(James 4:8) Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you indecisive ones.
(John 7:28, 29) Then as he was teaching in the temple, Jesus called out: “You know me and you know where I am from. And I have not come of my own initiative, but the One who sent me is real, and you do not know him. 29 I know him, because I am a representative from him, and that One sent me.”

(Psalm 142:2) Before him I pour out my concern; Before him I tell about my distress
(Isaiah 30:20, 21) Though Jehovah will give you bread in the form of distress and water in the form of oppression, your Grand Instructor will no longer hide himself, and you will see your Grand Instructor with your own eyes. 21 And your own ears will hear a word behind you saying, “This is the way. Walk in it,” in case you should go to the right or in case you should go to the left.

(Hebrews 4:12) For the word of God is alive and exerts power and is sharper than any two-edged sword and pierces even to the dividing of soul and spirit, and of joints from the marrow, and is able to discern thoughts and intentions of the heart.
(James 1:23-25) For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, this one is like a man looking at his own face in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself, and he goes away and immediately forgets what sort of person he is. 25 But the one who peers into the perfect law that belongs to freedom and continues in it has become, not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work; and he will be happy in what he does.

(Matthew 6:19, 20) “Stop storing up for yourselves treasures on the earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Rather, store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes, and where thieves do not break in and steal.

(Psalm 25:4) 4 Make me know your ways, O Jehovah; Teach me your paths.

(2 Kings 15:1-5) 15 In the 27th year of King Jer•o•bo′am of Israel, Az•a•ri′ah the son of King Am•a•zi′ah of Judah became king. He was 16 years old when he became king, and he reigned for 52 years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Je•co•li′ah of Jerusalem. 3 He continued to do what was right in Jehovah’s eyes, just as his father Am•a•zi′ah had done. 4 However, the high places were not removed, and the people were still sacrificing and making sacrificial smoke on the high places. 5 Jehovah afflicted the king, and he remained a leper until the day of his death; and he stayed in a separate house, while the king’s son Jo′tham was in charge of the house, judging the people of the land.
(Jeremiah 30:11) “For I am with you,” declares Jehovah, “to save you. But I will make an extermination among all the nations to which I scattered you; However, you I will not exterminate. I will discipline you to the proper degree, And I will by no means leave you unpunished.”

(2 Kings 15:7) Then Az•a•ri′ah was laid to rest with his forefathers, and they buried him with his forefathers in the City of David; and his son Jo′tham became king in his place.
(2 Kings 15:32) In the second year of Pe′kah the son of Rem•a•li′ah the king of Israel, Jo′tham the son of King Uz•zi′ah of Judah became king.
(2 Chronicles 26:3-5) Uz•zi′ah was 16 years old when he became king, and he reigned for 52 years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Je•co•li′ah of Jerusalem. 4 He continued to do what was right in Jehovah’s eyes, just as his father Am•a•zi′ah had done. 5 And he kept searching for God in the days of Zech•a•ri′ah, who taught him to fear the true God. During the time he was searching for Jehovah, the true God made him prosper.
(2 Chronicles 26:16-21) However, as soon as he was strong, his heart became haughty to his own ruin, and he acted unfaithfully against Jehovah his God by entering the temple of Jehovah to burn incense on the altar of incense. 17 Immediately Az•a•ri′ah the priest and 80 other courageous priests of Jehovah went in after him. 18 They confronted King Uz•zi′ah and said to him: “It is not proper for you, Uz•zi′ah, to burn incense to Jehovah! It is only the priests who should burn incense, for they are the descendants of Aaron, those who have been sanctified. Go out from the sanctuary, for you have acted unfaithfully and you will receive no glory from Jehovah God for this.” 19 But Uz•zi′ah, who had a censer in his hand to burn incense, became enraged; and during his rage against the priests, leprosy broke out on his forehead in the presence of the priests in the house of Jehovah next to the altar of incense. 20 When Az•a•ri′ah the chief priest and all the priests turned toward him, they saw that he had been stricken with leprosy in his forehead! So they rushed him out of there, and he himself hurried out, because Jehovah had struck him. 21 King Uz•zi′ah remained a leper until the day of his death, and he kept staying in a separate house as a leper, for he had been excluded from the house of Jehovah. His son Jo′tham was in charge of the king’s house, judging the people of the land.

(Luke 6:12) On one of those days he went out to the mountain to pray, and he spent the whole night in prayer to God.
(Luke 22:40-46) On arriving at the place, he said to them: “Carry on prayer so that you do not enter into temptation.” 41 And he withdrew from them about a stone’s throw away, and he bent his knees and began to pray, 42 saying: “Father, if you want to, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, let, not my will, but yours take place.” 43 Then an angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. 44 But he was in such agony that he kept praying more earnestly; and his sweat became as drops of blood falling to the ground. 45 When he rose from prayer and went to the disciples, he found them slumbering, exhausted from grief. 46 He said to them: “Why are you sleeping? Get up and keep praying, so that you do not enter into temptation.”
(John 11:41, 42) So they took the stone away. Then Jesus raised his eyes heavenward and said: “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 True, I knew that you always hear me; but I spoke on account of the crowd standing around, so that they may believe that you sent me.”
(Psalm 65:2) O Hearer of prayer, to you people of all sorts will come.
