The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.
O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.
But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer.
He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.
I cried with my whole heart; hear me, O Lord: I will keep thy statutes.
If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
For in thee, O Lord, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.
