1 Chronicles 16:11
Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.
Answer me when I call to you, O my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; be merciful to me and hear my prayer.
The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
The LORD is far from the wicked but he hears the prayer of the righteous.
If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!
One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.
Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
1 Thessalonians 5:17
1 Timothy 2:8
I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing.
Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.
That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord;
When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
