1 John 5:14
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
1 Timothy 2:8
Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing.
