  • Then Jesus told them a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart. He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor had respect for people. In that city there was a widow who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Grant me justice against my opponent.’ For a while he refused; but later he said to himself, ‘Though I have no fear of God and no respect for anyone, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will grant her justice, sot that she may not wear me out by continually coming.’” And the Lord said, “ Listen to what the unjust judge says, And will not God grant justice to his chosen ones who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long in helping them? I tell you, he will quickly grant justice to them. And yet, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth? ”
    --------Luke Chapter 18: Verse 1-8

    Those conflicts and disputes among you, where do they come from? Do they not dome from your cravings that are at war within you? You want somethings and do not have it; so you commit murder. And you covet something and cannot obtain it; so you engage in disputes and conflicts. You do not have, because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, in order to spend what you get on your pleasures. Adulterers! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world becomes en enemy of God. Or do you suppose that it is for nothing that is Scripture says, “God yearns jealously for the spirit that he has made to dwell in us”? But he gives all the more grace; therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” submit yourselves therefore to God, Resist the devil , and he will flee from you.
    -------- James Chapter 4: Verse 1-7

    So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
    -------- Mark Chapter 11: Verse 24
    I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If in my name you ask me for anything, I will do it.
    -------- John Chapter 14: Verse 13-14
