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.
