    Clarke's Commentary on Matthew 21:22

    All things - ye shall ask in prayer, believing - In order to get salvation, there must be,

    1. a conviction of the want of it: this begets,

    2. prayer, or warm desires, in the heart: then

    3. the person asks, i.e. makes use of words expressive of his wants and wishes:

    4. believes the word of promise, relative to the fulfillment of his wants: and

    5. receives, according to the merciful promise of God, the salvation which his soul requires.

    Barnes' Notes on Matthew 21:22

    And all things ... - He adds an encouragement for them to pray, assuring them that they should have all things which they asked.

    This promise was evidently a special one, given to them in regard to working miracles. To them it was true, but it is manifest that we have no right to apply this promise to ourselves. It was desired especially for the apostles; nor have we a right to turn it from its original meaning. There are other promises in, abundance on which we "may" rely in prayer, with confident assurance that our prayers will be heard. Compare the notes at Matthew 7:7-11.
