Prayer - The pray-er should feel free to make Requests of God, which, according to biblical material is equivalent to letting God know the desires of one's heart (see Job 6:8 ; Psalm 21:2 ; Philippians 4:6 ). The human questions (Genesis 15:2,8 ), Requests guidance (Exodus 5:22-23 ; 32:11-13 ), complains (Numbers 11:1-15 ), reasons (Genesis 18:23 ), and bargains (Genesis 28:20-22 ). Indeed, by giving the disciples the paradigm prayer with the address "Our Father, " Jesus invited his followers to share in the same relationship with God he had, for it was customary in the Judaism of that time for individual religious groups to be united and characterized by a particular prayer (hence the disciples' Request in Luke 11:1 ). God can let himself be determined by the pray-er and grant what is asked for or, because God is Person, he can refuse the petitioner and deny the Request. (The very notion of "petition" or "request" implies this. But while this belief is presupposed by those who pray and teach about prayer in the Gospels and the New Testament church, in two prominent cases God's will is precisely not changed by human petitioning: in Jesus' Gethsemane prayer and in Paul's thrice-prayed Request to have his "thorn in the flesh" removed. We have already implied it by noting that God maintains the prerogative of denying the pray-er's Request. Such remembrances establish the ground on which a Request can be made and guide the petitioner to make appropriate Requests. By so praying, we also guard against the self-centered Request for personal gain, away from which biblical prayer seems to move, at least in the New Testament. The precise meaning of the Spirit's role in Romans 8:26-27 is variously interpreted, though it is usually associated with the regulation and purification of our Requests as the interpreter of the mind of God. Some argue that these parables teach perseverance in a Request until either our wills or the circumstances of our lives are altered

Guest - ...
It should be noted here that the Request of Jesus to the Samaritan woman, ‘Give me to drink’ (John 4:7), was virtually, according to Eastern ideas, a claim on her hospitality, and in ordinary circumstances it would have been recognized and responded to at once. Her astonishment at the Request reminds us that between Jew and Samaritan there was no recognition of the law of hospitality (cf
Harvest - Ruth had not proposed to Naomi, her mother-in-law, to go to the field, and glean after the reapers; nor had the servant of Boaz, to whom she applied for leave, so readily granted her Request, if gleaning had not been a common practice in that country. These opinions receive some countenance from the Request which Ruth presented to the servant of Boaz, to permit her to glean "among the sheaves;" and from the charge of Boaz to his young men, "Let her glean even among the sheaves;" a mode of speaking which seems to insinuate that though they could not legally hinder Ruth from gleaning in the field, they had a right, if they chose to exercise it, to prohibit her from gleaning among the sheaves, or immediately after the reapers
John Carroll - In 1776, at the Request of the Continental Congress, he accompanied Charles Carroll, Benjamin Franklin, and Samuel Chase on a mission to Canada in a vain endeavor to secure the cooperation, or the neutrality, of that country in the Revolution

Solomon - " (Zechariah 6:13)...
But when we have looked at Solomon, king of Israel, as in those and the like instances, as becoming a lively type of the ever-blessed Jesus, and see in our Lord Jesus Christ a greater than Solomon in every one, I would Request the reader to detach from the person and character of David's son all that belongs not to him in those Scriptures, and particularly in the book of the Psalms, which are as if directed to him and spoken of him, but certainly with him have nothing to do

Solomon’s love for lavish religious ceremony also led him into trouble (1 Kings 3:3-4), but his Request for wisdom won God’s approval (1 Kings 3:5-14)
Gift, Giving - In other cases the return is of a less material character, consisting of the granting of a Request or the restoring of favour. Its acceptance was the sign of favour and of the granting of the Request ( Judges 13:23 , 2 Chronicles 7:1 ); its rejection, of disfavour ( Genesis 4:4 , Malachi 1:10 )
pe'Ter - At the last supper Peter seems to have been particularly earnest in the Request that the traitor might be pointed out. Origen says that Peter felt himself to be unworthy to be put to death in the same manner as his Master, and was therefore, at his own Request, crucified with his head downward
Temptation - His words to His mother in Cana (John 2:4) are explicable only if in her Request He found a suggestion of evil, that He should use His miraculous power at the bidding of His natural affection instead of at God’s command alone. May His refusal of the Request of the Syrophœnician woman (Matthew 15:24-27) not have been due to the fear lest a ministry of healing among the Gentiles might divert Him from the path of sacrifice to which He knew that His Father called Him? The Request of the Greeks also (John 12:21) stirred so deep emotion, because it seemed to suggest the possibility of an escape from the Cross, which had to be rejected as a temptation

Prayer (2) - The third (which frequently means to ask a question), when used of making Requests, generally asks a person to do something (Mark 7:26, Luke 8:37, John 4:40; John 4:47; John 14:16; John 17:15; John 16:23-24). The fourth indicates a simple Request to give something (Matthew 7:7-11, Luke 11:9-13, John 14:13-14), the middle voice sometimes adding intensity to the Request. That men ‘ought always to pray and not to faint’ was evidently a marked feature in His teaching, and it appears in three different forms: (1) On two occasions, apparently, once spontaneously (Matthew 6:5-15), and once at the Request of a disciple (Luke 11:14), Christ gave His followers a definite form of prayer. Any Request which is consistent with His character and office, as represented by His name, may be made to His Father, with confidence that the prayer will be heard (John 15:7; John 15:16). Both Requests were made in spiritual ignorance. But even where this worship is accompanied by a Request that He would cleanse a leper (Matthew 8:2) or raise the dead (Matthew 9:18), this act of prostration does not necessarily imply more than that He was regarded as a great prophet (1 Kings 18:7, Daniel 2:46)

Foolishness - The parable (Luke 12:16-21) was inspired by a Request which showed to Christ a heart so absorbed in thought of material good that it could not listen to His message
Naaman - He also Requested the prophet, that he might have two mules' load of earth to carry home with him from the land of Israel, most probably intending to build an altar with it in his own country; which seems, indeed, to be implied in the reason with which he enforces his Request: "Shall there not, I pray thee, be given to thy servant two mules' burden of earth; for thy servant will henceforth offer neither burnt-offering nor sacrifice to other gods but unto Jehovah

"Paul was the common friend of the parties at variance; he must conciliate a man who had good reason to be offended; he must commend the offender, yet neither deny nor aggravate the fault; he must assert Christian equality in the face of a system which hardly recognized the humanity of the slave; he could have placed the question on the ground of his own personal rights, yet must waive them to secure an act of spontaneous kindness; his success must be a triumph of love, and nothing be demanded for the sake of the justice which could have claimed everything; he limits his Request to a forgiveness of the wrong and g restoration to favor, yet so guards his words as to leave scope for all the generosity which benevolence might prompt toward one whose condition admitted of so much alleviation

Joannes Talaia, Bishop of Nola - He obtained an edict from the emperor complying with this Request (Evagr
Lord's Prayer (ii) - ’s version being regarded as two separate Requests. ’ The petition is that we may not be brought into temptation, but may be delivered from the Tempter; and these are two aspects of the selfsame Request. For the prayer for bread naturally suggests the Request of the child to the Father, the prayer for forgiveness the petition of the subject to the King, and the prayer for deliverance from the Tempter the cry of one who feels in the presence of the world’s evil his utter dependence upon the strong and holy will of his Master and Lord. But it also reminds us that if we are the children of the heavenly Father, His home is the true home of our souls, and that, as always, so especially when we bow before His throne with our Requests, we must set our mind on the things that are above. The prayer is not to be spiritualized, with most of the Fathers, into a Request for the Bread of Life; it is literal bread, bread for bodily sustenance, that Jesus means us to ask for. Apart from Requests of a personal and particular kind, everything that the universal Christian heart need ask for is explicitly stated or implicitly enfolded here, whether things on earth or things in heaven, things human or Divine, things of the body or the spirit, things of the life that now is or of that which is to come. It teaches us that we are not heard for our much speaking, that long and elaborate prayers are unnecessary, that a simple Request like that of a child to a father is enough. The earthly has its claims, but the heavenly comes before it; and all Requests must be made in subordination to the Divine will. And Jesus justified the Request by replying, ‘When ye pray, say, Our Father,’ etc. ’ The invocation is addressed to ‘our Father,’ the Requests are on behalf of others as well as ourselves: ‘give us,’ ‘forgive us,’ ‘bring us not,’ ‘deliver us
Septuagint - According to one account, Ptolemy Philadelphus, king of Egypt, caused this translation to be made for the use of the library which he had founded at Alexandria at the Request and with the advice of the celebrated Demetrius Phalereus, his principal librarian. For this purpose, it is reported, that he sent Aristeas and Andreas, two distinguished officers of his court, to Jerusalem, on an embassy to Eleazar, then high priest of the Jews, to Request of the latter a copy of the Hebrew Scriptures, and that there might also be sent to him seventy-two persons, six chosen out of each of the twelve tribes, who were equally well skilled in the Hebrew and Greek languages. Farther, this version was neither made by the command of Ptolemy, nor at the Request nor under the superintendence of Demetrius Phalereus; but was voluntarily undertaken by the Jews for the use of their countrymen
Questions And Answers - In a few cases the questions are simply Requests for information. ) relates that Christ asked a similar question of Philip on the same occasion, ‘Whence are we to buy loaves, that these may eat?’ But the Evangelist is careful to show that he does not understand this to be simply a Request for information, by adding, ‘And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do. ’ The following is a list of simple Requests for information; it will be noted that they occur mostly in Mk. Again, Jesus often asked questions to lead men to an exact understanding of the circumstances connected with a question addressed to Himself, or with a Request asked of Him: Mark 10:3 (contrast Matthew 19:7) leads to a clear statement of the position of the Mosaic Law in regard to divorce, and enables Christ to contrast with it the higher law of God; Mark 10:38 = Matthew 20:22 corrects the false notions of the sons of Zebedee in regard to the Messianic Kingdom; cf

Lord's Prayer - ...
The Request of one of the disciples ‘Lord, teach us to pray’ (Luke 11:1 ) expresses a desire which doubtless found a place in the hearts of all.

Not seldom, however, there is a more spiritual aim: in Psalms 51:1-19 pardon is sought for its own sake, not to avert punishment, and Psalms 119:1-176 is notable for repeated Requests for inward enlightenment and quickening
Rufinus of Aquileia - That he made the acquaintance of Jerome in early life is shewn by his Request to him when about to go into Gaul, c. They were undertaken in no distinct order, but according to the Request of friends. The preface says it is written in response to repeated Requests of the monks on the Mount of Olives. § 4) grounds upon this with much reason the theory that Petronius, having been in the East, and having received the Request of the Olivetan monks, but having himself, as Gennadius testifies, but little skill in composition, on his return to the West begged Rufinus to write the history. The letter of Anastasius which told him of the rumours against him at Rome and Requested him to come there to clear himself, drew from him the Apologia ad Anastasium , a short document of self-defence not lacking in dignity.

Then, in Haman supposing himself to be the object of honor, and suggesting the highest royal honors (such as Joseph had from the Egyptian king, Genesis 41:43), and thus unwittingly being constrained with his own voice and hand to glorify him whom he had meant to destroy; then in the denouement at the queen's banquet, and Haman's execution on the very gallows he erected for Haman (Psalms 7:14-16); and the consequent preservation from extinction of the holy race of whom Messiah must spring according to prophecy, and of whom Isaiah (Isaiah 54:17) writes, "no weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against thee thou shalt condemn. At the same time Scripture does not hide from us the fact of her not being above the vindictiveness of the age and the country, in her Requesting that Haman's ten sons should be hanged, and a second day given the Jews to take vengeance on the enemies who had sought to kill them
