Jesus said that asking for something in His Name, and receiving the answer, will bring glory to the Father. Jesus wanted to always point to the Father. The Father answers the prayer. And if it is prayed in the Name of Jesus, we know we are praying to the "right" God, and not a false God. We are praying to the Father of Jesus. Answering the prayer brings Him glory, where it belongs.

What does "In Jesus Name" mean?

In Jesus's service. For His sake/purposes/benefit. (This is naturally for my own maximum personal benefit. Rom 8:16-18)

When my request is for strength, protection, riches or anything else to be used in the service of the Saviour, then I can legitimately say I am asking in the name of Jesus Christ. (Am. Heritage Dict: name)

If I am asking with an eye to my own comfort, luxury or glory, then my prayer is not in the name of Jesus Christ (1 Cor 13:1-3.) Closing a luxury-lusting prayer "in the name of Jesus Christ" is, in my view, a form of taking the name of the Lord in vain. (Jms 4:3; Exo 20:7) This is not wise.

I have found it very fruitful, and the Spirit confirms to me that it is right, to think "am I using this in the service of Jesus Christ?" before saying "in the name of Jesus Christ."

To give a cup of water , God remembers small little acts of kindness extended to believers because they are believers, his rewards including God`s approval.

Jesus - The mighty name.
Here Jesus emphasizes the pharase ``in my name`` when refering to the miracle and giving a cup of water. Jesus has given authority to his disciples to cast out demons in His name. At the same time, Jesus has given importance to the simple work also., ie., Jesus said - give a cup of water to drink in My name. Jesus` name is the only mighty name in all the world. Jesus says that whatever you do, you do it His name. Then Jesus promises that you will not lose your reward. We have to bear His name all time and we have the responsibility to bear His image and likeness also.

Whoever Is Not Against Us Is for Us

John said to him, "Teacher, we saw someone who doesn't follow us casting out demons in your name; and we forbade him, because he doesn't follow us."
But Jesus said, "Don't forbid him, for there is no one who will do a mighty work in my name, and be able quickly to speak evil of me. For whoever is not against us is on our side. For whoever will give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because you are Christ's, most certainly I tell you, he will in no way lose his reward.
