We know that God does not listen to a sinner, but if any one is God-fearing and does his will, God hears him.
Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. Make your hands clean, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
If you, though evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him.
For "Every one who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
And now why delay? Rise, be baptized and wash away your sins, calling upon his name.'
13 Whatever you ask in my name that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.
15 "If you love me, you will keep my commands,
16 and I will ask the Father and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever \'97
and to wait for his Son from heaven \'97 his Son Jesus whom he raised from the dead and who is saving us from the coming wrath.
