Bible: John 16:20-24
16:20 I tell you the solemn truth, 1 you will weep 2 and wail, 3 but the world will rejoice; you will be sad, 4 but your sadness will turn into 5 joy. 16:21 When a woman gives birth, she has distress 6 because her time 7 has come, but when her child is born, she no longer remembers the suffering because of her joy that a human being 8 has been born into the world. 9 16:22 So also you have sorrow 10 now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you. 11 16:23 At that time 12 you will ask me nothing. I tell you the solemn truth, 13 whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you. 14 16:24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive it, 15 so that your joy may be complete.
