And if we know that He hears us

Go to footnote number

if we ask for something, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of Him.


If we can have confidence that He pays attention to what we ask Him, if we choose to ask Him for something (as described above), we can also have confidence that we will receive that which we requested from Him.


1: "if we know"

I use an “if” statement in the translation because that is what the Greek uses, but I have chosen to use a “because” statement in the paraphrase since we know the result. The emphasis of the statement is the confidence we can have in this matter.
