    It could just mean agree to consider any request.
    What's the broader context?

    Hello,

    the phrase "accept any request" is found at the very end of the following paragraph:


    Jesus mentioned to St. faustina that "During the hour of mercy, I [Jesus] will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of me in virtue of my passion". This promise of Jesus is telling us that a prayer during the hour of mercy, submitted by a pious and devout sharer of the passion of Christ, will be heard by Jesus and that Jesus will surely accept (not refuse) any request that such a prayer contains.


    Does the phrase "accept any request" in this context mean that "agreeing to grant any request"?

    thank you,
