HELPS Lexicon excerpt

3686 ónomaname; (figuratively) the manifestation or revelation of character, distinguishing it from others.  Thus "praying in the name of Christ" means praying as directed (authorized) by Him, i.e. in keeping with the revelation that flows out of being in His presence.  "Praying in Jesus' name" therefore is not a "religious formula" just to end prayers (or get what we want)!
