John 14:13 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name," (kai hoti an aitesete en to onomati mou) "And whatever you all ask in my name," by my authority, in harmony with my will, as my obedient children, 1Jn 3:22; 1Jn 5:14. One is to use His name only to enforce or advance His interest not for one's selfish purpose.

2) "That will I do," (touto poieso) "This I will do;" My Father will recognize my claim to His Divinity by answering prayer that is earnestly and honestly offered in my name, Col 3:17; Mat 7:7-8. But you are to ask in faith, believing, uncovetously, Jas 1:6; Jas 4:2-3.

3) "That the Father may be glorified in the Son." (hina doksasthe ho pater en to huio) "In order that the Father may be glorified in the Son," as certified Joh 14:31; He will be glorified in the fruit that you all bear through faith in and service to me, Joh 15:8. The asking must be for the advancement of the purpose for which God sent His Son into the world.
