"I would seek God, and to God I would set forth my case. — Job 5:8 NET
“Is anything impossible for the Lord?”—Commit your future to the Lord! Trust in him, and he will act on your behalf.—Do not be anxious about anything. Instead, in every situation, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, tell your requests to God.—Casting all your cares on him because he cares for you.
Hezekiah took the letter from the messengers and read it. Then Hezekiah went up to the Lord’s temple and spread it out before the Lord. Hezekiah prayed before the Lord.
“Before they even call out, I will respond; while they are still speaking, I will hear.”—The prayer of a righteous person has great effectiveness.
I love the Lord because he heard my plea for mercy, and listened to me. As long as I live, I will call to him when I need help.

Our bodies washed in pure water. — Heb 10:22 NET
“You are … to make a large bronze basin…. You are to put it between the tent of meeting and the altar and put water in it, and Aaron and his sons must wash their hands and their feet from it. When they enter the tent of meeting, they must wash with water so that they do not die. They must wash their hands and their feet so that they do not die.”—Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?—If someone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, which is what you are.
“In my flesh I will see God, whom I will see for myself, and whom my own eyes will behold, and not another.”—But nothing ritually unclean will ever enter into it.—You are too just to tolerate evil; you are unable to condone wrongdoing.—Therefore I exhort you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a sacrifice – alive, holy, and pleasing to God – which is your reasonable service.
