Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

Through You we will push down our enemies; through Your name we will trample those who rise up against us. – Ps 44:5

God’s name is powerful. The people of Israel knew that God was responsible for all their victories. They knew that because of His name, and the strength of His name, they would trample every enemy who rose up against them.

There is no name more powerful than Jesus. By His name, the sick are healed:

And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. – Acts 3:16

By His name, every enemy is defeated:

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. – Phil 2:9-11

When you pray, do you use the name Jesus? Declare God’s promises in the name of Jesus. Pray to the Father, in the name of Jesus, with the power of God’s Holy Spirit: and watch your life transform!


Father, help me to understand the power in Your name. I declare that every chain is broken, and every captive is set free, by the power in Your name! I can pray with the authority of Heaven, in Jesus’ name!
