Hebrews 4:15 – 16 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot be touched with the feelings of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.
16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
1 John 5:14 -15 And this is the confidence that we have in Him: that if we ask anything according to His will, He heareth us.
15 And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.
Isaiah 45:11 “Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker: Ask Me of things to come concerning My sons, and concerning the work of My hands command ye Me.
Matthew 7: 7-8 “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Matthew 21: 19 – 22 And when He saw a fig tree by the wayside, He came to it and found nothing thereon, but leaves only. And He said unto it, “Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever.” And immediately the fig tree withered away.
20 And when the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, “How soon has the fig tree withered away!”
21 Jesus answered and said unto them, “Verily I say unto you, if ye have faith and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, ‘Be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea,’ it shall be done.
22 And all things whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
Luke 9: 52 – 56 and He sent messengers before His face. And they went and entered into a village of the Samaritans to make ready for Him.
53 But they did not receive Him, because His face was set as though He would go to Jerusalem.
54 And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, wilt Thou that we command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, even as Elijah did?”55 But He turned and rebuked them and said, “Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.56 For the Son of Man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.” And they went to another village.
Mark 11:23 – 24 For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, ‘Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea,’ and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he saith. 24 Therefore I say unto you, what things so ever ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
John 14: 13 – 14 And whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.14 If ye shall ask anything in My name, I will do it.
Philippians 4:6 Fret not about anything, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God.
Romans 4:18 – 21 Abraham, against all hope, believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which had been spoken, “So shall thy seed be.” 19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about a hundred years old, nor yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb. 20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strong in faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully persuaded that what He had promised, He was able also to perform.
