IN THE NAME OF JESUS
Then Peter said, "Solver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up an walk."
Some people are employed to speak for another person or institution--the White House press secretary does that every day. The press secretary regularly meets with representatives of the press and is the spokesperson for the United States government--especially the president--on topics regarding politics, recent national or world events, and issues of the day.
Something simil. When Peter and John healed a man outside the Temple in Acts 3, Peter disclaimed his own authority and said, "In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk."
We pray to the Father "in Jesus;' name" not because it is a magic formula, but because it is only in Christ that we have access to the Father. When we pray in Jesus name we are asking God to hear the prayer as if Jesus Himself were praying it. Jesus ministered in the Father's name, we minister in His name.
