Earlier I had made a request about trauma related statistics, she then cited statistics on them as a “refutation” to my _request_.
+I give thanks to my God+ (He is mine, as I am His) +over my whole memory of you; always in each request of mine on behalf of you all forming and expressing+ (_poioumenos_ ) +that+ (_tên_) +request with joy+;
My main request is that you remain cautious about engaging in speculation, rumor, or hearsay accounts of the case.
Walsh says what matters more than the request is the response.
But I think if you actually say you are going to comply with a request, you should do it whether or not the request is actually enforced.
