I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “request…”.

Jdg 8:24 And Gideon said unto them,
I would desire a request of you,
that ye would give me every man the earrings of his prey.
(For they had golden earrings,
because they were Ishmaelites.)

Jdg 8:26 And the weight of the golden earrings that
he requested was a thousand
and seven hundred shekels of gold;
beside ornaments, and collars,
and purple raiment that was on the kings of Midian,
and beside the chains that were about their camels’ necks.

2Sa 14:15 Now therefore that I am come
to speak of this thing unto my lord the king,
it is because the people have made me afraid:
and thy handmaid said, I will now speak unto the king;
it may be that the king will perform
the request of his handmaid.

2Sa 14:22 And Joab fell to the ground on his face,
and bowed himself,
and thanked the king:
and Joab said, To day thy servant knoweth that
I have found grace in thy sight, my lord, O king,
in that the king hath fulfilled the request of his servant.

1Ki 19:4 But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness,
and came and sat down under a juniper tree:
and he requested for himself that he might die;
and said, It is enough;
now, O LORD, take away my life; for
I am not better than my fathers.

1Ch 4:10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying,
Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed,
and enlarge my coast,
and that thine hand might be with me,
and that thou wouldest keep me from evil,
that it may not grieve me!
And God granted him that which he requested.

Ezr 7:6 This Ezra went up from Babylon;
and he was a ready scribe in the law of Moses,
which the LORD God of Israel had given:
and the king granted him all his request,
according to the hand of the LORD his God upon him.

Neh 2:4 Then the king said unto me,
For what dost thou make request?
So I prayed to the God of heaven.

Est 4:8 Also he gave him the copy of the writing of the decree
that was given at Shushan to destroy them,
to shew it unto Esther,
and to declare it unto her,
and to charge her that she should go in unto the king,
to make supplication unto him,
and to make request before him for her people.

Est 5:3 Then said the king unto her,
What wilt thou, queen Esther?
and what is thy request?
it shall be even given thee to the half of the kingdom.

Est 5:6 And the king said unto Esther at the banquet of wine,
What is thy petition?
and it shall be granted thee:
and what is thy request?
even to the half of the kingdom it shall be performed.

Est 5:7 Then answered Esther,
and said, My petition and my request is;

Est 5:8 If I have found favour in the sight of the king,
and if it please the king to grant my petition,
and to perform my request,
let the king and Haman come to the banquet
that I shall prepare for them,
and I will do to morrow as the king hath said.

Est 7:2 And the king said again unto Esther
on the second day at the banquet of wine,
What is thy petition, queen Esther?
and it shall be granted thee:
and what is thy request?
and it shall be performed,
even to the half of the kingdom.

Est 7:3 Then Esther the queen answered and said,
If I have found favour in thy sight, O king,
and if it please the king,
let my life be given me at my petition,
and my people at my request:

Est 7:7 And the king arising from the banquet of wine
in his wrath went into the palace garden:
and Haman stood up to make request
for his life to Esther the queen;
for he saw that there was evil
determined against him by the king.

Est 9:12 And the king said unto Esther the queen,
The Jews have slain and destroyed
five hundred men in Shushan the palace,
and the ten sons of Haman;
what have they done in the rest of the king’s provinces?
now what is thy petition?
and it shall be granted thee:
or what is thy request further?
and it shall be done.

Job 6:8 Oh that I might have my request;
and that God would grant me
the thing that I long for!

Psa 21:2 Thou hast given him his heart’s desire,
and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.

Psa 106:15 And he gave them their request;
but sent leanness into their soul.

Dan 1:8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that
he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat,
nor with the wine which he drank:
therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs
that he might not defile himself.

Dan 2:49 Then Daniel requested of the king,
and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego,
over the affairs of the province of Babylon:
but Daniel sat in the gate of the king.

Rom 1:10 Making request, if by any means now at length
I might have a prosperous journey
by the will of God to come unto you.

Phi 1:4 Always in every prayer of mine for you
all making request with joy,

5. For your fellowship in the gospel
from the first day until now;
6. Being confident of this very thing,
that he which hath begun a good work
in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
7. Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all,
because I have you in my heart;
inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence
and confirmation of the gospel,
ye all are partakers of my grace.

Phi 4:6 Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known unto God.
