If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.
"If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
But if you stay joined to me and my words remain in you, you may ask any request you like, and it will be granted!
But if you make yourselves at home with me and my words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask will be listened to and acted upon.
If you are in me at all times, and my words are in you, then anything for which you make a request will be done for you.
If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask for whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
"If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

3 sn Once again Jesus promises the disciples ask whatever you want, and it will be done for you. This recalls 14:13-14, where the disciples were promised that if they asked anything in Jesus’ name it would be done for them. The two thoughts are really quite similar, since here it is conditioned on the disciples’ remaining in Jesus and his words remaining in them. The first phrase relates to the genuineness of their relationship with Jesus. The second phrase relates to their obedience. When both of these qualifications are met, the disciples would in fact be asking in Jesus’ name and therefore according to his will.
