Use These 25 Names Of Jesus To Make Your Prayers Powerful And Unstoppable

In the Christian tradition, names carry immense power. They reveal the character of the person, and in the case of Jesus Christ, they tell us a great deal about his mission and his nature. Utilizing these names in your prayer life can deepen your relationship with God and make your prayers more effective. As a Catholic scholar, I find this subject deeply enriching, and I want to delve into 25 names of Jesus that can make our prayers powerful and, for lack of a better term, unstoppable.

Names, Titles, and their Importance in the Scriptures

In the Holy Scriptures, a name is not just a tag or a label. It tells us something about the essence of the person. Think about the name Emmanuel, which means “God with us.” When you call Jesus Emmanuel, you are not just calling out to him; you’re making a statement about who He is and what He’s about.

“Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and his name shall be called Emmanuel” (which means, God with us). (Matthew 1:23, RSV-CE)

How Does the Church Understand the Power of Jesus’ Names?

The Catechism of the Catholic Church makes it clear that Jesus Christ is the center of all Christian prayer.

“Prayer is the raising of one’s mind and heart to God or the requesting of good things from God” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2559).

While it does not explicitly mention the use of names of Jesus, the principle is clear: when we understand who Jesus is, we pray more effectively.
