Draw on 


In a stirring speech, the headmaster told the boys, “There are hidden reserves of strength and courage in all of us and we can draw on them when the need arises.” 

To draw on means to depend on or bring forth in an emergency. 

“If we do not sight land in another two days we will have to draw on the reserve supplies of water,” the Captain told the sailors.
