Prayer Comment:
 At the beginning of this prayer take a minute or two to centre on Jesus and then move in faith to God dwelling within you.  Slowly and reverently pray the phrase Jesus, Son of the Living God have mercy on me.   Keep repeating the words within you and allow yourself to be drawn into the Heart of God.  

The Power of the Name Jesus Son of the Living God will set you free.  His Name delivers us from the temptations of sin and we can begin to pray this way when or wherever we are being tempted by the world, the flesh or the devil. Through this way of praying we come to know and experience the power of Jesus setting us free from sinful thoughts, desires or temptations.
Prayer is not a magic formula; it requires faith and a belief in the power of Jesus as the Son of God.  We receive the gift of faith at Baptism and the events in our lives plus the effects of sin can weaken our belief in Jesus’ power.  If you wish to grow and increase in faith the prayer exercise Jesus’ Living Waters of Faith will help you. 

The angel Gabriel told Mary to name her Child Jesus. And to Joseph, the angel explained  ”He will save His people from their sins” ( Mat 1:21). We honour the Name of Jesus because “There is no salvation through anyone else, nor is there any other name under heaven given to the human race by which we are to be saved” (Acts 4:12).
