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).
