Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you.

and everything, whatever it be, that you ask for in your prayers, if you have faith, you shall obtain."
He also taught them by a parable that they must always pray and never lose heart.
As yet you have not asked for anything in my name: ask, and you shall receive, that your hearts may be filled with gladness.
Pray with unceasing prayer and entreaty on every fitting occasion in the Spirit, and be always on the alert to seize opportunities for doing so, with unwearied persistence and entreaty on behalf of all God's people,
Be earnest and unwearied in prayer, being on the alert in it and in your giving of thanks.
1 Thessalonians 5:17
Be unceasing in prayer.
And the prayer of faith will restore the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up to health; and if he has committed sins, they shall be forgiven.
Thou shalt not
When you give in charity, never blow a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and streets in order that their praises may be sung by men. I solemnly tell you that they already have their reward.
"Two men went up to the Temple to pray," He said; "one being a Pharisee and the other a tax-gatherer.
who swallow up the property of widows and mask their wickedness by making long prayers. They will be punished far more severely than others."
