Jeremiah:1:4-10 Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying,  Before you were formed in the body of your mother I had knowledge of you, and before your birth I made you holy; I have given you the work of being a prophet to the nations.  Then said I, O Lord God! see, I have no power of words, for I am a child.  But the Lord said to me, Do not say, I am a child: for wherever I send you, you are to go, and whatever I give you orders to say, you are to say.  Have no fear because of them: for I am with you, to keep you safe, says the Lord.  Then the Lord put out his hand, touching my mouth; and the Lord said to me, See, I have put my words in your mouth:  See, this day I have put you over the nations and over the kingdoms, for uprooting and smashing down, for destruction and overturning, for building up and planting.
See All...; Ephesians:6:10-20 Lastly, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of his power.  Take up God's instruments of war, so that you may be able to keep your position against all the deceits of the Evil One.  For our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against authorities and powers, against the world-rulers of this dark night, against the spirits of evil in the heavens.  For this reason take up all the arms of God, so that you may be able to be strong in the evil day, and, having done all, to keep your place.  Take your place, then, having your body clothed with the true word, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness;  Be ready with the good news of peace as shoes on your feet;  And most of all, using faith as a cover to keep off all the flaming arrows of the Evil One.  And take salvation for your head-dress and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:  With prayers and deep desires, making requests at all times in the Spirit, and keeping watch, with strong purpose, in prayer for all the saints,  And for me, that words may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make clear without fear the secret of the good news,  For which I am a representative in chains, and that I may say without fear the things which it is right for me to say.

See All...; James:5:16So then, make a statement of your sins to one another, and say prayers for one another so that you may be made well. The prayer of a good man is full of power in its working. See All...; 1 Peter:1:3-5 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who through his great mercy has given us a new birth and a living hope by the coming again of Jesus Christ from the dead,  And a heritage fair, holy and for ever new, waiting in heaven for you,  Who, by the power of God are kept, through faith, for that salvation, which will be seen at the last day.
See All...; Exodus:4:10-11 And Moses said to the Lord, O Lord, I am not a man of words; I have never been so, and am not now, even after what you have said to your servant: for talking is hard for me, and I am slow of tongue.  And the Lord said to him, Who has made man's mouth? who takes away a man's voice or hearing, or makes him seeing or blind? Is it not I, the Lord?
See All...; Judges:6:11-16 Now the angel of the Lord came and took his seat under the oak-tree in Ophrah, in the field of Joash the Abiezrite; and his son Gideon was crushing grain in the place where the grapes were crushed, so that the Midianites might not see it.  And the angel of the Lord came before his eyes, and said to him, The Lord is with you, O man of war.  Then Gideon said to him, O my lord, if the Lord is with us why has all this come on us? And where are all his works of power, of which our fathers have given us word, saying, Did not the Lord take us out of Egypt? But now he has given us up, handing us over to the power of Midian.  And the Lord, turning to him, said, Go in the strength you have and be Israel's saviour from Midian: have I not sent you?  And he said to him, O Lord, how may I be the saviour of Israel? See, my family is the poorest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father's house.  Then the Lord said to him, Truly, I will be with you, and you will overcome the Midianites as if they were one man.
See All...; 1 John:1:9If we say openly that we have done wrong, he is upright and true to his word, giving us forgiveness of sins and making us clean from all evil. See All...; Hebrews:6:13-20 For when God made his oath to Abraham, because there was no greater oath, he made it by himself,  Saying, Be certain that I will give you my blessing, and make your numbers very great.  And so, when he had been waiting calmly for a long time, God's word to him was put into effect.  For men at all times make their oaths by what is greater; and any argument is ended by the decision of the oath.  So that when it was God's desire to make it specially clear to those who by his word were to have the heritage, that his purpose was fixed, he made it more certain with an oath;  So that we, who have gone in flight from danger to the hope which has been put before us, may have a strong comfort in two unchanging things, in which it is not possible for God to be false;  And this hope is like a strong band for our souls, fixed and certain, and going in to that which is inside the veil;  Where Jesus has gone before us, as a high priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
See All...; Exodus:3:10-14 Come, then, and I will send you to Pharaoh, so that you may take my people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.  And Moses said to God, Who am I to go to Pharaoh and take the children of Israel out of Egypt?  And he said, Truly I will be with you; and this will be the sign to you that I have sent you: when you have taken the children of Israel out of Egypt, you will give worship to God on this mountain.  And Moses said to God, When I come to the children of Israel and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you: and they say to me, What is his name? what am I to say to them?  And God said to him, I AM WHAT I AM: and he said, Say to the children of Israel, I AM has sent me to you.
See All...; Mark:4:1-41 And again he was teaching by the seaside. And a very great number of people had come to him, so that he got into a boat on the sea and took his seat; and all the people were on the land by the seaside.  And he gave them teaching about a number of things in the form of stories, and said to them in his teaching, Give ear:  A man went out to put seed in the earth:  And while he was doing it, some was dropped by the wayside, and the birds came and took it for food.  And some went on the stones, where it had not much earth; and it came up straight away, because the earth was not deep:  And when the sun was high, it was burned; and because it had no root, it became dry and dead.  And some went among the thorns, and the thorns came up, and it had no room for growth and gave no fruit.  And some, falling on good earth, gave fruit, coming up and increasing, and giving thirty, sixty, and a hundred times as much.  And he said to them, Whoever has ears, let him give ear.  And when he was by himself, those who were round him with the twelve put questions to him about the purpose of the stories.  And he said to them, To you is given the secret of the kingdom of God, but to those who are outside, all things are given in the form of stories;  So that seeing they may see, and it will not be clear to them; and hearing it, they will not get the sense; for fear that they may be turned again to me and have forgiveness.  And he said to them, If you are not clear about this story, how will you be clear about the others?  The seed is the word.  And these are they by the wayside, where the word is planted; and when they have given ear, the Evil One comes straight away and takes away the word which has been planted in them.  And in the same way, these are they who are planted on the stones, who, when the word has come to their ears, straight away take it with joy;  And they have no root in themselves, but go on for a time; then, when trouble comes or pain, because of the word, they quickly become full of doubts.  And others are those planted among the thorns; these are they who have given ear to the word,  And the cares of this life, and the deceits of wealth, and the desire for other things coming in, put a stop to the growth of the word, and it gives no fruit.  And these are they who were planted on the good earth; such as give ear to the word, and take it into their hearts, and give fruit, thirty and sixty and a hundred times as much.  And he said to them, When the light comes in, do people put it under a vessel, or under the bed, and not on its table?  There is nothing covered which will not be seen openly, and nothing has been made secret which will not come to light.  If any man has ears, let him give ear.  And he said to them, Take care what you give ear to: in the same measure as you give you will get, and more will be given to you.  He who has, to him will be given: and he who has not, from him will be taken even that which he has.  And he said, Such is the kingdom of God, as if a man put seed in the earth,  And went to sleep and got up, night and day, and the seed came to growth, though he had no idea how.  The earth gives fruit by herself; first the leaf, then the head, then the full grain.  But when the grain is ready, he quickly sends men to get it cut, because the time for cutting has come.  And he said, What picture may we give of the kingdom of God, or with what story may we make it clear?  It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is put in the earth, is smaller than all the seeds on the earth,  But when it is planted, it comes up, and becomes taller than all the plants, and puts out great branches, so that the birds of heaven are able to take rest in its shade.  And with a number of such stories he gave them his teaching, as they were able to take it:  And without a story he said nothing to them: but privately to his disciples he made all things clear.  And on that day, when the evening had come, he said to them, Let us go over to the other side.  And going away from the people, they took him with them, as he was, in the boat. And other boats were with him.  And a great storm of wind came up, and the waves came into the boat, so that the boat was now becoming full.  And he himself was in the back of the boat, sleeping on the cushion: and they, awaking him, said, Master, is it nothing to you that we are in danger of destruction?  And he came out of his sleep, and gave strong orders to the wind, and said to the sea, Peace, be at rest. And the wind went down, and there was a great calm.  And he said to them, Why are you full of fear? have you still no faith?  And their fear was great, and they said one to another, Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea do his orders?
See All...; Deuteronomy:20:1-4 When you go out to war against other nations, and come face to face with horses and war-carriages and armies greater in number than yourselves, have no fear of them: for the Lord your God is with you, who took you up out of the land of Egypt.  And when you are on the point of attacking, let the priest come forward and say to the people,  Give ear, O Israel: today you are going forward to the fight; let your heart be strong; do not let uncontrolled fear overcome you because of those who are against you;  For the Lord your God goes with you, fighting for you to give you salvation from those who are against you.
See All...; Exodus:3:11-4 See All...:12; 1 Corinthians:6:1-20 How is it, that if any one of you has a cause at law against another, he takes it before a Gentile judge and not before the saints?  Is it not certain that the saints will be the judges of the world? if then the world will be judged by you, are you unable to give a decision about the smallest things?  Is it not certain that we are to be the judges of angels? how much more then of the things of this life?  If then there are questions to be judged in connection with the things of this life, why do you put them in the hands of those who have no position in the church?  I say this to put you to shame. Is there not among you one wise man who may be able to give a decision between his brothers?  But a brother who has a cause at law against another takes it before Gentile judges.  More than this, it is not to your credit to have causes at law with one another at all. Why not put up with wrong? why not undergo loss?  So far from doing this, you yourselves do wrong and take your brothers' property.  Have you not knowledge that evil-doers will have no part in the kingdom of God? Have no false ideas about this: no one who goes after the desires of the flesh, or gives worship to images, or is untrue when married, or is less than a man, or makes a wrong use of men,  Or is a thief, or the worse for drink, or makes use of strong language, or takes by force what is not his, will have any part in the kingdom of God.  And such were some of you; but you have been washed, you have been made holy, you have been given righteousness in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.  I am free to do all things; but not all things are wise. I am free to do all things; but I will not let myself come under the power of any.  Food is for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will put an end to them together. But the body is not for the desires of the flesh, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body:  And God who made the Lord Jesus come back from the dead will do the same for us by his power.  Do you not see that your bodies are part of the body of Christ? how then may I take what is a part of the body of Christ and make it a part of the body of a loose woman? such a thing may not be.  Or do you not see that he who is joined to a loose woman is one body with her? for God has said, The two of them will become one flesh.  But he who is united to the Lord is one spirit.  Keep away from the desires of the flesh. Every sin which a man does is outside of the body; but he who goes after the desires of the flesh does evil to his body.  Or are you not conscious that your body is a house for the Holy Spirit which is in you, and which has been given to you by God? and you are not the owners of yourselves;  For a payment has been made for you: let God be honoured in your body.
See All...; 1 Corinthians:11:1-34 So take me for your example, even as I take Christ for mine.  Now I am pleased to see that you keep me in memory in all things, and that you give attention to the teaching which was handed down from me to you.  But it is important for you to keep this fact in mind, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God.  Every man who takes part in prayer, or gives teaching as a prophet, with his head covered, puts shame on his head.  But every woman who does so with her head unveiled, puts shame on her head: for it is the same as if her hair was cut off.  For if a woman is not veiled, let her hair be cut off; but if it is a shame to a woman to have her hair cut off, let her be veiled.  For it is not right for a man to have his head covered, because he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.  For the man did not come from the woman, but the woman from the man.  And the man was not made for the woman, but the woman for the man.  For this reason it is right for the woman to have a sign of authority on her head, because of the angels.  But the woman is not separate from the man, and the man is not separate from the woman in the Lord.  For as the woman is from the man, so the man is through the woman; but all things are from God.  Be judges yourselves of the question: does it seem right for a woman to take part in prayer unveiled?  Does it not seem natural to you that if a man has long hair, it is a cause of shame to him?  But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given to her for a covering.  But if any man will not be ruled in this question, this is not our way of doing things, and it is not done in the churches of God.  But in giving you this order, there is one thing about which I am not pleased: it is that when you come together it is not for the better but for the worse.  For first of all, it has come to my ears that when you come together in the church, there are divisions among you, and I take the statement to be true in part.  For divisions are necessary among you, in order that those who have God's approval may be clearly seen among you.  But now, when you come together, it is not possible to take the holy meal of the Lord:  For when you take your food, everyone takes his meal before the other; and one has not enough food, and another is the worse for drink.  What? have you not houses to take your meals in? or have you no respect for the church of God, putting the poor to shame? What am I to say to you? am I to give you praise? certainly not.  For it was handed down to me from the Lord, as I gave it to you, that the Lord Jesus, on the night when Judas was false to him, took bread,  And when it had been broken with an act of praise, he said, This is my body which is for you: do this in memory of me.  In the same way, with the cup, after the meal, he said, This cup is the new testament in my blood: do this, whenever you take it, in memory of me.  For whenever you take the bread and the cup you give witness to the Lord's death till he comes.  If, then, anyone takes the bread or the cup of the Lord in the wrong spirit, he will be responsible for the body and blood of the Lord.  But let no man take of the bread and the cup without testing himself.  For a man puts himself in danger, if he takes part in the holy meal without being conscious that it is the Lord's body.  For this cause a number of you are feeble and ill, and a number are dead.  But if we were true judges of ourselves, punishment would not come on us.  But if punishment does come, it is sent by the Lord, so that we may be safe when the world is judged.  So then, my brothers, when you come together to the holy meal of the Lord, let there be waiting for one another.  If any man is in need of food, let him take his meal in his house; so that you may not come together to your damage. And the rest I will put in order when I come.
See All...; Psalm:105:1-45 O give praise to the Lord; give honour to his name, talking of his doings among the peoples.  Let your voice be sounding in songs and melody; let all your thoughts be of the wonder of his works.  Have glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who are searching after the Lord be glad.  Let your search be for the Lord and for his strength; let your hearts ever be turned to him.  Keep in mind the great works which he has done; his wonders, and the decisions of his mouth;  O you seed of Abraham, his servant, you children of Jacob, his loved ones.  He is the Lord our God: he is judge of all the earth.  He has kept his agreement in mind for ever, the word which he gave for a thousand generations;  The agreement which he made with Abraham, and his oath to Isaac;  And he gave it to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an eternal agreement;  Saying, To you will I give the land of Canaan, the measured line of your heritage:  When they were still small in number, and strange in the land;  When they went about from one nation to another, and from one kingdom to another people.  He would not let anyone do them wrong; he even kept back kings because of them,  Saying, Put not your hand on those who have been marked with my holy oil, and do my prophets no wrong.  And he took away all food from the land, so that the people were without bread.  He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was given as a servant for a price:  His feet were fixed in chains; his neck was put in iron bands;  Till the time when his word came true; he was tested by the word of the Lord.  The king sent men to take off his chains; even the ruler of the people, who let him go free.  He made him lord of his house, and ruler over everything he had;  To give his chiefs teaching at his pleasure, and so that his law-givers might get wisdom from him.  Then Israel came into Egypt, and Jacob was living in the land of Ham.  And his people were greatly increased, and became stronger than those who were against them.  Their hearts were turned to hate against his people, so that they made secret designs against them.  He sent Moses, his servant, and Aaron, the man of his selection.  He let his signs be seen among the people, and his wonders in the land of Ham.  He sent black night and made it dark; and they did not go against his word.  At his word their waters were turned to blood, and he sent death on all their fish.  Their land was full of frogs, even in the rooms of the king.  He gave the word, and there came the dog-fly, and insects over all the land.  He gave them ice for rain, and flaming fire in their land.  He gave their vines and their fig-trees to destruction, and the trees of their land were broken down.  At his word the locusts came, and young locusts more than might be numbered,  And put an end to all the plants of their land, taking all the fruit of the earth for food.  He put to death the first child of every family in the land, the first-fruits of their strength.  He took his people out with silver and gold: there was not one feeble person among them.  Egypt was glad when they went; for the fear of them had come down on them.  A cloud was stretched over them for a cover; and he sent fire to give light in the night.  At the people's request he sent birds, and gave them the bread of heaven for food.  His hand made the rock open, and the waters came streaming out; they went down through the dry places like a river.  For he kept in mind his holy word, and Abraham, his servant.  And he took his people out with joy, the men of his selection with glad cries:  And gave them the lands of the nations; and they took the work of the peoples for a heritage;  So that they might keep his orders, and be true to his laws. Give praise to the Lord.
