Matthew (Author Matthew)

6:5And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

6:6But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

6:7But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

6:8Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

6:9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

6:10Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

6:11Give us this day our daily bread.

6:12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

7:9Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?

7:10Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?

18:19Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

18:20For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

21:22And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Mark (Author John Mark)

11:24Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Luke (Author Luke)

11:5And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves;

11:6For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him?

11:7And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee.

11:8I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.

11:9And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

11:10For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

11:11If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?

11:12Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?

11:13If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

18:1And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

18:2Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:

18:3And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.

18:4And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;

18:5Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.

18:6And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.

18:7And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?

18:8I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

21:36Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

John (Author John)

4:10Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

4:23But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

9:31Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.

14:13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14:14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

15:7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

15:16Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

16:23And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

16:24Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

16:26At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:

16:27For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.

Acts (Author Luke)

7:34I have seen, I have seen the affliction of my people which is in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning, and am come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send thee into Egypt.

22:16And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

Romans (Author Paul)

8:26Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

4:16Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

10:22Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

10:23Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

11:6But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

James (Author James)

1:5If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

1:6But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

1:7For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

4:8Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

4:10Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

5:16Confess 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 (Author John)

3:22And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

5:14And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

5:15And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
