16 (A)You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and (B)bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that (C)whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you.

Prayer Promises

23 (A)In 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 [a](F)figurative language; (G)an hour is coming when I will no longer speak to you in [b]figurative language, but will tell you plainly of the Father. 26 (H)In that day (I)you will ask in My name, and I do not say 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; I am leaving the world again and (N)going to the Father.”

29 His disciples *said, “Lo, now You are speaking plainly and are not [c]using (O)a figure of speech. 30 Now we know that You know all things, and have no need for anyone to question You; by this we (P)believe that You (Q)came from God.” 31 Jesus answered them, “Do you now believe? 32 Behold, (R)an hour is coming, and has already come, for (S)you to be scattered, each to (T)his own home, and to leave Me alone; and yet (U)I am not alone, because the Father is with Me. 33 These things I have spoken to you, so that (V)in Me you may have peace. (W)In the world you have tribulation, but (X)take courage; (Y)I have overcome the world.”
