I think someone missed the verse before? Jesus is not His Father!! You ask FATHER in Jesus name. You are not asking Jesus when asking His Father as the opener clearly shows. 23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

The fact that Jesus is the God Abraham and the prophets prayed to is proven by what Jesus said in John 16, verses 23 and 24, 'At that time you won 't need to ask me for anything. The truth is, you can go directly to the Father and ask him, and he will grant your request because you use my name. You haven 't done this before. ... ' Do you see the point? Jesus was saying to the disciples that they had never prayed to the Father because no one in the Old Testament was aware of his existence. All they knew of God was his one personality, YHWH JESUS. But early in his ministry Jesus introduces them to the existence of God 's two other personalities, the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus said to Nicodemus, I assure you, I am telling you what WE know and have seen, and yet you won 't believe US. Then in John 14, 15, and 16 Jesus tells us about the work of the Father and the Holy Spirit. What I am saying is, there is only one God, and he is one entity. But this entity has three distinct self expressions that we call persons. The Father is the way God directs his affairs. The Holy Spirit is the way God inspires us to believe. But God always always speaks to us as Jesus. If you have trouble understanding this, please ask the Holy Spirit to help you. May God bless you always!

That the name of Jesus Christ is supreme and it is the only name that can appeal to God's heart for all request that man can submit. That is the only name that all the debates of the world centred.You are either in His camp or not. Jesus Christ is the issue, the pillar of all. The Son of God and the Savior of the world.
