This area has been a problem among Bible believers in the military chaplaincy. This was seen recently in the case of the Navy chaplain who was disciplined for the problem. “Jesus name” usually is discouraged from use and a generic name used for deity or God. This clashes with Biblical mandates for Bible believing people.
Sample introduction, remarks and prayer:
Today we have here people from many different faith groups and religions. Since I have been asked today lead in prayer, I ask you to pray in the way your faith group prays silently or in a subdued manner while I lead in prayer the way my faith group prays.
Prayer. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . In Jesus name, Amen.
