“The LORD is far from the wicked: but [HE HEARETH THE PRAYER OF THE RIGHTEOUS]” (Proverbs 15:29).
“For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright” (Psalm 11:7). “The LORD liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness” (Jeremiah 4:2).
Our Lord Jesus Christ says: “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must [WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH]. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the [TRUE WORSHIPPERS SHALL WORSHIP THE FATHER IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH]: for the Father seeketh such to worship him” (John 4:24, 23).
“[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]” (Matthew 6:6).
“[WHEN YE PRAY, USE NOT VAIN REPETITIONS], as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: [FOR YOUR FATHER KNOWETH WHAT THINGS YE HAVE NEED OF, BEFORE YE ASK HIM]” (Matthew 6:7-8).
Let us also be reminded how the Apostle Paul said: “P R A Y without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).
In GLORY of the FATHER, the SON and the HOLY SPIRIT. Amen.
