“Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.”
King James Version (KJV)
16:24 Hitherto ye have asked nothing in my name - For they had asked him directly for all they wanted.
Joh 16:24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name. Before, when they prayed, he told them to say, "Our Father" (Mt 6:9 Lu 11:2). Now they must pray in the name of the ascended Lord.
