The Never-Failing Passport for our Prayers

"There is a way by which any  man, however sinful and unworthy, may draw near to God the Father.  Jesus Christ has opened that way by the sacrifice he made for us upon the cross.  The holiness and justice of God need not frighten sinners and keep them back.  Only let them cry to God in the name of Jesus, only let them plead the atoning blood of Jesus, and they shall find God upon a throne of grace, willing and ready to hear.  The name of Jesus is a never-failing passport for our prayers.  In that name a man may draw near to God with boldness, and ask with confidence.  God has engaged to hear him.  Think of this.  Is not this encouragement?" - Ryle, A Call to Prayer
