5.1 – Assurance of an Answer – John 16:24

Memorize John 16:24

Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete (NRSV).

Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete (NIV).

Reflect on John 16:24

  • Read chapter 16 of John's gospel from the NRSV, the NIV, or The MESSAGE.
  • What would you like to ask God about that you have not yet asked?  Why haven't you asked?
  • When you pray what do you expect to happen?
  • Richard Foster said, "When we pray, genuinely pray, the real condition of our heart is revealed.  This is as it should be.  This is when God truly begins to work with us.  The adventure is just beginning."  How is your adventure going?
