And anything whatever ye may ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If ye will ask me anything in my name, I will do it.
24 Know ye not that those who run in an arena, indeed all run, but one receives the prize? So run that ye may seize it.
25 And every man who strives for mastery exercises self-control in all things. Indeed therefore those men do it so that they might obtain a perishable crown, but we an imperishable.
26 I therefore run this way, not as aimlessly. I fight this way, not as flaying air.
27 But I give my body a black eye and subdue it, lest somehow having preached to others, I myself might become disqualified.
Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be frightened at them, for LORD thy God, he it is who goes with thee. He will not leave thee, nor forsake thee.
And all things, anything whatever ye may do, work from soul as to the Lord and not to men,
For it is God who works in you both to desire and to work for approval.
Whatever thy hand finds to do, do with thy might, for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in Sheol, where thou go.
I can do all things in the Christ who strengthens me.
29 He gives power to the faint. And to him who has no might he increases strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall.
31 But those who wait for LORD shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as eagles. They shall run, and not be weary. They shall walk, and not faint.
Brothers, I reckon myself not to have seized, but one thing, indeed forgetting the things behind, and reaching forward to the things ahead,
I press forward toward the goal for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope in your latter end.
1 Therefore we also, having so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, having put off every weight and cleverly entangling sin, let us run by perseverance the contest being set before us.
2 Looking to Jesus the pathfinder and perfecter of the faith, who, against the joy set before him, endured a cross, having despised the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 For consider the man who endured such hostility against him by sinners, so that ye may not be weary in your souls, being disheartened.
And do not seek what ye may eat, and what ye may drink, and do not be unsettled.
For the nations of the world seek all these things, and your Father knows that ye have need of these things.
A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand, [but] it shall not come near thee.
After going, make ye disciples of all the nations, immersing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all things, as many as I commanded you. And lo, I am with you all the days, until the end of the age. Truly.
10 For even when we were with you we commanded you this, that if any man will not work, neither let him eat.
11 For we hear of some who walk among you disorderly, not working at all, but being busybodies.
12 Now to such men we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that, working with quietness, they should eat their own bread.
13 But ye, brothers, do not become weary doing good.
I will greatly rejoice in LORD. My soul shall be joyful in my God, for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation. He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride
