Prayer Promises

23 And (A)on that day (B)you will not question Me about anything. Truly, truly I say to you, (C)if you ask the Father for anything in My name, He will give it to you. 24 (D)Until now you have asked for nothing in My name; ask and you will receive, so that your (E)joy may be made full.

25 “These things I have spoken to you in (F)figures of speech; (G)an hour is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figures of speech, but will tell you plainly about the Father. 26 (H)On that day (I)you will ask in My name, and I am not saying to you that I will request of the Father on your behalf; 27 for (J)the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me and (K)have believed that (L)I came forth from the Father. 28 (M)I came forth from the Father and have come into the world; again, I am leaving the world and (N)going to the Father.”

29 His disciples *said, “See, now You are speaking plainly and are not [a]using any (O)figure of speech. 30 Now we know that You know all things, and that You have no need for anyone to question You; this is why we (P)believe that You (Q)came forth from God.”
