I am the vine, you are the branches...
Jesus tells us that we are united to Him as the branch is connected to the vine. We are to remain in Him and then we will bear fruit. Without Him we can do nothing. On the other hand, if we just remain in Him and His words remain in us, we are told that we can ask for whatever we want and it will be done for us. "By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples."
The second reading from the first Letter of John reminds us that "God is greater than our hearts and knows everything. Beloved, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence in God and receive from him whatever we ask, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him."
Let us remain in His Love today and always! It is a grace to pray for, but Jesus waits for us to ask.
