Matthew 6:5-13 "5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites: for they love to pray standing
in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward.6
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret;
and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen:
for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth
what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed
be thy name.10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as in heaven.11 Give us this day our daily bread.12 And forgive
us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen"

Matthew 7:7-11 "7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened unto you:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that
knocketh it shall be opened.9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?10 Or if he
ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much
more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?"

in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.7 Thou my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble;
thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah"
Mark 11:12-24 "12 And on the morrow, when
they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he find any
thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not.14 And Jesus answered and
said unto it, no man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard.15 And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus
went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers,
and the seats of them that sold doves;16 And would not suffer that any man carry vessel through the temple.17 And he taught,
saying unto them, Is it not written: My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den
of thieves.18 And the scribes and chief priests heard [it], and sought how they destroy him: for they feared him, because
all the people was astonished at his doctrine.19 And when even was come, he went out of the city.20 And in the morning, as
they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.21 And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master,
behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.23 For
verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall
not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he
saith.24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive, and ye shall have"

A daily prayer of my soul: "Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me in distress.
Have mercy upon me and hear my prayer for I weak: heal me;
for my bones are vexed. Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon
me; for I desolate and afflicted. Hear, O LORD, I cry with my voice:
and answer me, be thou my helper for I am in trouble: mine eye
is consumed with grief, my soul and my belly. Have mercy upon
me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions"
"Praying always with all prayer and supplication in
the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints"
God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve
the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
