Praying in the Holy Spirit.
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. § We … have access by one Spirit to the Father.
O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.
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. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. § This is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. § When He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth.
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication.

There is hope for a tree, if it is cut down,
that it will sprout again, and that its tender
shoots will not cease.
A bruised reed He will not break. § He restores my soul.
Godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death. § No chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep Your word. § After all that has come upon us for our evil deeds and for our great guilt, since You our God have punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and have given us such deliverance as this.
Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall, I will arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me … He will bring me forth to the light; I will see His righteousness.
