7 “[a]Ask, and it will be given to you; [b]seek, and you will find; [c]knock, and it will be opened to you.8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.9 Or what man is there among you [d]who, when his son asks for a loaf, [e]will give him a stone?10 Or [f]if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he?11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!
Hebrews 13:12-16New American Standard Bible (NASB)
12 Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people through His own blood, suffered outside the gate.13 So, let us go out to Him outside the camp, bearing His reproach.14 For here we do not have a lasting city, but we are seeking the city which is to come.
15 Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that [a]give thanks to His name.16 And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-24New American Standard Bible (NASB)
16 Rejoice always;17 pray without ceasing;18 in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.19 Do not quench the Spirit;20 do not despise prophetic [a]utterances.21 But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good;22 abstain from every [b]form of evil.
23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.24 Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.
2 Chronicles 7:12-16New American Standard Bible (NASB)
12 Then the Lord appeared to Solomon at night and said to him, “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice.13 If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people,14 and My people [a]who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.15 Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the [b]prayer offered in this place.16 For now I have chosen and consecrated this house that My name may be there forever, and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.
