10"For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and return not thither but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,11so shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
Psalms 34:4-7, 16-19
3O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together!4I sought the LORD, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears.5Look to him, and be radiant; so your faces shall never be ashamed.6This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.15The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous, and his ears toward their cry.16The face of the LORD is against evildoers, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.17When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles.18The LORD is near to the brokenhearted, and saves the crushed in spirit.
7"And in praying do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their many words.8Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.9Pray then like this: Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.10Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.11Give us this day our daily bread;12And forgive us our debts, As we also have forgiven our debtors;13And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil.14For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you;15but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
