Dear Friend in the Lord,

Asking God for our Needs” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus assures His disciples, “Anything you ask from the Father, He will grant in My Name.”  Ponder on, “Will God our Father give us ‘everything’ we ask?  What if what we ask is not good for our salvation?  We need to discern more carefully before we ask anything from God.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 16:23b-28

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘I tell you most solemnly, anything you ask for from the Father he will grant in my name. Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and so your joy will be complete. I have been telling you all this  in metaphors; the hour is coming when I shall no longer speak to you in metaphors, but tell you about the Father in plain words.

‘When that day comes you will ask in my name; and I do not say that I shall pray to the Father for you, because the Father himself loves you for loving me, and believing that I came from God. I came from the Father and have come into the world and now I am leaving the world to go to the Father.’
