And whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If ye ask any thing in my name, I will do [it].
24 Know ye not that those who run in a race indeed all run, but one receives the prize? So run, that ye may obtain [it].
25 And every man that strives for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they [do it] to obtain a corruptible crown, but we, an incorruptible [one].
26 I therefore so run, not as unto an uncertain thing; so I fight, not as one that beats the air;
27 but I keep my body under, and bring [it] into subjection, lest preaching to others, I myself should become reprobate.:
Be strong and of a good courage; fear not, nor be afraid of them, for the LORD thy God is he that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee nor forsake thee.
And whatever ye do, do [it] heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men,
For it is God who works in you both to will and to do of [his] good pleasure.
Whatever thy hand finds to do, do [it] with [all] thy might, for [there is] no work nor device nor knowledge nor wisdom in Sheol, where thou goest.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
29 He gives power to the faint; and to [those that have] no might he increases strength.
30 The young men faint and are weary; the children stumble and fall;
31 but those that wait for the LORD shall have new strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint.:
Brethren, I do not reckon to have laid hold of [it] yet, but [this] one thing [I do], forgetting those things which are behind and extending myself unto those things which are ahead,
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
For I know the thoughts that I think concerning you, said the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you the end that you wait for.
1 Therefore, seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, leaving behind all the weight of the sin which surrounds us, let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2 with our eyes fixed on Jesus, the author and finisher of [our] faith, who having been offered joy, endured the stake, despising the shame and was seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself lest ye be wearied in your souls and faint.
And seek not what ye shall eat or what ye shall drink, neither be ye high minded.
For all these things do the Gentiles of the world seek after, and your Father knows that ye have need of these things.
Thousands shall fall at thy side and ten thousands at thy right hand, [but] it shall not come near thee.
Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and, behold, I am with you always [even] unto the end of the age. Amen.:
10 For even when we were with you, this we declared unto you, that if anyone desires not to work neither should he eat.
11 For we hear that there are some who walk among you out of order, not working at all, but are busybodies.
12 Now those that are such, we charge and exhort in our Lord Jesus Christ, that working with quietness, they eat their bread.
13 But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.
I will greatly rejoice in the LORD; my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he has clothed me with the garments of saving health; he has surrounded me with the robe of righteousness; as a bridegroom he has arrayed me, and as a bride made up of his jewels.
