The words ‘everything’ and ‘whatever’ are embracing. Jesus assures us that God will answer our prayers. If you ask in His Name, He will do it. Ask whatever you wish in His Name. Ask and you will receive. That brings a joy from getting prayer answered. Jesus wants you to have that joy. Jesus tells you to ask.
John 14:12-20New International Version (NIV)
12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing,and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit
15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19 Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. 20 On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.
Father, Jesus says that if I ask in his name, he will do it, so that the Father may be glorified in Jesus. If I ask in Jesus’ Name, he will do it. (John 14:13-14) I will abide in you, Jesus. May your Word abide in me. I will ask in your name, Jesus, and I will receive so that my joy may be made full. Thank you.
God has his ear open to your personal and individual prayers. Jesus taught us by example. Having prayer in your life is one of the most exciting experiences one can have, to know that God, Creator of Heaven and Earth, the Ruler of the whole universe cares about your personal prayer.
