THEREFORE I TELL YOU, WHATEVER YOU ASK FOR IN PRAYER, BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED IT, AND IT WILL BE YOURS (MARK 11:24). IS ANYONE AMONG YOU IN TROUBLE? LET THEM PRAY. IS ANYONE HAPPY? LET THEM SING SONGS OF PRAISE (JAMES 5:13).
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you (Matthew 5:44). And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words (Matthew 6:7).
