Power in Prayer

This week we are continuing in our unit of prayer. This week we are digging into the topic of power in prayer. I will try on a weekly basis to post some thought provoking questions, when possible.

Read the passages from our lesson:
John 14:12-14
John 15:14-16
John 16:23-26

Now look at these particular phrases:
14:13 "And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son."

15:16"You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you."

16:23 “And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you."

I added emphasis on parts for the question to follow.

Sometime we may wonder why prayer is unanswered....

Q: Do these verses imply that we can ask for ANYTHING of God and expect to get them? Why or why not? What in these passages lead you to that?
