayer out of the songs for themselves. They can pray for the nation, for wisdom for the leadership of this country, they can pray for healing from the pandemic, they can pray for their suffering loved ones, they can give thanks for their mothers ~ they can pray all the prayers that are on this album and offer them up to the Lord as their own prayers in the mighty name of Jesus.
The song “In the Mighty Name of Jesus” is almost ten minutes in length.
Imagine if we each spent about ten minutes just interceding in prayer before the Lord’s throne for things like our nation, wisdom for our leaders, giving thanks for our loved ones, praying for the suffering among our friends and family and co-workers, praying for healing from the pandemic, and some of the other things we are concerned about that worry us, just about the length of this song.
Imagine if we just put this song on, and went into our prayer closet and when the song was over, we said, “Thanks Lord, for listening to me, In the mighty name of Jesus, amen.
That ten minutes could make such a big difference in our personal lives and in our world. Please give the ten minutes of prayer in the mighty name of Jesus a try. The Lord gave me that song for a good reason. He made it that length for a good reason. He gave me that title for the track.
I promise that He doesn’t do anything for no reason.
May the Lord bless you all, in the Mighty Name of Jesus, amen.
Love in Christ,
