And my conscience says do it when I discuss things with GOD/JESUS.

Me.
Though when I pray after going to bed (I pray any time something new comes in my head) I sometimes drift off to sleep before it's complete.

gpa&hisguns Swims you can do it however you want but the the Bible is clear....there is only one mediator betwixt us and God and that is Jesus. Sometimes I say "In the Lord's name I pray" but I always give reference to Christ in closing. I honestly feel like my prayer is incomplete without it.

Yes, you pray just like I do. Our concerns should be for others and I think aiming at them is GOD's will.

I found out that it isn't selfish to ask for prayer for yourself.
Good post.
Yes, he knows what we need, and he has blessed my wife and I abundantly.

You will never convince me that leaving out HIS name is okay.
I could not be a military chaplin, because I would not belittle Jesus by making some generic prayer to satisfy the brass and the attendees who couldn't care less about Jesus.

I just know, that when I am judged, I won't have to try and make excuses for not giving credit where credit is due. And Jesus, who came to this earth to suffer horrible punishment and a horrible death on the cross, for ME, gets the credit for bearing my sins and giving me a chance of an eternity with HIM.
