1 John 5:15

And if we know (kai ean oidamen).
Condition of first class with ean (usually ei) and the perfect active indicative, assumed as true. See 1 Thessalonians 3:8; Acts 8:31 for the indicative with ean as in the papyri. "An amplification of the second limitation" (D. Smith).

Whatsoever we ask (o ean aitwmeta).
Indefinite relative clause with modal ean (=an) and the present middle (as for ourselves) subjunctive of aitew. This clause, like hmwn, is also the object of akouei.

We know that we have (oidamen oti exomen).
Repetition of oidamen, the confidence of possession by anticipation.

The petitions (ta aithmata).
Old word, from aitew, requests, here only in John, elsewhere in N.T. Luke 23:24; Philippians 4:6. We have the answer already as in Mark 11:24.

We have asked (hithkamen).
Perfect active indicative of aitew, the asking abiding.
