And when he had said these things, he knelt down and prayed with them all.
I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
