This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. - 1 John 5:14

And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him. - 1 John 5:15

Hear the supplications of your servant and of your people Israel when they pray toward this place. Hear from heaven, your dwelling place; and when you hear, forgive. - 2 Chronicles 6:21

My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. - John 17:15

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. - Mark 11:24

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:6-7
