uplifting thoughts and inspiration on faith
2 Samuel 22:4-7 I call on the Lord, Who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies. For the waves of death enveloped me; the torrents of destruction made me afraid. The cords of Sheol were entangling me; I encountered the snares of death. In my distress I called upon the Lord; I cried to my God, and He heard my voice from His temple; my cry came into His ears.
2 Kings 20:1-6
In those days Hezekiah became deadly ill. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came and said to him, Thus says the Lord: Set your house in order, for you shall die; you shall not recover.
Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, saying, I beseech You, O Lord, [earnestly] remember now how I have walked before You in faithfulness and truth and with a whole heart [entirely devoted to You] and have done what is good in Your sight. And Hezekiah wept bitterly.
Before Isaiah had gone out of the middle court, the word of the Lord came to him: Turn back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of My people, Thus says the Lord, the God of David your [forefather]: I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; behold, I will heal you. On the third day you shall go up to the house of the Lord. I will add to your life fifteen years and deliver you and this city [Jerusalem] out of the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city for My own sake and for My servant David’s sake.
Psalm 66:16-20 Come and hear, all you who reverently and worshipfully fear God, and I will declare what He has done for me! I cried aloud to Him; He was extolled and high praise was under my tongue. If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me; But certainly God has heard me; He has given heed to the voice of my prayer. Blessed be God, Who has not rejected my prayer nor removed His mercy and loving-kindness from being [as it always is] with me.
Psalm 116:1-2 I love the Lord, because He has heard [and now hears] my voice and my supplications. Because He has inclined His ear to me, therefore will I call upon Him as long as I live.
Psalm 118:25 Save now, I pray, O LORD; O LORD, I pray, send now prosperity.
God the Help of Those Who Seek Him
I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
From whence comes my help?
My help comes from the Lord,
Maker of heaven and earth.
Psalm 145:18 The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth.
Matthew 6:31-33 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
