In everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving,
let your requests be made known to God.
I love the Lord, because He has heard My voice and my supplications. Because He has inclined His ear to me, therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live.
When you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words. § The Spirit … helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. § Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.
If two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.
Phil. 4:6; Ps. 116:1–2; Matt. 6:7; Rom. 8:26; 1 Tim. 2:8; Eph. 6:18; Matt. 18:19
All Your works shall praise You, O Lord,
and Your saints shall bless You.
Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits. § I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. § Every day I will bless You, and I will praise Your name forever and ever.
Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You. Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.
My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.
You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.
Ps. 145:10; 103:1–2; 34:1; 145:2; 63:3–5; Luke 1:46–47; Rev. 4:11
