The central theme of these verses is prayer: “Ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full” (v 24). Jesus had mentioned prayer many times in His ministry, and He had set the example for prayer in His own life for His followers. In His Upper Room message, Jesus emphasized prayer (John 14:12–14; 15:7, 16; 16:23–26). He made it clear that believing prayer is essential for living an effective Christian life
