Bible: John 16:23-28

16:23 At that time 1  you will ask me nothing. I tell you the solemn truth, 2  whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you. 3  16:24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive it, 4  so that your joy may be complete.

16:25I have told you these things in obscure figures of speech; 5  a time 6  is coming when I will no longer speak to you in obscure figures, but will tell you 7  plainly 8  about the Father. 16:26 At that time 9  you will ask in my name, and I do not say 10  that I will ask the Father on your behalf. 16:27 For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God. 11  16:28 I came from the Father and entered into the world, but in turn, 12  I am leaving the world and going back to the Father.” 13
