John 16:26 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "At that day ye shall ask in my name:" (en ekeine te hemera en to onomati mou aitesesthe) "in that day you will ask in my name," after that the Holy Spirit is sent to indwell and empower and anoint you all, as a church people, Joh 14:16-17; Luk 24:49; Act 4:12; 1Jn 2:20; 1Jn 2:27; Joh 15:16.

2) "And I say not unto you," (kai ou lego humin) "And I tell you not," for it is not even necessary; I do not press the issue that to ask in my name is the only reason your prayers will be answered, for the Father has intense love for you also.

3) "That I will pray the Father for you" (hoti ego eroteso ton patera peri humon) "That I will request the Father concerning you all," for I have already told you this, Joh 14:16-17; Joh 16:7. For I will pray to Him who loves both you and Me, and I will advocate or intercede on your behalf, Heb 7:25; 1Jn 2:1-2.
