(Mt7:7-11) 7Ask, and it shall be given to you. Seek, and you shall find. Knock, and it shall be opened to you. 8For everyone who asks, receives; and whoever seeks, finds; and to anyone who knocks, it will be opened. 9Or what man is there among you, who, if his son were to ask him for bread, would offer him a stone; 10or if he were to ask him for a fish, would offer him a snake? 11Therefore, if you, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your sons, how much more will your Father, who is in heaven, give good things to those who ask him?

(Mt18:19-20) 19Again I say to you, that if two of those among you have agreed on earth, about anything whatsoever that they have requested, it shall be done for them by my Father, who is in heaven. 20For wherever two or three are gathered in my name, there am I, in their midst.”

(Mt21:22) 22And all things whatsoever that you shall ask for in prayer: believing, you shall receive.”

(Mk9:25-29) 25And when Jesus saw the crowd rushing together, he admonished the unclean spirit, saying to him, “Deaf and mute spirit, I command you, leave him; and do not enter into him anymore.” 26And crying out, and convulsing him greatly, he departed from him. And he became like one who is dead, so much so that many said, “He is dead.” 27But Jesus, taking him by the hand, lifted him up. And he arose. 28And when he had entered into the house, his disciples questioned him privately, “Why were we unable to cast him out?” 29And he said to them, “This kind is able to be expelled by nothing other than prayer and fasting.”

(Mk11:24-26) 24For this reason, I say to you, all things whatsoever that you ask for when praying: believe that you will receive them, and they will happen for you. 25And when you stand to pray, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father, who is in heaven, may also forgive you your sins. 26But if you will not forgive, neither will your Father, who is in heaven, forgive you your sins.”

(Lk1:13) 13But the Angel said to him: “Do not be afraid, Zechariah, for your prayer has been heard, and your wife Elizabeth shall bear a son to you. And you shall call his name John.

(Lk18:1-8) 1Now he also told them a parable, that we should continually pray and not cease, 2saying: “There was a certain judge in a certain city, who did not fear God and did not respect man. 3But there was a certain widow in that city, and she went to him, saying, ‘Vindicate me from my adversary.’ 4And he refused to do so for a long time. But afterwards, he said within himself: ‘Even though I do not fear God, nor respect man, 5yet because this widow is pestering me, I will vindicate her, lest by returning, she may, in the end, wear me out.’ ” 6Then the Lord said: “Listen to what the unjust judge said. 7So then, will not God grant the vindication of his elect, who cry out to him day and night? Or will he continue to endure them? 8I tell you that he will quickly bring vindication to them. Yet truly, when the Son of man returns, do you think that he will find faith on earth?”

(Jn15:7) 7If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, then you may ask for whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.

(Acts9:36-42) 36Now in Joppa there was a certain disciple named Tabitha, which in translation is called Dorcas. She was filled with the good works and almsgiving that she was accomplishing. 37And it happened that, in those days, she became ill and died. And when they had washed her, they laid her in an upper room. 38Now since Lydda was close to Joppa, the disciples, upon hearing that Peter was there, sent two men to him, asking him: “Do not be slow in coming to us.” 39Then Peter, rising up, went with them. And when he had arrived, they led him to an upper room. And all the widows were standing around him, weeping and showing him the tunics and garments that Dorcas had made for them. 40And when they had all been sent outside, Peter, kneeling down, prayed. And turning to the body, he said: “Tabitha, arise.” And she opened her eyes and, upon seeing Peter, sat up again. 41And offering her his hand, he lifted her up. And when he had called in the saints and the widows, he presented her alive. 42Now this became known throughout all of Joppa. And many believed in the Lord.

(1Cor10:31) 31Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever else you may do, do everything for the glory of God.

(Eph6:18) 18Through every kind of prayer and supplication, pray at all times in spirit, and so be vigilant with every kind of earnest supplication, for all the saints,

(Colossians4:2) 2Pursue prayer. Be watchful in prayer with acts of thanksgiving.

(1Thess5:17-18) 17Pray without ceasing. 18Give thanks in everything. For this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for all of you.

(Ja1:5-6) 5But if anyone among you is in need of wisdom, let him petition God, who gives abundantly to all without reproach, and it shall be given to him. 6But he should ask with faith, doubting nothing. For he who doubts is like a wave on the ocean, which is moved about by the wind and carried away;

(Ja5:14-20) 14Is anyone ill among you? Let him bring in the priests of the Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15And a prayer of faith will save the infirm, and the Lord will alleviate him. And if he has sins, these will be forgiven him. 16Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be saved. For the unremitting prayer of a just person prevails over many things. 17Elijah was a mortal man like us, and in prayer he prayed that it would not rain upon the earth. And it did not rain for three years and six months. 18And he prayed again. And the heavens gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit. 19My brothers, if anyone of you strays from the truth, and if someone converts him, 20he ought to know that whoever causes a sinner to be converted from the error of his ways will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.

(1Jn3:22-24) 22and whatever we shall request of him, we shall receive from him. For we keep his commandments, and we do the things that are pleasing in his sight. 23And this is his commandment: that we should believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as he has commanded us. 24And those who keep his commandments abide in him, and he in them. And we know that he abides in us by this: by the Spirit, whom he has given to us.

(1Jn5:14-15) 14And this is the confidence which we have toward God: that no matter what we shall request, in accord with his will, he hears us. 15And we know that he hears us, no matter what we request; so we know that we can obtain the things that we request of him.
