Daily Word Of God

John 16:23b-28

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘In all truth I tell you, anything you ask from the Father he will grant in my name. Until now you have not asked anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and so your joy will be complete. I have been telling you these things in veiled language. The hour is coming when I shall no longer speak to you in veiled language 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.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • In today’s Gospel, Jesus assures us, “In truth I tell you, anything you ask from the Father He will grant in my name.”  Jesus is emphasizing His “oneness” and perfect union and with His Father.


  • We will receive all the graces we need if we ask God the Father through Jesus. For Jesus says that “the Father himself loves you for loving me.”


  • Let us remember Jesus is our Saviour. We are to live daily the Will of His Father who has given us the gift of life on earth and eternal life in heaven through His Son and the Spirit. Let us continue to seek and live the Father’s Will daily.
