But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities. And he [Jesus often WU] withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed. Lk 5:15-16 (Click gold Scripture references for Principle Interrelations)

But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. Mat 6:7-8

And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought [anything] against any[one]: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses [sins WU]. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses. Mk 11:25-26

And he said unto them, Which of you shall [suppose you WU] have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; For a friend of mine in [from] his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him? And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give [to] thee. say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity [persistence] he will rise and give him as many as he needeth. And I say unto you, Ask [keep asking], and it shall be given you; seek [keep seeking], and ye shall find; knock [keep knocking], and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for [instead of WU] a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being [although you are WU] evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?[!

And he [Jesus WU] spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint [give up]; Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded [cared about WU] man: And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of [give me justice against WU] mine adversary. And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; Yet because this widow troubleth [keeps on bothering WU] me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect [chosen ones], which cry [out] day and night unto him, though he bear long with [will he delay helping WU] them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? Lk 18:1-8 Pray with faith.

Pray that ye enter not into temptation. Lk 22:40

Holy Father, keep through [the power of WU] thine own name those whom thou hast given me, [so WU] that they may be one, as we are [one WU]. ........ Sanctify them [set them apart WU] through thy truth: thy word is truth. ........ Neither pray I for these alone [only], but for them also which shall believe on me through their word [message WU]; That they all may be one; [just WU] as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. Jh 17:11-21

Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself [on my own WU]: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works [it is he doing his work WU]. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake [because of the miracles WU]. Verily, verily [most assuredly], I say unto you, He that believeth on [in] me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. Mat 21:21-22 If you have believe and do not doubt, what you ask will be done.

Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching [concerning] any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of [by] my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. Mat 18:19-20. God honors our agreement in Christ.
