        "Whatever you ask the Father in My Name. . ."  This phrase is often taken literally and so we end our prayers with "through Jesus Christ," or uttering "in the Name of Christ." 

        "In the name of Christ" means "as we obey all the commands of Christ."     

        The promise that He will answer our prayers is under the condition that we have obeyed His commands.

        Christ came to save us.  So He gave us His commandments and gave the apostolic commission to teach all these commandments and how to obey them.  This is "in the Name of Christ."

        In fact, when Christ taught us to pray, He did not add "through Jesus Christ" or "in the Name of Jesus."  He had a deeper meaning for it.
