But know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for himself:
the Lord will hear when I call unto him.
Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray,
and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.
To the chief Musician upon Nehiloth, A Psalm of David.
Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
The Lord is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law,
even his prayer shall be abomination.
With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea,
with my spirit within me will I seek thee early:
for when thy judgments are in the earth,
the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
Seek ye the Lord while he may be found,
call ye upon him while he is near:
And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer;
and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit,
and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith,
praying in the Holy Ghost,
