This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God;
As for me, I said in my alarm,
“I am cut off from before Your eyes”;
Nevertheless You heard the voice of my supplications
When I cried to You.
Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
So that they caused the cry of the poor to come to Him,
And that He might hear the cry of the afflicted—
The righteous cry, and the Lord hears
And delivers them out of all their troubles.
For the Lord hears the needy
And does not despise His who are prisoners.
The Lord is far from the wicked,
But He hears the prayer of the righteous.
Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
We know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is God-fearing and does His will, He hears him.
I knew that You always hear Me; but because of the people standing around I said it, so that they may believe that You sent Me.”
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
Until now you have asked for nothing in My name; ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be made full.

but Christ was faithful as a Son over His house—whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the boast of our hope firm until the end.
For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our assurance firm until the end,
Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward.
But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures.
Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
Now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away from Him in shame at His coming.
