CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
This is the confidence - Παρῥησια, The liberty of access and speech, that if we ask any thing according to his will, that is, which he has promised in his word. His word is a revelation of his will, in the things which concern the salvation of man.

Faith and prayer are not boldly to advance claims upon God; we must take heed that what we ask and believe for is agreeable to the revealed will of God. What we find promised, that we may plead.

He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.
What the wicked dread will overtake them; what the righteous desire will be granted.
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
1 John 2:28
And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming.
