Ask in My Name

[Jesus said:] "In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name, he will give it to you. John 16:23
Today is a very special day for the people of the United States of America. ...You see, Memorial Day is the day we honor our dead—particularly the dead who served to protect us in the armed services of our nation so that we at home might enjoy the freedom to assemble as we do right here, right now, today. Thanks be to God in Christ Jesus our Lord!

... But more importantly—yes, even more important than Memorial Day for all of us, whether believer or unbeliever; today is a sabbath day of rest, a day designated by God for us to "come to the knowledge of the truth…and be saved.” This day is not designated by God because it falls on a particular day of the week or as specific date on the calendar, like Memorial Day. No, as Jesus has said, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” Mark 2:27
