Daily Word Of God

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.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

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

  • Do you approach God confidently to ask Him for the things you need? God is all mercy and love and we can be certain of His promises to hear and grant us our prayers.


  • In today’s Gospel Jesus assures His disciples in plain words that “The Father Himself loves you for loving me” We will surely experience our Father’s loving care in all our needs when we are able to love Jesus His Son more fully.


  • One of the reasons why we feel our prayers are not answered by God is because we are not connected and personally united with Our Lord in our daily living and prayers. Ponder on this truth, in your daily living.
