From God's Word
In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me.
The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
The Lord will respond to the prayer of the destitute; he will not despise their plea.
Cast all your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you.
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.
For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit helps us in our weakness, he intercedes for us when our words fail us.
