Do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.
He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.
I love the LORD, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.
In your distress you called and I rescued you.
I call out to the Lord, and he answers me from his holy mountain. Answer me when I call to you, my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; have mercy on me and hear my prayer. … I call on the Lord in my distress, and he answers me. … LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me. … You heard my cry
Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. … And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
The Lord detests the sacrifice of the wicked, but the prayer of the upright pleases him. … He hears the prayer of the righteous.
Beware of the teachers of the law. … They … for a show make lengthy prayers. These men will be punished most severely.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
