And whatever you may ask in My name, that I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If you ask anything in My name, I will do [it].
24 Do you not know that those running in a race all run, but one receives the prize? So run, that you may obtain.
25 And everyone who strives for the mastery is temperate in all things. Then those truly that they may receive a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible.
26 So then I run, not as if I were uncertain. And so I fight, not as [one who] beats the air.
27 But I buffet my body, and lead [it] captive, lest proclaiming to others I myself might be rejected.
Be strong and of a good courage. Do not fear nor be afraid of them. For the LORD your God [is] He who goes with you. He will not fail you nor forsake you.
And whatever you do, do [it] heartily, as to the Lord and not to men;
For it is God who works in you both to will and to do of [His] good pleasure.
Whatever your hand finds to do, do [it] with all your might; for [there is] no work, nor plan, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave where you go.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
29 [He] gives power to the weary; and to him with no vigor; He increases strength.
30 Even the young shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall;
31 but those who wait on the 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.
My brothers, I do not count myself to have taken possession, but one [thing I do], forgetting the things behind and reaching forward to the things before,
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
For I know the purposes which I am purposing for you, says the LORD; purposes of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
1 Therefore since we also are surrounded with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily besets [us], and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2 looking to Jesus the Author and Finisher of [our] faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured [the] cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right of the throne of God.
3 For consider Him who endured such contradiction of sinners against Himself, lest you be weary and faint in your minds.
And do not seek what you shall eat, nor what you shall drink, and stop being in anxiety.
For all these things the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you have need of these things.
A thousand shall fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; it shall not come near you.
Therefore go 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, whatever I commanded you. And, behold, I am with you all the days until the end of the world. Amen.
10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this, that if anyone would not work, neither should he eat.
11 For we hear that there are some who walk disorderly among you, not working at all, but being busybodies.
12 Now we command and exhort those who are such, by our Lord Jesus Christ, that they work with quietness and eat their own bread.
13 But you, brothers, do not be weary in well doing.
I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul will be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me [with] the robes of salvation, He covered me with the robe of righteousness like a bridegroom adorns [himself] with ornaments, and like a bride adorns [herself] with her jewels.
